Another week has passed and I’m still working on my Arts Council application, which I have set the deadline of Monday, March 3rd to submit. One of my planned meetings last week to finalise details had to be postponed until this coming week. I’m busy writing, and re-writing, finding information and doing a bit of virtual shopping. And now, if I didn’t have enough to do already, checking emails, Facebook, blog, etc. I have now signed up for Twitter! Trying to work out the difference between # and @, re-tweeting and all the other Twitter etiquette. Find me at https://twitter.com/plants2paper
With just over a week to go it’s slowly coming together, but then as artists we are used to working right up to a deadline. The new member of my support team has been a big help, keeping me sane. I must remember to add my Morale Manager to the ‘In Kind’ section!
Not only content with finalising my project, in my role as chairman of GASP, our studio gallery committee, we have been busy organising a very important exhibition for Art Space Portsmouth. John Mynott, one of the first members of ASP, over 30 years ago, will be leaving his studio soon. He has no space to store his life long body of work and so we were asked by his family to organise a show to sell his amazingly intricate creations. This has been very hard for us as John’s work is of such high quality it really should be in national collections.
So if you would like to own one of John’s amazing works you have until the end of this week to view the exhibition and make your sealed bid. Full detail at www.artspace.co.uk/?page_id=75
I have to thank my committee for doing most of the work while I’ve been busy on this, especially Julie Graves who has taken the lead. I’m pleased she has done such a good job as she will be Project Manager for Grow An Exhibition, keeping me on track during the next 18 months.
Oh well, back to my budget.
