Next Exhibitions.....

August 28/29; September 4/5 and 11/12

Another disgraceful lack of blogging - but I have not been idle; pressed, stressed and unorganised - but not idle - though being without my presses for a month or two has meant little to show .
Presses are now up and running again and I am working on a (supposedly) small task of dealing with Who Killed Cock Robin - it does have 14 stanzas however; but I am currently rivetted by it. Hopefully the first 5 images may be ready for our local Arts Festival (ArtWave) here in Lewes; however what response there will be to King Death Fly ( with his little eye ) and maggots and rats, burying beetles and the usual contingent of blood, is another question. Judith is working on her poems of death -so between us you can reckon we are upholding our tradition of epatee-ing something or other.

So - busy months august and september;

Finally - I really enjoyed seeing The Surreal House exhibition at the Barbican Centre yesterday - I really recommend it; leave plenty of time for seeing all the films etc....

I'll try and add some more pics of things soon; I realise the blog has got a bit taken over by the shop in the past months but I am working on various huge projects of my own too - just not ready to share them yet. Official exhbitions at the shop have slowed down over the summer as we are nervous about all the sun on our south side of the street - but they will resume again in the autumn; meanwhile Peter has been filling the space with his wonderful huge posters anyway and we have plenty of new stuff coming and going on tables and the Tom Paine side of things has been given a boost by the tourist season....
and the unveiling of the Tom Paine statue by Marcus Cornish.
