"Bits and Pieces"
Stamford Art Gallery
The Gallery is in Maiden Lane , Stamford and offers art from mainly local artists and has an excellent picture framing service. Beverley, the owner, has a number of my pots on display and for sale.
Connect Independent Art Fair
The fair took place in February 2019 in The Mall Gallery, The Mall, London. I had four of my pots on the Stamford Fine Arts stand courtesy of Jeff Stone. Jeff sold two of them - my first sale in a London exhibition.
Clay Craft Magazine
Pleased that one of my pots was featured in an edition of the Clay Craft magazine. The pot was subsequently sold at the Connect Independent Art Fair, London
Open Upp Art
A "pop up" art gallery was opened in Uppingham from the 2nd to 23rd March and again from 8th April to 4th May. Work from over forty artists was exhibited be in the gallery including some of my pots.
I was fortunate to sell eleven of my pots, three of which went to France.
Stamford Pottery Market
The annual Stamford Potters Market was held on 5th and 6th May in the Art Centre. Around twenty potters from the area took part and the two days were extremely busy.
Summer of Ceramics - Doddington Hall
The Summer of Ceramics exhibition took place at Doddington Hall near Lincoln from Saturday 27th July to the 8th September. It featured the Hall's collection of ceramics which was built up over the last three hundred years. The exhibition also included work by current international and national ceramists. I was lucky enough to be accepted for the exhibition and was delighted to have sold eight of the ten pieces I put in.
Anglian Potters - Summer Exhibition
The Anglian Potters Summer Exhibition was held in Cambridge as usual but not in Emanuel College.
All Saints church was the venue with the exhibition opening on 10th August and ending on 25th August. All Saints is a good example of a Victorian church with leading members of the Arts & Crafts movement being involved in its stained glass windows and wall decoration.
ESC Artists exhibition and market
I was invited to join the ESC (Escape the Ordinary) Artists events for 2019. The autumn exhibition takes place in the Art Gallery, Stamford, from 21st October to 3rd November.
The next Anglian Potters demonstration day will take place on Sunday 10th November when Richard Heeley will be demonstrating how he makes his fabulous white and blue pots.
Yarrow Gallery Christmas Exhibition - Oundle, Northants
I have been invited to take part in the Yarrow Gallery Exhibiton. The exhibition opens on 27th November and closes on 7th December. It's a popular exhibition and I was delighted to be invited to take part.
