Curatorship, and other musings

A month ago, I thought I was just showing at the Stone Church. Now, I am curating there, and it has evolved into a second, rather full-time job, on top of my art. And, my regular full-time job. That’s fine by me.

Fascinating business. I posted a few “calls” over the course of the last three weeks, but the last three days have yielded some very good submissions. I was beginning to get worried that I would be showing just friends-not the point! Maybe it’s because it is winter, the holidays…

So, it appears that I should be able to make the Stone Church a viable art venue. I will be visiting a studio on Thursday, and one next week . Two new openings are on my calendar, as studio visits. I have invited an artist from Long Island to ship work up for March, since my friend Duncan, who has cancer and is undergoing treatment, has bowed out. I am trying to talk him back into the ring, and I own one of his paintings that I will show for him, if he can’t get anything else down here.

So, can I turn the town of Newmarket into an art destination. With the help of my friend Malynda at the Gatehouse Gallery in Tamworth, it just might happen! More to follow!

And, in the meantime, I have a new series of paintings that are coming along nicely.
