BBC North West tonight showed three of my images shot when ‘World on Fire’ was being filmed in St. Annes on the 12th February 2019.
I also had a couple of Radio interviews for BBC radio Lancashire to promote the ‘Burgers and Noodles’ photographic exhibition. Promoting our exhibition at the winder gardens on the 30th January with John Gillmore and also in the morning session with Graham Liver. Then another opportunity to promote our exhibition at the 1 year opening celebration of the Art Break Hotel. On the 8th March a group of artists from Blackpool and surrounding areas were invited to the BBC radio lancashire studio in Blackburn to talk about art on International Women’s day. It was amazing to be part of the celebration of women’s work at this venue.
Exhibition at Shaws in Blackpool, called ”Burgers and Noodles” by me and Dawn Mander. Running from 7th February till 20th March. Very successful private view on the 7th February.
In November I responded to another brief on curatorspace.
“You can be lonely anywhere, but there is a particular flavour to the loneliness that comes from living in a city, surrounded by millions of people.”
“Loneliness is personal, and it is also political. Loneliness is collective; it is a city.
The Lonely City: Adventures in the Art of Being Alone (2016)
Olivia Laing’s investigative book on the state of urban loneliness beautifully captures what it is like to live in the modern world, a juxtaposition of feeling both connected and isolated.
Submit 3 images of your work in relation to the state of urban loneliness along with an artists statement for a chance to have your work shown in an exciting new exhibition. Please note artists may be asked for more than one print if successful.
I was excited to have been chosen to show three of my art works in this exhibition and it was great to go to the private view at the Bowery in Leeds. Read all about the artists here. The exhibitions ran from the 25th January to the 22nd March 2019. The opening evening was well attended and it was great to meet the other artists.
