Art exhibitions are everywhere! in late March I dropped off a couple of pictures and some cards at the Open Door Community Café in Berkahmsted for their Art for Ukraine exhibition in aid of  the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian appeal; the event was so successful that it was extended into May.

I was able to take a look for myself at their Meet the Artist Session on the Saturday of the Bank Holiday weekend. At that point the exhibition had raised around £1500 but it has now ended. Any unsold pieces will be auctioned or made available online.

The first Kimpton Art Show since the pandemic was on that weekend, too - it was good to be part of it.  A huge variety of work including ceramics, glass and sculpture led to record sales.  The exhibition forms part of the Kimpton May Festival, and we spent a happy afternoon looking at the art and watching maypole dancing on the green as we ate a traditional cream tea.

I am still showing work at the Workhouse in Dunstable; their latest exhibition, Landscapes and Layers, runs until 4th June. Looking ahead, amongst other events I'll be taking part in Art on the Common in June and visiting Childwickbury Art Show in July so there's plenty going on - it's a great time for artists and art lovers alike!
