I received the mail out for the ‘Chapel off Chapel’ -January Dates, in the mail today. I was excited to see they have included one of my paintings and artist statement in an advertisement for the Exhibition in February! It is rewarding to see it in print. The painting was actually sideways but it doesn’t really matter as they are abstract paintings. It has been a long 5 months of preparation and it is starting to feel very real!
There are still a lot of details to take care of before everything is in order. There are 4 paintings to finish and edges to be sealed. All the paintings to be strung correctly for hanging and a catalogue to write up. I have to tend to that mail out list of mine and send the invitations off in about 2-3 weeks. I have about 120 to send by post and another 50 or so email invites requested. I am attending an ‘envelope stuffing’ day at the Gallery for their February mail out, in which i shall include an invitation! They have approx 3,400 on their list! Of course it is any one’s guess who and how many people will come to Opening night. It is all very exciting!
