Swindon Open Studios 2017 in Photos

Hello,
Today was the last day of the Swindon Open Studios. I really enjoyed taking part this year as I was able to meet some really interesting people and get some good feedback about my work. I also spoke with other artists and learned what they've been up to as well. This year at the library I exhibited with three other artists, it was really interesting to see our work on display together as our styles and subject matter are very different to each other.
Here are some photos of the exhibition hanging in the Corridor Gallery of the Central Library.
Olivia H Frost
My work of course 
Liz Selley
Dona Bradley
Some more artwork on display during the two weekends.
I had cards printed with my artwork on them which were very popular.
 This is me after my first sip of Mocha and ready to get going on some prints.
And here are pieces I worked on while at the library.
I had a little visitor who had a go at making her own mono print.
If you were not able to come to the library and visit us, the exhibition will remain at the library till Wednesday, 20th September. My next project will be ordering more cards of my artwork and finishing up some paintings for my next event-the Commonweal Christmas Market. Stay tuned for more details on that later.
Bye for now.

Solo Exhibition at The Hop Inn, Old Town

Hello,
I am currently exhibiting at The Hop Inn, in Old Town for a month. Here's a link to their Facebook page for more information. If you are in the Swindon area, its well worth a visit.
Here are some photos.







I won't be exhibiting elsewhere till September when I do the Swindon Open Studios. Now that I'm off work I'll be focusing on spending time with my family and in the studio. 
Have a wonderful summer.

WIP and The Wroughton Carnival

Hello,
I know its been a while since I last posted on my blog, so I apologise. I've been really busy with work  and had been sick on and off for the last couple of months so haven't had much time in the studio.
But here is an update on a diptych I started a while back. There is still more work to be done on it, I will wait till it dries a bit more before I add anything else to it.

Also, I wanted to let you know I will have a stall at the Wroughton Carnival this Saturday, 1 July from 12-6m. It will take place at Weir Field and there will be loads of activities for families to enjoy including food, games, live music and a dog show.For more information please go to their website:
So if you are in the area, stop in and say hello. Fingers crossed the weather will cooperate with us. 
Bye for now.

Solo Exhibition at Intel Corporation

Hello,
I just wanted to let you know I'm exhibiting my artwork at Intel Corporation's Art Gallery space for the month of May. It is not open to the public I'm afraid, but have taken photos so you can have a look at what's in the exhibit. 
Thanks go out to Pete, Benoit and Agata for their help and support in setting up the exhibition. I could not have done it without them. If you have any questions regarding the work shown, please email me at carmen@carmenbnorris.com.
Bye for now.
