somerset art weeks now open

The exhibition at Somerset Art Weeks opened on Friday evening (18th September). After two days of frantic hanging of paintings, we had a very relaxing private view accompanied by the lilting sound of latin guitar with the duo "de la luna" . In the photo, they are flanked by Steve Morris's chicken paintings.
The exhibition is in a 18th century congregational chapel (Rook Lane Arts) in Frome and I am exhibiting along with six other artists - Claudia Phipps, Carolyn Finch, Steve Morris, Sue Spurrier (my mum!), Alison Bundle and Sarah Fraser. It is an amazing space - very contemporary in a very old building. We have had lots of children visiting who have enjoyed our quiz and adding to our collage in the cafe.

Mulberry (who is a white park cow painted as a result of the jeep ride in my last blog) peeks out at you as you approach the doors of the chapel. At 150cm square he is quite a large beast. I am hoping someone comes who loves cows and has a very big house.....
