This year my big plan was to blog every day from the Affordable Art Fair, with exciting news and gossip, pictures of celebrities – last year we had Rob Brydon – and all sorts of interesting observations – “and now from our intrepid reporter at the scene….” That sort of thing.
But I can’t – my feet hurt too much…
A close-up of my work with my linocut, West End Girl, in the middle, and some of my oil paintings to the right ….
The lovely Trevor, who helps us hang the stand every year, with Sonia Rollo‘s work to the right…
And here is Louise Davies‘ work, with three of her oil paintings, surrounded by her etchings….
I’ll post some more photos tomorrow of the first of the two Private Views.
1. Sort out my unframed prints.
2. Clean and trim them.
3. Cut some backing board.
4. Sign and number the prints.
5. Wrap in acetate.
6. Label and price them.
7. Divide them into two piles – one for the browsers and one for the store cupboard.
8. Take them back to the studio ready to take to the Affordable Art Fair.
9. Sell them all.
10. Start world domination.
I’ve had some takers for tickets for the Affordable Art Fair (see my last post) but I still have a few more. Let me know if you want one – and you don’t have to buy anything – honest…
A large cardboard box arrived at the studio this week, full of tickets, leaflets and maps – it’s that time of year again. The Affordable Art Fair returns to Battersea Park next month and Half Moon Studio will be there again for the thirteenth (!) year.
And, of course, this is the start of the studio’s annual collective panicking – rushing to get some last minute editioning done, trying (and failing) to produce a workable hanging plan, dashing to and from the framers, etc.
Anyway, as usual, I have some free tickets for either the Charity PV evening (Wednesday 19th October) or the Gala PV evening (Thursday 20th October). The tickets will also get you in for free at any other time if you can’t make it on either of those nights.
I will be there for most of the time, if anyone wants to say hello – and don’t worry, you will be allowed to leave the stand without buying anything – all those rumours flying about last year were definitely not true….
Email me if you’d like one – first come, first served, of course….
