|Family Holiday, Amity Point circa January 1972|
We all have tales to tell.
Interesting snippets of personal history
that reveal a little about ourselves and the times
we have experienced. Tales which can be fascinating
not only to ourselves but to others as well.
At the beginning of 2012 I held an
exhibition of altered book art at
Redland Museum Cleveland.
Since then, the Museum has
doubled in size and now boasts
2 large gallery spaces perfect for
sharing artists works with the community.
I thought it would be a wonderful opportunity
to coordinate an exhibition of artist books
and works on paper and to make the exhibition
relevant to the venue by setting a theme of personal histories.
Something everyone has but no one shares.
I have succeeded in procuring space for the exhibition at the Museum
and am currently in negotiations with the Exhibitions Officer
to set a date. We have earmarked late 2014 in order to
give artists time to work on their submissions.
There won't be any fees to participate in this event
however artists will be responsible for the cost of shipping
for any works submitted.
Artists will also be able to sell their works if they choose.
(commission for the Museum for any works sold will be applicable).
I hope you will consider participating in this event,
whether you are local to the area or from somewhere far away,
we would love to include your artist book or work on paper
to share something of your personal history.
More details to come............
