Wirral’s Arts and Mind festival

My piece “Can You Feel?” is on display at Williamson Art Gallery and Museum in Birkenhead for the Arts and Minds festival until 19th October. Today had quite a lot going on including live music, poetry and many groups working with mental health. The Art exhibition for the Arts and Mind festival is only small but has some interesting pieces and was i happy to participate as i think my art fits the theme quite well, i didn’t realise that what i wrote in my application form would be presented at the side of my work. If i knew this i would of wrote something different explaining my piece.

Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival

Launch of the Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival 2014. My piece “Trapped” is at Warrington Museum & Art Galley along side a great variety of work until 1st November. It was a nice surprise to see it at the side of Anthony Barrow’s work, one year ago i attended some of his mixed media classes and actually did my first charcoal drawing in one of them. See more of his work at www.anthonybarrow.co.uk he’s also a nice character to be around. If you’re in the area have a look at everything else that is going on around Warrington during the arts festival.

Can You Feel?

My Piece for Wirral’s arts and mind festival that coincides with World Mental Health Day. The hand is based on my own with words by Bret Easton Ellis from his novel “American Psycho”. The exhibition will take place at; The Williamson Art Gallery and Museum, Slatey Road Birkenhead CH43 4UE and will be open to the public on Friday 10th October and will finish on Sunday 19th October 2014.

Blink of Life

My piece for the Alderly Hey Children’s Hospital Exhibition and charity auction on friday the 17th of october to help raise vital funds for one of Europe’s biggest and busiest children’s hospital. The theme of the exhibition is the idea of centenary, comparing past and future. I came up with a diffrent concept originally but decided this would be a better suited for what we are trying to raise money for.
