I am Popping and Fizzing!
What I mean by that is that from next week I have a “Pop Up” exhibition in Galeri Harlech so – the past few months I have been occupied making art and exploring many other avenues:- so I am fizzing with a busy head!
Stitch to Stitch
The Stitch by Stitch exhibition at the Willow Gallery in Oswestry was fantastic. I do not think there has been such a wonderful display of fine art textiles outside of the home counties. I am delighted that my piece “Where the Wind Speaks sold during the exhibition.
However, when my work sells through a gallery, there is always a tinge of sadness as I don’t get to know who appreciated it enough to make a purchase.
I am hopeful that Alison Holt and Suzette Smart will put on another event in a couple of years time. It really was excellent and would make a terrific biennial exhibition.
Galeri Harlech Pop Up
From the 4th September until the 30th September 2023 I have been invited to show some work in the Pop Up Space at Galeri Harlech.
I am more or less ready – my final piece of work is being stretched before I frame it. The exhibition will feature a combination of stitched work, along with some small abstract mixed media pieces.
What is keeping my mind buzzing with activity?
Well – many things, One of them is the AI debate and every time I engage with chatGPT, I find myself going down a rabbit hole and losing half a day! So far I have mainly used it for word combinations – picture titles mostly, as yet, the ones Chat GPT comes up with do not sound like me – but it is fun playing.
The other area I am currently investigating is Substack – I do miss the simplicity of blogging in the “good old days”. For those of you who have subscribed to my newsletter, you maybe aware that you have not had any, or maybe just the one, so I am looking to see if Substack would offer an easier solution for me and you.
If you have had experiences with ChatGPT or Substack, I would love to hear about it in the comments.
