So far during October we've had a birthday, been included in an exhibition at Truro Cathedral, organised by St.Petroc's Society, to launch their campaign to 'End Street Homelessness in Cornwall' and we are preparing for an exhibition of our own that will take place at Redwing Gallery, Penzance, between 16th and 29th November.
Janet McEwan joined us again to make a film with Stephen about his painting process and the way it relates to his interest in music. During the day he played his saxophone for us and also completed a painting he's been working on for a whole year. We celebrated the inclusion of 2 of our group's contributions to the latest St.Petroc's Annual Report and ate a deliciously colourful lunch that Lucy made for us. We also decided on titles of our work, which will be in the exhibition due to open at Truro Cathedral on October 11th organised by St.Petroc's and Jayne Howard.
After such a busy few weeks it was a pleasant change to have a quiet, gentle day and lots of help with the washing up!
It's been such a great year of visits to Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens and we are most grateful to Drs Neill and Jane Armstrong for allowing us this pleasure. We have made some interesting work over the months and plan to exhibit these alongside our 'Migration' paintings and four videos in our second exhibition at Redwing Gallery 16th - 29th November (opening event 16th November 5.30pm until 7.30pm). Please save the date!
We had a visit from Jayne Howard who is working with St.Petroc's to put together an exhibition that will take place in various venues throughout Cornwall to raise awareness of a campaign to reduce homelessness in the county. Jayne spent the morning talking with everyone individually about their work and selecting works on paper to be included in the proposed travelling exhibition. We were pleased to be able to share lunch together.
