May has already been a busy month with the introduction of the new jewellery collection to our gallery, Back Road Artworks & to the website. Then with visitors to the gallery, end of year accounts to complete & a workshop with the School of Outdoor Art with Pete Ward (see IG & FB for images) all in the first week!
It is the first time in 20+ years that I have not exhibited at the RHS Spring Garden event with the Worcestershire Guild. This is usually my first big event of the year. As 2023 is a 'time out' for development of new work etc. I will not be showing.
However one event which had been booked for a while was 'Serendipitous' with fellow maker Louise Darby....
9th - 12th June 10 - 4 daily
Clay Barn, Redhill, Alcester, Warwickshire B49 6NQ
This is Louise's 40th anniversary summer exhibition & I have shown at her venue on several occasions over the years. The exhibition is always a delight with carefully curated artists & makers who are invited to join Louise in her wonderful space. Many visitors also enjoy the garden which is a further beautiful display & wildlife haven.
I intend to exhibit a range of my metalwork & jewellery including the latest 'Texture & pattern' pieces. As there is less than a month until set up I had better get busy in the studio!
Tim will be remaining in St Ives while I am away so our St Ives gallery will be open as usual.
