With Christmas fast approaching lots of galleries are busy hanging their seasonal exhibitions RIGHT NOW. They are all up ladders, polyfillering and painting ready for the off, probably working late into the night trying to hang pictures in straight lines to get it all ready for the private view on Friday!
I've got two sets of work in exhibitions opening this weekend, both in beautiful rural galleries, which is fantastic as it means I get to spend the day pottering round in the countryside.
First is the exhibition "Artful Storytellers" at Otterton Mill, which is a great mix of 3D and 2D work including ceramics and automatons as well as illustrations and runs through until January. I've got a selection of framed and unframed work showing as part of this exhibition.
Then across at Redearth Gallery is the "Printjoy" exhibition, running until 11th December. There I have linoprints as well as cards, tea towels and canvas bags. The whole exhibition is an exciting mix of printmaking too, including textiles, ceramics and jewelry and I think I will find this one pretty tempting as I can't resist an exhibition of printmaking!
