Hare prints by Kerry Buck

With the Earth and Sky exhibition on the horizon I have been making new plates and printing up old stock and have gathered quite a collection of hares. Which begs the question ‘what is the collective noun for hares?’.  Well,  according to Google – a Down, a Drove, a Husk of Hares, a Leash, a Trace, a Trip and a Warren of Hares. I feel quite inspired!

Here is a preview of some of the Hares that will be on show at The Wymondham Arts Centre from the 21st of August. Quite a Husk!

My next exhibition of printmaking and painting.

I am excited to announce that after taking a couple of years out of exhibiting I am back!

Several months ago a colleague of mine tentatively asked me whether I would join her in an exhibition at Wymondham Arts Centre. The reason for the sensitive approach was she knew that my two young boys hadn’t left much time or energy for artistic endeavours. However accepting her invite has been the motivation I needed to squeeze every minute out of my studio time and since then that has been the case. The wonderful lady that dared to ask is Amelia Bowman  a very talented printmaker, pattern designer and persuader! You can see her lovely work by following the link above which will take you to her website and you can also check out her facebook page where you can see videos of Amy hard at work!

We will be joined by the artist blacksmith Toby Winterbourn whose work is based on the flora and fauna of our Norfolk countryside. I am lucky enough to own a 7 foot tall foxglove which has pride of place in our porch and  I can’t wait to see what sculptures he brings along to the show.

Earth and Sky

The title of the Exhibition is Earth and Sky, a theme which developed from my previous exhibitions with the late Elizabeth Mace, my very dear friend.  She was always very supportive and I am sure she would be pleased that the regular Earth and Sky show is back.  The show will run from 21st August to the 2nd October so I hope you will be able to come see us at the centre.

Make sure to check out my blogs for previews of some of the work that will feature in the show and announcements concerning possible workshops.

Keeping the puddle topped up

One of our family jobs is to keep the puddle opposite our house topped up. All manner of wild things use it as a watering hole but perhaps the most delightful are the House Martins who swarm around it. They need the mud to keep their nests securely fixed to the wall and their babies safe, so please if you know of a local puddle which needs some attention grab your watering cans.

Thank you xx
