I am currently finalizing my dates for this year, and it is looking busy so far. You can see all the dates also in the exhibition page at the top.
The first thing that is going to happen is on 15th April in Loughborough, Public and Plant Café, where the Art College used to be. The m’Other exhibition is going to happen later in the year (see below) but on the 15th there will be like a pre-show, it will be interactivev with postcard sized artwork from the artists that will exhibit later, inviting visitors to leave their own perspective on motherhood and art.
From Mon 29 April to Sun 4 June 2023, there will be exhibitions in three Inspire Libraries, Arnold, Beeston & Worksop, linked with the Open Studio Notts open studio event. I had a photographer visit me in my studio last week, and I reckon it will be in Beeston where there will be photos from him showing me in my studio on display, alongside some of my artwork.
On 13th/14th of May, I will open my studio in Wollaton to the public. If you have been before, you know how these go in general: I will display and sell my work, and I’ll be here for a chat and a tea – and I hope you’ll pop in! This is a really friendly event that is foremost about staying in touch or discovering a new connection.
From June 24th to July 30th 2023, “m’Other” exhibition will take place at the Plant and Public Café, what once used to be Loughborough Art College, East Midlands, UK. With 20 artists who are mothers and incorporate the topic of motherhood and pregnancy into their work. There will be a mixture of 2D and 3D work, and I am really excited to see how it will all come together. I will be showing my milk, blood, and thing with feathers piece there for the first time. There will be an opening/private view which I plan to attend, but I don’t know yet when this is going to be.
From October 7th, 2023 – January 14, 2024, I will be showing “Others”, an installation of seven heads and scrolls in the outlook gallery of the Minneapolis Centre of Book Arts MCBA, Minneapolis, MN, USA.
I am planning to be in Minneapolis for a week for installing the exhibition, visiting the twin cities, meeting with artists there, and possibly hold a workshop on the weekend. Please do get in touch if you are there, too, so we can set up a meeting!
