I’ve prepared a couple of blogs over the final number of weeks that I did not in fact publish. I’m not confident why, but I’m heading to just just go with the plan that if I assumed they had been any good, I’d have finished producing and published them!
Now while, I do genuinely have a little something well worth composing about. It is a story of actual neighborhood and collaboration, of crazy concepts, hard work and a lot of love…
About this time las year (wow! It was that extensive back, I just looked it up!!) I was questioned to be aspect of a group exhibition of artists that were being possibly motivated by or worked along with the river Severn. I nearly said no, as I constantly observed to be totally snowed less than with commissions and in no way get any time to make just about anything other than that.
I didn’t say no though…I made the decision to dedicate to accomplishing some thing, that experienced turn out to be just a small outdoors my ease and comfort zone. I joined the Severn Sisters and we set on our first exhibition at 7Q Gallery in Chepstow.
The exhibition seemed great and rather great profits ended up produced, but I want to tell you about our “second” event….Open up House……
It was all the courageous concept of Annie Brennan, who we’ve now all named our “mother superior”. An strategy based about comparable exhibitions that she’d frequented/heard of in city centres – all of the “sisters” putting on an exhibition more than a weekend, in her dwelling. So, soon after some conferences, some snacks and a couple drinks, with no promoting budget and no concept if any individual would arrive, we made the decision to go for it!
Well… I believe the only words to describe this previous weekend are resounding achievement!! There ended up 13 of us involved all jointly, and just by some social media sharing and a little bit of leaflet printing on our property printers, folks did obtain out at about it – masses of individuals in actuality! It just goes to demonstrate that if you place your brain to it, and give your really greatest effort and hard work, anything at all is achievable!
For me although, the actual achievements has been getting this remarkable team of gals (and a single token man of course) that have just been so supportive to each and every other through the organisation and the real occasion. Over the past handful of months, but particularly in the course of the Open Residence by itself, we chatted about so several items and shared so lots of laughs. Theres naturally been hugs, but to be straightforward, it feels like the Severn Sisters are just a person big continual hug. The way that the group just gelled was clearly discovered by our website visitors as one of them assumed that we all lived and labored jointly in Annie’s home!
We’re all different ages, from unique sites and backgrounds and have distinctive views, likes and dislikes, and that’s unquestionably alright. I really feel so privileged to have been questioned to be component of this awesome tiny neighborhood and I simply cannot wait around to start thinking about what we do up coming!
