The day after the Southville Arts Trail is always a slightly strange one. It’s such a busy weekend, spent talking almost constantly with visitors, and the adrenalin that goes with that means that by Monday I am generally rather spaced out and unable to concentrate on anything useful......so as today the sun is shining I have decided to actually just STOP and not try to do anything [as I’ll only end up having to do it all over again].
It was a really busy and jolly event - with a mildly boozy preview on the Friday evening. Saturday and Sunday saw a huge number of people come through our temporary basement gallery. This year there was a pirate theme and many costumes were sported.
We had most of the usual family crowd showing:
Steve Broadway [my Pa] - Photography [although he wasn’t there in person as he’s spending an 8 week placement on the tiny Scottish island of Iona - we missed him]
Hannah Broadway [my sister] - Paintings, digital prints and ‘Monkey and Robot’ books
Stuart Low [my husbund] - Paintings and architectural glass
We were also joined by three of my lovely friends, whom I met just because we happend to have babies at the same time, only to discover later that we all share an interest in art:
Jen Orme - Porcelain cups, bells and jewellery
Sarah Duncan - Paintings
Hannah Hickman - Photography
I have added these hastily taken photos of the space when it had finally all been hung and the clutter removed just before everyone arrived on Friday evening.
