I will be working on a series of postcards for exhibition in Deal this November plus a small series of 8 page artist books made from a single sheet of A3 paper for a forthcoming December show in Philadelphia.

Art Market – Maidstone

Looking forward to taking part in this year’s Art Market in Maidstone, Saturday 17th September.
https://artmarketme14.wordpress.com/exhibitors/
The Market Hall, Lockmeadow, Barker Road, Maidstone ME16 8LW
Nearest Train Station: Maidstone West

Making Art Work will be returning with the indoor ART MARKET in Maidstone on Saturday the 17th of September 2016, 9am-4pm. Loosely inspired by the success of “The Art Car Boot Fair”, the ART MARKET event will be held in the historic agricultural hall in the heart of the busy market place.

The first Art Market attracted in excess of 1500 visitors with over 85 stalls featuring contemporary artists, who have exhibited nationally and internationally from across Kent and the South East. It’s not surprising that Making Art Work decided to host the event again, after artists confirmed that the event had created the perfect platform to sell work directly, secure commissions and course bookings, and in some cases artists being signed up by galleries, as well as creating great networking opportunities.
