This week in the Tiny Cat Gallery we have a solo show by Jo Coffey. Her drawings are exquisite and show the joy and sadness that comes with cats. I’m struggling with this week’s exhibition for a couple of reasons. […]
Representing artists The current exhibition (Philip Ryland – Retrospective) has had some sales. I’ve not been pushing to sell work but I have been promoting it like a larger gallery would. I have a Shopify Lite store attached to my […]
The first week’s exhibition is packed away (but available to buy in the gallery shop) The second exhibition is by Philip Ryland and it is a Retrospective of his current work. Philip sent me 10 paintings, each 95 x 63mm. They […]
The first week of the Tiny Cat Gallery has gone very well. From an open call on CuratorSpace to a jam packed programme that looks like it will run into September. All in a cardboard box. This post is a […]
Yesterday, through the wonders of technology, a few tiny cats visited another non traditional gallery. The Open Dresser Gallery is a multi level exhibition space inside a salvaged dresser. It is curated by mixed media artist Sally Eldars who’s current […]

I’m setting up the Tiny Cat Gallery for the preview of ‘A Feast for Your Eyes’ tonight. The artist wanted a draped background and an ornate frame. The best I could do was a nip to Wilkos and some distressing […]
Unusual gallery space staffed by small plastic cats.
And here is my work in Lizzie Donegan’s home. I sent her bird drawings on vellum that was scored, cut and punctured so it could fit together with small grooved sticks. The vellum had a life of it’s own and […]
Time to pack down the exhibition. I spoke to Lizzie Donegan yesterday to compare notes and the question of who the artist is came up. With my work I absolve responsibility to the birds and elements, or to sounds or […]
Lizzie sent me 4 of her artworks. One is the amazing lady with musical hair. Two are A4 or close and can be mounted on a wall. The last is a amoeba shape cut out of folded newspaper. This last […]
I have taken down one of my pictures – it was a 1920’s illustration of some orange flowers and put up 2 pieces by Lizzie Donegan instead. I’d like to change the spacing around but getting any fixings in my […]
A lockdown project exchanging artwork with other artists, displaying it and discussing the process.
Juan Bolivar, an artist and curator, explores the history and practice of curating, and provides ten key questions for independent curators and artists to help guide you in developing your first exhibitions. Bolivar’s painting practice runs parallel to his curating practice; first initiating TRAILER (2001-05) – an artist collective utilising temporary locations to stage exhibitions – and since, going on to curate over 40 exhibitions as an independent curator.
We’re currently shortlisting for Issue 2. There’s so many really excellent work and it’s going to be extra hard to select this year!

I continued to research the New Forest, traversing the land, accessing archives and meeting with relevant arts professionals and local organisations to try to identify potential opportunities. The bursary not only provided me with some resources but also a vital […]
A recent event at MAC in Birmingham brought practitioners and curators together to interrogate ‘the (in)visibility of disabled artists’. Anneka French reports on a productively critical discussion.
Four and a half years to be precise. Back in 2014 I received a small project grant from Creative Case North to work on a collaborative project. I wanted to place a disabled artist with an organisation to be able […]
“It is a waste of time hating a mirror or its reflection instead of stopping the hand that makes glass with distortions slight enough to pass unnoticed until one day you peer into your face under a merciless white […]
