For 2 weeks I have been participating in an exhibition at Othona West Dorset with 4 other artists as part of Dorset Arts Weeks. We had a wonderful 2 weeks with nearly 1000 visitors. If you would like to see a short video of the exhibition do go to the Othona West Dorset website – www.othona-bb.org.uk .
Let me give you a flavour of people’s reactions to the work by copying some of the comments made in our comments book.
‘Best of the exhibitions for Arts Weeks. Good to have mixed media. Very Enjoyable’ M and L from Ruislip Middlesex.
‘An interesting fascinating and thought-provoking exhibition, great to meet and talk to the artists. ‘RB
All the artists had praise for their work. Here are just 2 of the comments people made about my textiles.
‘So appreciate the beauty and dedication in Elizabeth Sayers’ work, what love and patience.’MR
‘Lovely work, especially the textiles have inspired me’ WS
From my point of view as an artist this was a great opportunity to see all my work displayed in a lovely space. It has given me a real sense of where I am now! Added to that I had the pleasure of seeing the reactions of people most of whom did not know me or my work at all, to get their feedback and talk about the work and how I make it.
I now have the opportunity to take stock and see where the work will take me next.
