Exhibition Countdown


It’s not been an unusual sight to see me carrying stacks of work between the Ecclesall Road area and Shalesmoor for the last few weeks, as I’ve been getting all of my work down to my studio in preparation for my exhibition. I’m terrible at finishing off little details, such as signing my work, and putting mirror plates on canvases, so I’ve been trying to get on with that side of things. I’ve also been stitching like crazy, trying to finish off my cross-stitch and a self portrait I’ve been working on for ages.
The promotional side of things has taken up a lot of my time, but I’m happy to say I’ve had some response, and I’ve been mentioned in The Star newspaper, as well as having been contacted by local magazines.
I still have lots of work to do before the opening on Friday, such as preparing some information and prices to accompany my work, but I’m confident that I’ll be ready on time. I’ll start hanging my work on Thursday.
People keep asking me if I’m excited, and, although I’m sure I will be on the opening night, I’m not excited at the moment. It feels like I’m just sort of doing my job, even though it’s the best job in the world.
My biggest worry is that I won’t have enough work to fill such a large gallery space. Find out if I manage it this Friday by coming down to say “Hi”. The exhibition is at KIAC, Lion Works, Ball Street, Sheffield.

Here’s a  photograph of how my studio was looking when I left it this morning.

    I wish I could visit!
    I installed work for my new show yesterday and I can empathise totally with the excitement side of things, it does feel like a ‘job’ (and it is TOTALLY THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD), but I’m more struck with fear that no-one else will like my work.
