The ‘Art for Life’ auction, supporting the hospital arts project at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton, is now live online at: http://www.artforlife.nhs.uk/art-on-the-block-2014/ . Many artists across the region donate specially made work for their annual charity auction, all of it made on supplied A5 boards. You can bid for a piece online now, then the final auction is at Musgrove Park on May 20th. My piece ‘Votive’ (above) has been a bit of a departure, using some of the paperclay pieces I made for my Nature of Mending work. And now I am working on new small tapestries for Dorset Artweeks (May 24th – June 8th) Open Studios (http://www.dorsetartweeks.co.uk/) also incorporating little shards of paperclay. More on this soon, meanwhile get bidding for Art on the Block! ‘Art for Life’ is special to me as I started the project in the early 1990’s and am so proud of how it has evolved and grown since then.
