There is nothing like an exhibition to focus attention! Work is being framed, cards are ready but I am still in the studio trying to get new work out and ready for display.
This is all for a really good cause. The 3 Harbours Arts Festival has been going for well over ten years now. It brings community together and showcases not just art and craft but poetry and music and even from time to time food. I used to be part of the main Festival which runs over ten days in the three harbour towns of East Lothian - Port Seton, Cockenzie and Preston Pans, but when I was part of the CIC MADE in East Lothian time pressures mean that I had to give it up. Luckily now that I am pursuing different goals, the fundraisers are held in Haddington and so I can at least be part of that aspect of the Festival.
This event is being held at Rooart Gallery and there are to be twelve contributing artists.
The theme I decided on was winter, hence the Round of Robins and the Sentinel trees. Two of these are development pieces so they will be mounted and put into the browser. This time I have had cards printed off and I used photographs I have taken of East Lothian in winter. Some are very recognisable locations in Haddington but there are abstract images as well.
