Artist Mari French at the opening evening of Beyond the Surface

Friday evening was the Opening Night of my solo exhibition Beyond the Surface, at Greyfriars Art Space in King’s Lynn. Over 30 people turned up over the two hours, from the collectors to the curious, and there was a good buzz about the place. It was a pleasure to meet and chat with so many enthusiastic, interesting people.

The photographer from the Lynn News came just before the event, so there should be something in this coming Friday’s edition.

Beyond the Surface exhibition

Over 30 people on the night


The ceramics are by Dameon Lynn, I love the textures and the way they complement my work. See more of Dameon’s work here.

The gallery is a great space to exhibit, bright and spacious, and can be hired by the week by artists and craftspeople wanting to hold a show. For details contact Greyfriars Art Space at http://www.greyfriarsartspace.co.uk

shadow & light …

 

shadow and light,

a fan of steps,

a stone vertebrae,

spiralling towards the sky

or plunging to earth.

spill of indigo, ochre, charcoal,

a symphony of grace.

steps worn smooth by the tread of centuries;

emerging into the sunshine of another day

or the dark chamber of another night.

studio space & swallows …

it looks like I’ve got a studio at last! having spent 3 years trying to find an accessible good-sized studio close to home (at present I’m working out of our tiny utility room, 6ft x 9ft).

I can’t wait to get using this space… it used to be a hayloft above stables and is built from typical Norfolk flint and brick. Apparently swallows flit in and out in the summer, there are nests… but not in the studio area, so no bird poo where ill be working, thankfully.

It needs a lot of work but fortunately I know a ‘man who can’, we’ll I’m married to him, lucky me ;0)

I’ll be posting updates on our progress…
