After weeks of agonising over framing, and doing battle with wood to make frames with inadequate tools (my toolkit is at Ty Cariad) I finally dropped off my work for the Made in Roath arts festival 2010 to The Gate yesterday. Thankfully the first thing one of the curators did was admire the two frames I'd made, and ask where I'd got them done; phew! (Just ignore the smell of paint and don't look at the back of them!)
I went to take my cards along today, and I have to say that from my brief sneak preview, it's looking vibrant and the quality of the work is really high (and that's only one little part of the bigger picture). The programme looks really interesting and it's going to keep me very busy getting round to seeing enough of it over the weekend. There are just far too many exhibitions, events and workshops to see and do it all, so I will have to be judicious. Our friend Judith is visiting from Somerset, so I shall be judicious with Judith!
The opening night is tomorrow (Friday 15th October) at 6:30pm.
Hope to see you there.
