Diane Young & Rachel Markwick @vaultnailsworth

Here is a glimpse of my half of our new #art show at the Vault pub in #Nailsworth (opposite the Clock along from Morrisons).  Pop in after Midday to late evening to take a look at our work hanging upstairs on those lovely blue walls.  The exhibition is running until after Christmas.

#Art for Art’s Sake

Sometimes, or maybe even often, I produce pieces of work and dismiss them.  I don’t mean to, I do not think hard about this at all, it just happens.  These pieces surface at times, perhaps when an exhibition is about to begin and I start gathering things together.

My “Stepping Crane” is such a piece, having been exhibited at the Amberley Inn on our “Fish and Ships” PV night and I am pleased to say it is shortly on its’ way to a new home.

“Fish and Ships” is the title of my shared exhibition with stamp collage artist Rachel Markwick currently on at the Amberley Inn Stroud until the 30th October 2017.We have been lucky enough to have sold some pictures already; this one of mine was sold today.

Balancing Act

Currently the ponies painting is a work in progress, it would be great to think I will finish it soon and that (fingers crossed) a space might be made to hang it.
