Sunday 10th-Tuesday 12th April
This year I’m doing my first trade fair. I’m rather nervous but things are starting to take shape. I’m hoping to put some photos up nearer the time of work I will be taking to the show.
Green Walk Open House Art and Craft Exhibition
Saturday 30 April and Sunday 1st May
This year the Exhibition celebrates its 10th year. This will be my fourth time and I’m happily returning to my friend’s house to exhibit with Jim Wright (a wonderful painter that brings landscapes to life) his son Gordan Wright, (a talented young illustrator worth keeping an eye out for) and Carol who makes beautiful porcelain ceramics.
Originally started when a small group of creative neighbours got together, invited some creative friends and opened their homes for them to exhibit in. What was born was a wonderful way to view artists’ work in a relaxed home environment rather than the clinical one of a gallery. 10 years later and the exhibition is still going strong.
The Art Market Holmfirth
Sun 26 June. 10am-4pm
Last year I won a place as a newcomer, this year I’m returning and really looking forward to taking part. The Art Market is a supportive and friendly event, the atmosphere is relaxed which makes for the perfect event for customers to meet artists and artists to meet customers.
Heatons Arts Trail
Saturday 25th -Sunday 26th
Now in its third year the Arts Trail is growing again. More venues, more artists and hopefully more fun workshops. Line up to be announced soon, watch this space.
