THE CURATOR’S EGG

  The new exhibition at A Galeria Secreta is, in the main, excellent.   If people knew where it was, they would flock. As it is, views are very private. If you want a private view bring your own wine and glasses … oh and some cheese, I like cheese. Contact me for details.

THINKING AHEAD … again

  I was talking to the voices in my head and one of them came up with a brilliant idea … merchandising for my next exhibition to help with costs! Consequently I’ve gone into intense production.     There will be two products for sale, both in limited edition runs and all individually monogrammed. Minimum […]

TIME FOR A BREAK

  Ok, I’m pretty sure I’m organised for Coastal Currents Open Studios 2017. It starts the day after tomorrow! Details can be found by clicking *here* – studio 69 on page 94. I’m a tad loose endish now. I know, I’m fascinated by numbers, let’s have a little Google. 94 then …   … oh, […]

THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM

A small intermission before Coastal Currents Open Studios 2017 kicks into action in just over a week. The East of Hastings section will be of particular interest.   This is Sean Sheep, one of the many voices in my head. Sit back and relax.

A PRACTICAL GUIDE …

  … that will help you enjoy the Open Studios at this year’s Coastal Currents Arts Festival.     I know many of you will be concerned about how tall the artists will be who are exhibiting their work this year. The following practical hints might be of help when visiting their studios. 1. If […]

COASTAL CURRENTS ARTS FESTIVAL 2017

  Once again it’s open studio season in the Hastings area when people are allowed to shoot artists.     When you’ve taken your pictures you will have the opportunity to watch the artists in their natural environment. Watch some flinging materials around like spoilt children and others who are more precise carefully balancing ‘stuff’ that […]

A SNIPPET OF MY DAY

  As you can see I’ve been cutting the hedges at the Cliff Top Residence. This is real altfact photo of the garden. I decided to have a shower afterwards as I was covered in clippings. “Oh, how did that get there?” and “And there!?! It’s not possible.” and “Nobody will believe that.” Finally I […]

IMMORTALITY

I suspect that many artists hope for immortality. They produce their stuff and guard and cherish and record in photographic form and use materials that will outlive them in the vain hope that what they have made will be appreciated, loved and admired forever. Most will be disappointed but they won’t know it because they’re […]
