Peak Curator Visit

November 27, 2014

This is not in the right chronological order, but never mind.

In late September I was invited to take part in an exhibition with seven other artists living and working in the Black Mountains area.  The day was initiated by artist Rebecca Spooner as part of her PEAK project to raise the profile of artists from this area. We showed our work in a studio set-up, either our own studio or in borrowed spaces, to a group of visiting curators and art writers from Wales, Bristol, the Midlands, and an Arts Development Officer from the Landmark Trust. The curators were bussed around to the various venues and had an excellent day, as did I. It was good to talk to what I had previously thought of as difficult-to-approach people.  I had some positive feedback and some suggestions of galleries and publications to investigate.
