I’ve published a pair of weblogs around the previous couple of weeks that I didn’t basically publish. I’m not guaranteed why, but I’m going to just go with the concept that if I considered they ended up any superior, I’d have concluded writing and printed them!
Nowadays nevertheless, I do genuinely have some thing worth producing about. It is a tale of actual community and collaboration, of nuts ideas, tough work and lots of love…
About this time very last 12 months (wow! It was that prolonged ago, I just seemed it up!!) I was requested to be component of a group exhibition of artists that were either impressed by or worked together with the river Severn. I practically mentioned no, as I usually observed to be completely snowed beneath with commissions and never ever get any time to make nearly anything other than that.
I didn’t say no though…I resolved to commit to performing a thing, that had become just a very little outside my consolation zone. I joined the Severn Sisters and we place on our initially exhibition at 7Q Gallery in Chepstow.
The exhibition appeared wonderful and fairly good product sales have been manufactured, but I want to explain to you about our “second” event….Open House……
It was all the courageous thought of Annie Brennan, who we’ve now all named our “mother superior”. An thought dependent all-around very similar exhibitions that she’d frequented/read of in town centres – all of the “sisters” putting on an exhibition more than a weekend, in her house. So, following some conferences, some snacks and a number of drinks, with no promotion spending budget and no strategy if anybody would appear, we made the decision to go for it!
Well… I feel the only terms to describe this past weekend are resounding good results!! There were being 13 of us included all alongside one another, and simply by some social media sharing and a bit of leaflet printing on our dwelling printers, persons did find out at about it – loads of men and women in fact! It just goes to exhibit that if you put your mind to it, and give your extremely greatest effort, just about anything is probable!
For me while, the actual success has been finding this amazing group of girls (and 1 token person of course) that have just been so supportive to just about every other during the organisation and the actual function. Above the previous couple of months, but particularly through the Open Dwelling itself, we chatted about so numerous matters and shared so quite a few laughs. Theres definitely been hugs, but to be honest, it feels like the Severn Sisters are just one particular massive constant hug. The way that the group just gelled was definitely seen by our readers as 1 of them assumed that we all lived and labored jointly in Annie’s dwelling!
We’re all unique ages, from distinct places and backgrounds and have diverse sights, likes and dislikes, and that is definitely ok. I truly feel so privileged to have been questioned to be section of this awesome small neighborhood and I just can’t hold out to start out thinking about what we do up coming!
