Art in the Pen

This weekend saw me travel up to Skipton to exhibit some of my fine art photography at the ‘Art in the Pen’ art show 2008.

Skipton Auction Mart, more commonly used for the sale of livestock, underwent a mini transformation, as artistic swags and finishes were applied to the pens by more than 50 regional artists who were on hand to showcase and sell their work. With everything from Alison Thompson at Art in the Pen 2008paintings and photography to textiles and ceramics, there was unique art to suit all tastes and budgets.

For me, it was an interesting two days. I hadn’t done this particular show before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but as several thousand visitors turned up during the two day event, there was ample opportunity to meet and chat to some very interesting people, including a couple who spotted my fine art print of a Sunset on Bonaire and explained that they are shortly moving out there and this view will be the one that they have from their terrace!

It’s a small world… emphasised by the fact that in the ‘pen’ next to me was a very talented photographer called Jon Scurrah, who specialises in 360 degree panoramic images – whilst chatting we discovered that we had both owned houses on the same street in Leeds within the last decade.

If I met you during the show, thank you for dropping by to check out my site and my other work. If you bought something from me during the show, I hope that you are enjoying your purchase, but either way, if I can be of any help, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
