I've been offered a solo exhibition at a local arts and crafts shop called The Cubby Hole. The exhibition will run throughout March, with the opening on the 5th. Last time I organised my own exhibition I had many months to prepare the invitations, layout, labels etc. I think it'll be easier second time round but I have less time, so let's see. It's all so exciting. Thanks to the lovely Carol for the opportunity.

After my Art Support class I went to the opening night of a new exhibition at Jobling Gowler in Macclesfield. The small show is displaying work from eleven artists who won prizes and commendations in last year's competition with the theme of Silk. It runs until Feb the 27th.

Sorry for this rather boring pseudo-advertising post today but I'm rather tired after attending the preview and can't think of anything fantastic or engaging to write. I'm now resting and listening to borrowed Jon and Vangellis, this is unprecedented, and the very newness of this act might prove inspirational for the coming week, which, on paper is to be filled with music. Music however, is rarely easily fitted to paper. It seeks to fight then whimpers itself at me when I'm all ready, on paper, to paint!

Congratulations! Get moving with those invitations. Your labels (because of those looonngg titles) might take more time than you think.

The Cubby Hole looks interesting.
