I am now trying to sort the studio out and make it possible for visitors to have a 'safe' look around while still seeing what really does go on. I am taking part in North Yorkshire Open Studios 2010 over the next two weekends. There will be a huge range of artists taking part and a really interesting variety of venues. Part of me wishes I could actually get out and visit a few of the other artists but I always enjoy welcoming visitors and trying to give them an insight into some of the techniques and materials used in my work.
As well as having work on display and for sale in my own studio I also have a number of pieces included in the exhibition Jewellery: Materials and Making at Whitby Museum. The exhibition was due to close on 20th June but has been extended now and will remain open daily, Tuesday to Sunday, until July 11th.
There will also be a number of pieces in the Inspired by Heritage exhibition at the Mercer Art Gallery, Harrogate. The exhibition is open from 11th June until 18th July, Tuesday to Saturday 10am until 5pm and Sundays 2pm until 5pm. The Mercer Art Gallery is on Swan Road, Harrogate, HG1 2SA.
