July has been a very busy month for exhibitions! In my role as project manager at Shutter Hub, I went with founder and creative director Karen Harvey to the opening of 'Because We Can', Shutter Hub's exhibition as part of Festival Pil'ours in Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie, France. Festival Pil'ours is an annual international festival of photography showcasing the work of female-identifying photographers from around the world and it was incredible to be part of it. A full blog will follow on that!
Back in the UK, I'm really pleased to be exhibiting work at the Chelmsford Arts Trail, which runs from Sunday 22 July to Sunday 5th August in Moulsham Street, Chelmsford. There are 26 venues showing the work of 24 artists so do try to see them if you can - there's a great selection of hugely varied work so well worth checking out!
I'm very lucky to have work in two locations, so I thought I'd do quite different things in each:
I'm displaying photographs from my ongoing series 'Home/Work', which documents people who live and work in the same premises, at the Pitman Training Centre. You can see the images at 1 Moulsham Street (the High Street side of Moulsham Street, next to Thomas Cook Travel, overlooking the river - click here for a map). Please pop in to see them - they are open:
Monday 9am - 7:30pm
Tuesday 9am - 4:30pm
Wednesday 9am - 7:30pm
Thursday 9am - 4:30pm
Friday 9am - 12:30pm
Saturday 10am - 1pm
I'm launching my second zine in the 'Amass' series with a display at David John. Incongruous is a collection of the bizarre things I find in gutters while I'm traveling about. Not just litter, but things that intrigue or confuse, pleasingly framed within the lines. The display is in the window so you can see it any time, and copies of the zine are available to buy at David John, or you can order online at Etsy here.
