Current installation of my paintings at Joseph Chamberlain Sixth Form College
It’s been so hot today as I’ve been busy at the college I lecture at putting up our annual art department exhibition. It’s always quite an ambitious show for the level I teach at, namely A level and BTEC National Diploma, as we cram three large walls and a long corridor with artwork in a hanging style reminiscent of the Royal Academy summer exhibition. There will be a private view of the exhibition for the students and their parents and staff and governors on Thursday evening. This is all a lead in to our college Arts Festival on Saturday where I will be drawing portraits again amongst many other activities and stalls of art and craft.
I completed some further small ones last week and have had them framed. These seem to complement the larger pieces, as well as being more accessible in price and scale should anyone be interested (!).
I’m excited about it all now. Here are a few photos on this post of them installed at the college.Without realizing it I suddenly realized today that I'm building a whole new body of work. These are not all them either as I've just taken two others to a gallery for a competition.
(I’ve just realized on completing this post how narcissistic it must appear, as I’ve not shared any photos of my students work despite discussing it, only my own! I suppose the blog itself is inevitably a bit narcissistic though. Anyway, I’ll try and remedy this next week….)
