With less than a month until the opening of WHEN THE MOON HITS YOUR EYE it has been all go go go in the 2010 RSA John Kinross Scholars camp. Compiling mailing lists, press releases, ordering flyers and finalising promotional posters. Artist David Cass is just finishing up an artists book catalogue for the show, featuring work from all the artists showing and nice little behinds the scenes footage of us working in Florence. He has a superb eye for this sort of thing so I am eagerly anticipating the final product.www.davidcass.co.uk
It’s very exciting for me to watch a little seed of an exhibition idea bloom into something substantial, something thats gaining both acknowledgement and financial support from major players in the Scottish art scene.
Although at times it’s been a wee bit stressful organising and planning this show, it has also been an incredibly rewarding process, making contacts and learning skills that will be applied over and over again in my years as a practicing artist. This is what can be achieved as a ‘do-it-yourself’ artist, and what you can get if you just ask the right questions to the right people.
Still, a few weeks of hard graft to go yet before I can enjoy a glass of wine at the opening…. nervous excitement….
WHEN THE MOON HITS YOUR EYE opens with a special preview on 28 April at 7pm, the show will run at Shoreditch Townhall Basement from Friday 29 April until Sunday 1 May.
