My Reward!

October 3, 2011

 

Jo here – a Solero was my reward for walking the 32 miles from Ditchling Museum (just north of Brighton, West Sussex) to Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne. It was part of an Artist Collaboration project that I am doing with Ditchling Museum called ‘In Search of Gill Sans’. Whilst DM is closed for major Heritage Lottery Funded rebuild, the collection, including the wooden, Gill Sans, Letterpress is housed at Towner. I’ll now be working with different groups, inspiring them on the contemporary uses of Letterpress.

A few weeks ago I was privileged to be commissioned by Fermynwoods Contemporary Art in Northamptonshire to work with artists, David Littler and Simon Woolham for two weeks ¬†– on a narrow boat! We went from south of Milton Keynes to Waddenhoe and back. I became completely obsessed with crochetting……

My wonderful project ‘Field Studies’ for the Timespan organization in Sutherland, has finally finished. It had many aspects and took 2 years to complete – if you ever get the chance to go to this amazing part of the world and meet the great people – do – ¬†they are really in to their contemporary art.

So having finished my Solero, I’m now off to Midland Road, Bedford to do a project called ‘The Excursionist’ for Bedford Contemporary Arts – i’ll let you know how it goes.
