So much has been going on behind the scenes here at ART HQ. We have now moved into a new premises just outside Marlborough. A converted barn is now HQ for both the ART Salon and the GET MUCKY Art courses. There is much work still to be done here, so if you do visit...be prepared!
We are in the middle of our annual art course bonanza. For four weeks this summer we have the artists working directly with children from near and far, creating allsorts and identifying some really hot young talent. We love this break with the children. The summer months are historically quiet on the art front and this gives the artists an opportunity to make some cash in lean months and the children access to a very talented and imaginative bunch of people. This year we have also brought on board the inexhaustible Sharky and George to break up the art with...well...so far..... about 200 water bombs, 60 marshmallow Towers, 10 Quest Games....Happy Days!
Back at HQ we are busy collecting and curating for four shows this winter and our Autumn Gift catalogue. We are at Bristol Affordable Art Fair in September, The ART Salon with the Haven in Wessex at Avington PArk, Winchester in October and Edinburgh Art Fair in November, polished off with our Christmas hoolie here at HQ.
I am exhausted thinking about it, may have to leave you now to lie down with a cool flannel on my brow.
