Twiddle twiddle twiddle. It did need something and yesterday it occurred to me what that was. So here is the revised scarabocchio Gloria et Honore for tonight's "Forward Looking, Looking Back Now" exhibition at TACTIC, curated by Alison Fogarty..I had a preview and I really love what will be in it. Work from the two residency award artists Efgeniya Martirosyan and Sophie Gough and a fab installation from Killian O'Dwyer... excitiiiiinngg!
This is going to be a busy week. My little Scarabocchi are going out into the big world to grace the walls of the city's exhibition spaces.
First up is Wednesday's opening of the Cork Textiles Network exhibition REMIX where my pieces "Side A" and "Side B" will be shown alongside a range of pieces whose techniques and styles are as diverse as the people who make up our membership. I'd really like to thank the CTN team who have worked so hard to keep this voluntary organisation going. I have learnt an inordinate amount of skills and tips from the other members and everyone constantly strives to bring the whole level up while encouraging new practitioners in their first hesitant stitches.
On Thursday is the opening of Tactic's final public exhibition in our current space, Forward Looking, Looking Back Now. I will be showing "Gloria et Honore". Then at the start of December, I will have "Shwang!" at the Affordable Art Christmas Art Exhibition at the CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery. Exciting times!
