The end of August is the start of Lewes's ArtWave Festival with exhibitions all over town.
You can check it out at www.artwavefestival.org
This year my Paddock Printmakers group is exhibiting in the newly named 'Hop Gallery' ( F4 in the ArtWave brochure ) - this used to be the Star Gallery and is situated in the old Star Brewery, now craft workshops, off Fisher street near Lewes Town Hall - where I had my Falcon Bride exhibition last year.
Dates - September 4th - 16thIt's open every day from 10a.m. until 5p.m. and we'll be showing prints - including woodcuts and wood engravings, lino cuts, acrylic drypoints, collagraphs and monoprints, and cards and a 2009 calendar of pubs in Lewes from our hardback publication we made last year called Public House.
We'll also hope to be showing some blocks and tools to illustrate how some of the prints were made.
This year all the wood engravers from my group have had their work accepted by the Society of wood Engravers for their annual exhibition at the Bankside Gallery, which starts I think after 24th september - the Society wanted to make a feature this year of work by classes around the country, so our group were persuaded to enter for the first time.

Meanwhile I am exhibiting work with my good friend Judith Kazantzis at her house
32 St Anne's Crescent, Lewes
on the weekends August 23/24 and 30/31 from 12noon until 6p.m
Judith wrote the poetry for my book 'The Garden of Earthly Delights' and a copy of this will be on display, and also a copy of my first book 'Gawain' ( both sadly all long sold out ). Our prints and paintings will include images from this, some new smaller books I have made up out of the proofs and offcuts of the prints, and some examples of new work in progress.
Judith makes a lot of exciting monoprints and it should be a lively show and an opportunity to show things that are too difficult to exhibit in a gallery.
