Networking and community

I have just been to the inaugural meeting of the Sherborne Artists networking group @netWORKartSherb. Being an artist is sometimes a lonely old life and it is god to get out and meet up with other like-minded people.

I took my puppy for moral support and spent half the time trying to stop her chewing up the furniture. The other half of the time was spent finding out about the new Sherborne Community Arts Centre which is hopefully being built near Sherborne House, a beautiful part of our ancient town. It sounds like a really worthwhile project - but they have lots of funds to raise in order to build it.

To do my little part I am selling my Christmas Cards this year in aid of the Arts Centre Fund -

I hope they raise the money. It would be great for Sherborne to have a art hub like this for workshops, performances, exhibitions and to build on the increasingly arty vibe that Sherborne posesses.
