On patrol

28 Jan

Thursday 28th January 2010  1.30pm-4.00pm

During these hours me and another student had to sit there and if anyone came in answer any questions they asked or wanted to know about the show.while i was there tink 3 or 4 people came.I didn’t think anyone would while we were there.one woman came in and loved it.she said the work was fresh and something that she hadn’t seen before so it was a hit with her.She talked to us for about 5-10 mins.She was australian.When she asked where we were from and said walsall she thought we were polish which made me laugh.

It’s Showtime

27 Jan

26th January 2010 6.00pm-8.30pm the Private viewing

My first thoughts about a private view was not many people are going to turn up.I was surprised that so many had came.I was madam barmaid for the evening along with 2 others.We ended up with more food than drinks and people were gutted when they found out we were out of wine.There was also a shortage of cups towards the end of the evening.

Overall i thought it was a success and the experience was great 🙂

Places Everyone

Today had to go to the Custard Factory in Birmingham becuause we are holding a show there for 1 week from 26th-31st  January 2010.It’s called “labour and Craftmanship”.Both staff and students will be showing their work to the public.

It was so annoying putting a show togther.Felt like everything was organised but then went pear shaped.I was excited that this was the first time i had ever put my work out in the public.I felt my work would work best near the exterance of the gallery due to what the messages said and would then draw people in to view more.After many many hours or waiting,helping others the show was up and ready.

words of wisdom

20 Jan

Signs are all around us and I feel some people don’t listen to what is being said. They tell us where we are when we are lost. Whether it be what room to go to or directions to a destination. In our lives we always have to follow something in order to get somewhere, signs are the way. I feel art in the world is lost to those who don’t understand or do not wish to know. Art is a big thing yet some wish not to welcome it into their lives due to it being too out there, bold, different. They need a helping hand. I am the helping hand. I want to show them the way and let them experience art for themselves and hopefully it will become a passion as it is mine. Getting art into the world is a challenge and so is getting people to the art itself.

I will share my thoughts with you.

I will tell you where you are!

I will tell you what to do!

You will look!

You will follow!

You will question!

You will!
