I’ve penned a pair of blogs over the final few weeks that I didn’t in fact publish. I’m not positive why, but I’m going to just go with the plan that if I considered they were any good, I’d have concluded producing and published them!
These days while, I do definitely have anything value crafting about. It’s a tale of genuine community and collaboration, of ridiculous thoughts, difficult perform and a lot of love…
About this time very last 12 months (wow! It was that extensive ago, I just appeared it up!!) I was asked to be part of a team exhibition of artists that ended up either inspired by or worked along with the river Severn. I just about explained no, as I normally noticed to be wholly snowed below with commissions and never ever get any time to make anything at all other than that.
I did not say no though…I made the decision to commit to accomplishing a little something, that had come to be just a minimal outside my convenience zone. I joined the Severn Sisters and we place on our to start with exhibition at 7Q Gallery in Chepstow.
The exhibition seemed fantastic and rather very good gross sales have been created, but I want to notify you about our “second” event….Open up House……
It was all the brave thought of Annie Brennan, who we’ve now all named our “mother superior”. An idea centered around similar exhibitions that she’d frequented/listened to of in metropolis centres – all of the “sisters” putting on an exhibition about a weekend, in her house. So, immediately after some meetings, some treats and a couple beverages, with no marketing spending plan and no concept if any individual would come, we resolved to go for it!
Well… I feel the only words to explain this previous weekend are resounding achievements!! There ended up 13 of us associated all alongside one another, and simply by some social media sharing and a little bit of leaflet printing on our home printers, people today did locate out at about it – masses of individuals in fact! It just goes to demonstrate that if you place your head to it, and give your really finest effort and hard work, anything is achievable!
For me nevertheless, the serious achievements has been acquiring this amazing team of girls (and one token male of course) that have just been so supportive to every other in the course of the organisation and the genuine celebration. Over the previous couple of months, but primarily through the Open Dwelling alone, we chatted about so quite a few issues and shared so numerous laughs. Theres definitely been hugs, but to be trustworthy, it feels like the Severn Sisters are just a person massive continual hug. The way that the team just gelled was definitely recognized by our guests as one particular of them assumed that we all lived and worked collectively in Annie’s household!
We’re all unique ages, from distinctive places and backgrounds and have various views, likes and dislikes, and that is certainly okay. I truly feel so privileged to have been requested to be portion of this astounding little group and I can’t wait to begin thinking about what we do following!
