New piece nearly finished.

imageThe photo above shows a new picture which I am going to enter into an open show around the public spaces of Haverfordwest. It’s called Breaking Out of the Gallery ( the show , that is ) and is the idea of a young chap called Arthur Brooker. There is a Facebook page of the same name.He wants to have 20 pieces of new art out on display for a month this summer. It’s such a good idea that I offered to help him go through the necessary bureaucracy and so far we have not met a stopper. There will be a selection process and there are three judges, Anne North of Late November Gallery, Arthur and myself. So that’s one vote I can count on then. The pictures have to be a response to Haverfordwest. Mine is called “Haverfordwest of the Future “. What do you you think ?
I had some help from the volunteers at recent beach cleans at Marloes and Porthllisky in getting materials for this picture. Thanks to Ian of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Rangers and Mari of Keep Wales Tidy for allowing me to have first dibs on what was gathered off the beaches.
If you would like to enter this show then please get in touch either via this site or via the Facebook page, Breaking Out of the Gallery.
