Elements of Time’s Past

“SILVER”

Tuesday 23rd July – Sunday 4th August 2013

Private View which will be opened officially by Peter Moss on Saturday 27th July 2 – 4 pm.

In a weeks time the Sam Scorer Gallery here in Lincoln plays host to the Contemporary Crafts Network, a local group of makers celebrating their 25th anniversary exhibition.  The present group consists of 28 members with specialists in the fields of ceramics, sculpture, felt work, weaving, textiles, silver, gold, jewellery, blown and kiln formed glass, paper, wood and furniture and mixed media.

This exhibition brings together work from all members, the theme of silver will run through the exhibition emphasising this anniversary and celebrating the achievement of working together across a range of medias for the last twenty-five years.

Well, now you know what it’s all about, this is what I’m putting in.

Vitrum Opera Exhibition Open

Had a smashing day at Harding House Gallery Yesterday at the Meet the Artist Event. Quite a few people turned up, more than I expected really as it wasn’t over publicised.  The Lincolnshire Echo gave me the cold shoulder again and didn’t print my press release (nothing new there then?),  it was a good job I activated my mailing list.

Champagne, bucks fizz and strawberries went down well and with a couple of sales so I’m very pleased with how the day went overall.  I think there may be some visitors returning at a later date to bring partners etc.

“We’re going to Wirksworth 2013!”

If you’ve never been to the Wirksworth Festival then it’s time you did. We went last year after being told by Richard Bett a jeweller and sculptor from Lincoln what a fantastic weekend could be had in this beautiful part of Derbyshire.  Every September the historic market town throws open its doors and warmly invites you to see great art in a truly wonderful place.  Inspirational work from both international and local artists fill the streets, houses and historic buildings of this fascinating town.

We were very lucky to be invited to stay with Maggie and Tim Cullen for the weekend and what a great time we had.  Maggie is a sculptor, this is one of her pieces that stands in our back room, brilliant stuff!

Made out of The Common Book of Prayer would you believe?

The Festival runs for just over two weeks and kicks off with The Opening Trails weekend. There’s so much to see and do over the weekend, it’s a job to fit it all in.  What with art, street performance, music, eateries, micro breweries and good real ale pubs (mmm….marvellous), all in this gorgeous setting called Wirksworth.

Well, this year we’re going again, this time after being selected to participate in the Opening Trails Weekend, and I can’t wait! So have a look at the Wirksworth Festival 2013  website, pop some dates in your diary and hopefully we’ll see you there.
