Landmark Art Autumn Fair 2017

Back again to a favourite venue of mine, the Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington for their Autumn art fair. This time I was selling with other artists not just a specialist textile fair, so I got to show my work to a different audience. There were some jewellery, ceramics and photography stands as well as fine art and mixed media. A good mix of subject matter was present though nature seemed the most popular theme.

As always at this venue, the people were friendly and curious about my techniques, the cyanotypes in particular capturing interest. It’s very important to get feedback on your work, to see how others see it as I get a bit dismissive about my work, seeing it too much without distance can have a negative effect. Having it hung altogether on the wall is invaluable. I certainly noticed that I have too many moons in my work!

It’s great to meet other exhibitors and chat about their experiences selling their work, a good way to learn from others. It was a successful show for me with enquiries afterwards too. This was the only in person show I’m doing for the moment, though I will have some work on show at the studios I’m based at in early December. A chance to have a wee rest!
