"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Art in the Pen - next weekend

Spent this weekend packing and sorting work to take to Skipton next Friday for Art in the Pen. I had some last minute framing to do, but finally all is ready. I've gone for a bigger pen this year. Not because I have any more work than I took last year. But I thought it would be better for people viewing the work if it was hung in a bigger space. Hopefully the extra expense will be justified.  There are 70 artists taking part this year, a wide cross-section of disciplines; Sculptors, Ceramists, Jewelers, Painters and a few Printmakers. I'm looking forward to meeting up again with some familiar faces from last year and meet some new friends.
