Today I am truly gobsmacked! I have just been accepted as a member of a print group in Toulouse called ESTAMPADURA. Not only do they have a great name, they will hold a small selection of my prints and put me on their website. PLUS, they will point me in the direction of print exhibitions outside my immediate area – in fact, they have already invited me to join two of the shows they are sponsoring in Toulouse, one this May “sur les petits formats” and one in September on the theme of “L’alphabet”. They are also coordinating an open day for their members in May called “MANIFESTAMPE”, which will be promoted on their site. http://www.estampadura.com
The reason I am so pleased, nay GOBSMACKED, is because I have had some small difficulty in the recent past convincing the french art world that my prints might be a teensy weensy bit interesting but ESTAMPADURA are obviously built of sterner stuff. THANK YOU ESTAMPADURA.
So its back to the studio to make some more prints…… watch this space!
