Real Food Talk

The Real Food Store in Exeter hosted an artists reception with talk on 19th August. The group of 15 were full of enthusiasm for the artwork and spellbound by the process of it's execution. People were amazed at the wonders of the North Devon Coast, many regretting that they have experienced so little of it and all vowing to come up soon.
All of the photographs are within North Devon's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the mounted prints were made with support from the AONB Sustainable Development Fund. All prints are archival and limited edition. The large ones are mounted on aluminium and sandwiched under thick perspex which give them a real depth and perspective. The small ones are giclee prints.

I will be leading a camera workshop 'half day Intro to Digital Photography' on Thursday 16th August at the Real Food Cafe - £25
 A 'sit around the table' workshop to get to know your camera better. You'll learn about shutter speeds, aperture, ISO, flash and setting your camera up for optimum quality.

Postcard from Manteo - Opening Reception

The opening reception on Friday 6th July went really well. a crowd of 21 braved the unseasonably wet evening and stay for a good two hours each absorbing the OBX atmosphere.

There was lots of drinking of iced tea, lemonade and Norman Palmer (which is a mixture of the two and a top tip of what's in at the moment in North Carolina where the temperature has soured to 110 degs f). There was also a spread of food likely to be consumed in Manteo; sweet potato cakes, crab dip, corn bread, muffins and pecan cookies to name just the homemade food.

Local photographer, Graham Hobbs, was one of our guests, who had come along to make a photograph for the North Devon Gazette. He stayed about an hour soaking it all in before grouping us all together at one end of the room with as much American and Manteo items as we could grab for the shot.

Later on, about 11pm, we had a Skype video call from Mayor of Manteo, Jamie Daniels. It was great to chat for half an hour with Jamie and the hand full of guest still here. Amongst the conversation was talk of Manteo's July 4th celebrations where Jamie felt compelled to show off some of the paraphernalia worn in the parade.

a Postcard from Manteo

I have a joint installation/exhibition with Sadie Green at Green House my home/studio in Bideford as a part of Art Trek 2012.

The installation of photographs, video, sound, smells and digitally generated art has transformed our home into a sensual experience of Bideford’s twin town in the Outer Banks of North Carolina USA.

The Opening Reception is on Friday 6th July 7pm–10pm where a light fare of North Carolina food can be sampled. The installation continues through the weekends of the 7th/8th and 14th/15th of July 11am-5pm. There’s an illustrated talk at 2pm on each of these days.
You'll find my studio here: Green House, Torridge St, Bideford, Devon
