My Artweeks 2022 exhibition is happening both on my website and in real life. I'm showing airy, contemporary abstract works on paper, in watercolour, water-based mixed media and drawing. There are 60 framed pieces to see. And more in the browsers.
The exhibition catalogue is on my website during Artweeks, and the in-person studio exhibition is open:
• Saturday 7 May: 12 noon - 6pm
• Sunday 8 May: 12 noon - 6pm
• Friday 13 May: 2 - 8pm *late opening & closing*
• Saturday 14 May: 12 noon - 6pm
• Sunday 15 May: 12 noon - 6pm
Otherwise, visits are by prior appointment only.
COVID awareness: The studio exhibition will be ventilated, with hand-sanitiser and masks available. Even if cases are dropping, visitors are asked to be understanding that other visitors may, for good if hidden reasons, prefer social distancing and mask-wearing.
