It’s an exciting time as I prepare for my first Photographic Exhibition in a Gallery. Annie at Made in the Marches Gallery has provided me this exciting opportunity. It’s amazing what can happen when you go for a walk into town.
For a while now I have been trying to find the best way to present my images, something different. I wanted to created light-boxes so that they could light up people’s homes. But recently I have realised that my pictures are nature’s lanterns, due to the way the photographs have been taken. No need for the art to have special lighting.
For the first time, my photographs have been printed on fine art archival Giclee paper by Old Forest Arts in Hay-on-Wye. The amazing photographs are vibrant and take me back to that moment when I took them- waiting for the natural light to be just right, that moment of magic where I disappear into my creative world. You can also now buy one of my greetings cards to take away, as four photographs from the exhibition have been printed by Old Forest Arts.
The pictures have been framed in ash wood, stained to a dark brown, with special non-reflective glass, to look like light boxes. Brown Hen Picture Framing in New Radnor have framed them perfectly. I’m excited looking at them and I hope you will be too.
I will be hanging the pictures at Made in the Marches Gallery in Kington, Herefordshire this weekend. They will be up for two months as part of ‘The World of Colour Exhibition,’ so if you are in the area, please do call by. There are so many exciting pieces of art to see.
