This weekend I'm taking part in the ArtHouse 5th Annual Exhibition -
Sat 11th & Sun 12th June 2011.
ArtHouse is an Annual Exhibition of over 40 Artists, in 9 individual houses in the Clarendon Park and Stoneygate areas of Leicester. A great opportunity to take a different kind of walk, the streets are full of interesting buildings and tucked away treasures. I'm exhibiting with Sarah Kirby in the stable / studio at 67 Avenue Extension, a terraced house with a fascinating history, behind large blue doors there is a cobbled courtyard leading to a converted Victorian coaching stabling building.
Sarah's work features lino prints of many landmark buildings in Leicester and I have some mono prints and a selection of bottled jewels inspired by the Held in the Hand Hoard, I made for Leicestershire Museums earlier this year. Jo had a major part to play in the Held in the Hand commissions and you can see the fabulous first handling collection here
