I turned on my camera today to find only nine photos from the group art show I was a part of last night. That’s most likely because I was having such a good time and catching up with lots of friends who came to see everything on show.
Held at Burst City, usually a DIY venue where many a punk rock show is held, yesterday was a lot of fun turning the room in to an art gallery. The rain loomed over us day but held off for a few hours, long enough for the show to be a great success. While there was no official premise for the show or the artists involved, the fact that really creative people with obvious talent but fringe cultural tastes were given the chance to show their work was great to be a part of. That’s right, there wasn’t one painting of a vase of flowers to be seen anywhere in the room.
With everyone happy and possibly a little talked out, the night ended with a few snaps of some of some of us and our work…

Here are the works that I had on show, two photographs and nine woodcuts. I made five sales and so really, I’m totally chuffed with how things went.
Seeing as the show was for one night only, I guess I should say that if there’s anything in the above photo that you want to know more about or want to see in person, then let me know here or through an email and I’ll be happy to fill you in!
I have to thank Will who runs Burst City for letting us put the show on and Especially Mikel who’s idea it was to have an art show in the first place and really, made it all happen. I’m hoping this is but the first of more shows of this kind!
