Yes, beach hut art in October! And grand beach huts at that, rather colonial in fact. The reason is that this particular piece needs a truly tropical feel as it is entitled 'South Pacific'. This is one of the textile artworks I will be exhibiting at my solo exhibition, 'Show Time' at the Theatre Royal in Plymouth this coming December.
Normally, of course, I would be going autumn crazy as I love this season and the textile creativity it brings. This year though, it's all about working for this exhibition, which I have to say is pure joy, albeit challenging at times!
Each piece will be named after a famous play or musical and boy am I having fun with this concept. There will be colour, humour, history, festivity and more! Something for everyone I hope! It is an artist's dream of an exhibition and I really hope you will be able to view it sometime during December and January.
I am keeping this brand new collection under wraps until the big opening but It seems only fair to give you a few sneaky peeks of what's in store! You may be able to guess a title or two from these snippets!
The Theatre Royal is a wonderful venue for art exhibitions. A large bright space with beautiful big walls and there's always such a vibrant happy buzz around the place, especially at christmas time! I can't wait to reveal what I've been working on these past few months!
The show opens on the 8th December and runs until 25th January. I will be posting more information over the coming weeks. Please keep a look out!
