Only two galleries?
Updated: 20 May 2019
Life sometimes throws nasty things your way with no logic or invitation – lightening strikes doesn't it. It did it to me, in the form of a very serious illness, despite zero family history, never smoking, not really drinking and having been classed as an 'athelete' in terms of fitness for most of my life to that point. While I spent a great deal of time in hospital over almost two years and several years getting back up after the knock, my art took a back seat and my gallery representation suffered. It dwindled from six to two as a result of changes in ownership and closures.
Bigger and better
You'll be pleased to know, I'm sure, that I'm very much mended now and have been working obsessively to bring my art practice back-up to speed, and also develop it.
Phase one has involved cracking the proverbial whip on myself, walled-up in my artist's garret painting and printmaking, or out in the landscape with paints and brushes braving strange strangers, flies and herds of cows.
Phase two has now come into focus. This means I'm actively seeking representation and exhibition opportunities. I've had two exhibitions this year so far, and am currently seeking additional gallery representation. So if you're a gallery owner/manager, feel free to get in touch.
» CLOSED « Solo Exhibition Courtyard Gallery at Burton Agnes Hall
There's free parking and entry to the gallery and to the lovely cafe in the courtyard for lunch too, whether or not you decide to visit the hall and gardens while you're there. Perhaps pop-in on your way to Bridlington or Flamborough Head.

Success in juried exhibitions
From 2006 to 2013, I entered jury selected shows, called 'Opens', in the region. Including two popular and prestigious annual/bi-annual open submission shows: Ferens Open in Hull and the East Coast Open at Scarborough Art Gallery.
Every time I submitted something, I was selected to be part of the exhibition. This was despite being up against over 500 other artists submitting up to 3 artworks each.
