Being full of cold has enforced a couple of days snuffling on the sofa - which enabled me to reflect on last year and have a little think about how 2015 might pan out - - - when, to kick things off, an email dropped into my inbox - - - telling me that - - - my proposal for an art piece at CLEY15 has been - - - ACCEPTED!
YAY!Past artists include:
I'm lucky enough to have met and known all three of the above - lovely, lovely people with considered and erudite work.
Sadly, Roger Ackling died last year - I was privileged to have Roger as a tutor on my MA
Here's what the CLEY15 webpage says:
"Each year our exhibition is designed and selected by a different curator to promote exceptional contemporary art by national and local artists in varying disciplines... We have a proven track record of success. We attract over 6,000 visitors each year, and our quality has been recognised by Arts Council England and The Esmee Fairbairn Foundation."

How exciting. I am very pleased to be part of a local and national contemporary exhibition with a rigorous selection panel, which is taking my ideas seriously.
This will offer me a chance to extend some of the concepts I started to explore during my MA:
My proposal is to respond to the hidden spaces and things around the site(s), celebrating them through recording and labelling them.
This would give them a sense of importance - maybe turning them into works of art themselves...The first visit/meeting is in February, when I can make an initial visit to the spaces.
