Another reason for being so very busy is our annual Christmas fair in Leek, Staffordshire.
The Staffordshire Contemporary Artist and Designers Fair is a fantastic Artist and Designer fair, set in a beautiful venue, The Foxlowe. The building is set at the top of the town’s ancient market place and acts as a focus for all things related to the arts. They have a rather smashing fine art café, too !
The event is a fantastic chance to start your Christmas shopping with a huge range of beautiful objects of desire !
The Artist & Designers Fair is a showcase for original and contemporary art, craft and design from both local and National artisans.
Anyway, I digress … busy … yes !
As part of my Foundation Degree studies, I am part of the year 2 team who is coordinating our college submissions … as well as finding the time to create our own artwork to show, we are holding planning meetings, talking with the press and liaising with college press officers … phew ! It’s a great opportunity to get hands on experience of exhibition planning though. Fingers crossed it all comes together on the day, eh !!!
Here is a quick preview of what I’ll be exhibiting …
Photobombed by my cat !
As if this event isn’t keeping me busy enough, I am also exhibiting in ANOTHER exhibition … on the same weekend …. eeek !!
