MoMac show in Gloucester

My work was recently selected by curators Roberta Moore and Lisa MacKenzie, for a MoMac pop up show in Gloucester.

It was really exciting to be involved in such a big exhibition, I would have loved to have gone! But the exhibition was only on for two days and coincided with my solo show.  Roberta has just kindly sent me some images, afew of which are posted here.  You can also follow the link to view a full slide show of the exhibition.


There were several Debut Contemporary artists in the exhibition, including Chantal Powell, Tahnee Lonsdale, Patrick Colhoun, Miss Annabelle Dee, Rosie Emerson and Estelle Grandidier.  Other artists in the show include Freya Douglas Morris, Stuart Semple and Paul Robinson.

Some of the wooden panels from my assemblage: 'The Future is unwritten' 

Not sure who these paintings are by but they look quite amazing!

Afew pics from the charity auction at Debut Contemporary.  All of these images are courtesy of Debut Contemporary and can be seen as part of the full set on their flickr stream.

The aim of the auction was to raise funds for the Jennie and Jessie Gunhammer Lupus trust, over 10,000 was raised which will help to facilitate the first ever walk in clinic at St Thomas's hospital.

All of the Debut Contemporary artists donated works for the auction.  I was really pleased when my 'Door of Opportunity' print sold, it was nerve wracking being in the room whilst my work was being auctioned!  But bidding happened...thank god!!!! and it sold for a good price - all of which is going to the trust.

Hugh Edmeades of Christies was the auctioneer, here he is with my print!

Art Sale photos

So far The Art sale/auction has been a big success!!!  It was a really good opening night with lots of bids placed into the box, and a steady stream of people throughout the weekend.  

Bids have yet to be counted and bidding doesn't officially finish until midnight tonight (2 hours to go!!).  I've had a few sneaky peaks in the box, but I'm trying to do it properly and wait to look through all the bids tomorrow morning once the auction has officially finished.

Its brilliant to have such a positive response to the exhibition and the concept of the show, thankyou so much to everyone who came along over the weekend!  Afew of my prints have now sold out, lots of catalogues sold, the remaining ones will be available to buy through my website soon.

Please do get in touch if you are reading this before midnight on Sunday and would like to place a bid!

Below are a selection of pics from the show, courtesy of Alex Carlisle.  More pics to be uploaded to Facebook and Flickr soon!

Art Sale featured in local newspaper

There is only a few days to go until the big Art Sale and auction....!!!!  

I am nervous but excited, and also manically busy trying to get all the last minute things done!  The printed catalogues arrived the other day and they look really good.  I decided I wanted to bind them myself with red ribbon....this is taking AGES, and perhaps wasn't the most time efficient decision to make!  But I think it will be worth it in the end, I'll be posting pics of them soon.

I was also really pleased to discover that the local newspaper, The Courier has written a lovely feature about the auction.

If you would like any further information about the Art Sale and auction taking place on Friday of this week please email me at tinseledwards@hotmail.co.uk

Also if you scroll further down my blog there is an entry which contains all the relevent info.

Thankyou! x
