I’ve prepared a couple of weblogs more than the final couple of weeks that I didn’t essentially publish. I’m not positive why, but I’m going to just go with the plan that if I considered they have been any excellent, I’d have completed producing and released them!
Right now nevertheless, I do actually have anything worth producing about. It’s a story of true group and collaboration, of nuts suggestions, tough work and a lot of love…
About this time las calendar year (wow! It was that very long in the past, I just appeared it up!!) I was requested to be part of a group exhibition of artists that had been possibly influenced by or worked along with the river Severn. I almost claimed no, as I always found to be totally snowed under with commissions and never ever get any time to make just about anything other than that.
I did not say no though…I resolved to dedicate to undertaking a little something, that experienced develop into just a tiny outside the house my comfort zone. I joined the Severn Sisters and we set on our very first exhibition at 7Q Gallery in Chepstow.
The exhibition looked fantastic and really good product sales ended up created, but I want to explain to you about our “second” event….Open House……
It was all the courageous concept of Annie Brennan, who we have now all named our “mother superior”. An plan based mostly close to equivalent exhibitions that she’d visited/read of in town centres – all of the “sisters” placing on an exhibition around a weekend, in her dwelling. So, following some conferences, some snacks and a few beverages, with no advertising spending plan and no notion if anybody would occur, we made the decision to go for it!
Well… I think the only text to explain this earlier weekend are resounding achievements!! There have been 13 of us associated all alongside one another, and simply by some social media sharing and a bit of leaflet printing on our property printers, people did locate out at about it – hundreds of men and women in fact! It just goes to clearly show that if you set your head to it, and give your really very best effort, just about anything is probable!
For me although, the real achievements has been locating this awesome team of women (and just one token man of study course) that have just been so supportive to every single other throughout the organisation and the true function. Around the past couple of weeks, but particularly throughout the Open up Dwelling by itself, we chatted about so numerous points and shared so numerous laughs. Theres of course been hugs, but to be straightforward, it feels like the Severn Sisters are just just one major continual hug. The way that the group just gelled was definitely seen by our readers as 1 of them considered that we all lived and worked alongside one another in Annie’s residence!
We’re all distinct ages, from different sites and backgrounds and have diverse views, likes and dislikes, and that is definitely okay. I sense so privileged to have been requested to be portion of this remarkable minor community and I just cannot wait around to commence thinking about what we do up coming!
