So this month I will be making an exhibition of myself...
Well not really, but you never know! On October 28th I take over Studio 20 in Wensum Street Norwich with a little Pop up Expo as I've chosen to call it to showcase my photography, art and there will be some beautiful art glass on display too - the only thing not made by me.
This will mark my third anniversary of MyriadLifePhotoArt and what an exciting and interesting three years it has been. I never imagined my work would be shown at Norwich Castle and Norwich Cathedral - that has been such a great honour. I moved to Norwich nearly thirty years ago and love this city with all my heart so to have my work sold in two such amazing historical city landmarks is wonderful.
I decided to have a solo exhibition because after spending the last few years mounting my images on small hardwood blocks, I now have some much larger pieces to showcase and as wonderful as the gift shops who sell my work are, they aren't big enough to take my much larger pictures. Please be assured that the smaller images will be available too, they make lovely gifts (this is my subtle reference to the time of year we are rapidly approaching... nuff said.)
As well as the larger images on wood, I have been experimenting with the smaller pieces too, not everything has to be square or landscape so watch this space...
If images on wood are not for you, there will also be traditional mounts and frames and a collection of greeting cards with local scenes and also cards for the cryptically aforementioned time of year.
On occasion I get the chance to indulge in my other interest (usually when him indoors is away and I get to spread out and make a mess,) which is abstract art and sketching. I'm lead in two directions, my love of capturing street characters and textural colourful shapes. Love it or hate it, I know abstract art is not everyone's cup of tea but I enjoy creating so please come and judge for yourself.
Lastly but not least, the art glass. Well you will find that speaks for itself... so come see - unusual shapes and designs in attractive colourways.
Entry to the exhibition is free, I will be on hand all day of course so please don't be shy, come say hello and I hope you will enjoy my work.
PS I expect you are wondering, why the seagull? Well Gavin the Gull is my lucky mascot and has taken on his own persona, he even has his own Facebook page. Look out for Gavin when you are walking along Wensum Street Norwich to find the expo...
