I had hoped to blog every day leading up to, and during the exhibition openings this week, but as I’ve found out with everything to do with this project it is very tiring.
The exhibition looks great. That’s not just me being big headed, visitors have told me that throughout. The preview went really well with good conversations and comments – quality over quantity.
This last week I have been working in the gallery on sample pieces. Due to all the meetings, emails, planning, etc, this is the first time I’ve been able to sit down and start concentrating on the artworks. My wall planner is above my desk and I keep looking at it and starting to worry that the first ‘proper’ exhibition is only 7 weeks away. In that time I’ve got to produce all the pieces to show, write the accompanying book ready to print, finalise the workshops and there was one more thing… ah yes, sleep. But then us artists are very good at working right up to the deadline.
The exhibition at Art Space Portsmouth finishes tomorrow (Friday 4th March).
