BHVU Open ’10

I’ll be showing 3 new works from the Landscape of Change series in our 1st Annual Open exhibition at Basket House Village Universe¬† the gallery at our warehouse studio space. Preview night is Thursday 8th July from 6-9pm and the exhibition continues Friday, Saturday and Sunday 12 noon – 5pm. Around 40 artists will be exhibited across painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and photography. We had a great time selecting the show from the many submissions – it was not an easy task.

Meanwhile a slow Spring has given way to weeks of blue skies, warmth and little rain. The grass is drying up and the gardens need watering. Everyone loves summer – but London does always feel a little strange in sweltering heat. Part of the problem for selling the climate change message to Northern Europe is that most people would actually quite like more of this weather. Problem is we can’t cherry pick and leave out the rest of the extreme weather events, chaos in the tropical zone and the fact that we would probably get more warmth combined with more rain, not just glorous endless summer. Still, I can’t deny I’m not enjoying a bit of proper summer this year.
