Just a week away now from our Discover Original Art Fair in Ivinghoe, which means a heady mixture of excitement and mild panic as we try to get everything ready in time.
I know many followers here live far too far away to visit us in person, but if you are near Ivinghoe next weekend, we’d be absolutely delighted to welcome you at our exhibition.
Just in time for summer – or so it seems – we’ve opened our latest Discover Original Art exhibition in Datchworth, Hertfordshire.
I’m still pinching myself, I’m so thrilled to be hanging out with the rest of these brilliant artists.
We’re at the Mardleybury Gallery until 28th June, open Wednesdays to Sundays – and most of us will be demonstrating or explaining our techniques on Thursdays and Sundays over June, so please come along if you’re in the area.
I’m always intrigued by the way artists express themselves through a variety of media. Today I wanted to show you the work of Ali Mesley, who is also exhibiting at our Discover Original Art Fair in November.
Ali is a visual artist, inspired by colour, texture, line and form, who expresses her thoughts and feelings through a whole range of techniques and materials, including textiles, glass, papier-mache and found objects.
Her work is process driven, with all sorts of things inspiring her to create.
Most recently, she’s been exploring her responses to books and colour families.
You can see more of Ali’s work at her website, and if you’re near Ivinghoe on 29th or 30th November, come along and meet the artist herself.
