I'm exhibiting a recent linocut print called 'Choice' at the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society's Annual Members Exhibition at Falmouth Poly this year. The exhibition runs from Tuesday 19th July until Saturday 23rd July 2011. As I'm away I won't get to see the exhibition. If you are in Cornwall and see the show, let me know what you think.

I took my collection of wooden letterpress blocks and large rubber stamp letters and numbers along to the Printmaking and Bookbinding workshops at Nancherrow Hall, St. Just. Some lovely posters and printed books were created.

I took part in A Book of the Night at the Exchange Gallery, Penzance, Cornwall. Over 20 artists, writers and printmakers assembled at 8pm on an evening in May and started work on night/ time themed works.
I originally intended to work until 11pm before catching the last bus home but I got so involved in the project that as 11pm approached I made the decision to carry on working.
I was one of a group of around six who worked all through the night. I was so focused on the monotypes I was working on that I didn't feel tired until I stopped work at 8am.
The tiredness and hunger hit me as soon as I cleaned my last brayer. Luckily I had 2 packets of crumpets( a gift from my daughter) in my bag which were cooked in the gallery's toaster and shared out amongst the starving artists.
I'm looking forward to seeing the digital copy of the book as well as the two handbound copies which are being put together by PZ Conservation.
You can see some photos and a blog of the night here:

I'll be opening my studio to the public as part of Open Studios Cornwall at Krowji in Redruth 28th May - 5th June.
If you like art and craft and love Cornwall this is the time to visit. A very different experience to seeing work in a gallery. You get to chat to artists and craftspeople, see all the interesting and sometimes surprising things they normally hide away in their studios, see their working methods, and come away with a real idea of what it's like to be an artist.
The Open Studios Cornwall Directories and posters are going to be distributed across Cornwall from this week onwards so keep a look out.
