I’ve composed a pair of weblogs in excess of the very last handful of months that I did not actually publish. I’m not certain why, but I’m going to just go with the thought that if I imagined they ended up any great, I’d have completed creating and published them!
Now although, I do truly have something well worth writing about. It is a tale of real group and collaboration, of nuts tips, challenging get the job done and heaps of love…
About this time very last yr (wow! It was that extended in the past, I just looked it up!!) I was requested to be aspect of a team exhibition of artists that were either inspired by or worked together with the river Severn. I practically said no, as I often noticed to be totally snowed under with commissions and hardly ever get any time to make everything other than that.
I did not say no though…I determined to dedicate to executing a thing, that experienced turn out to be just a small outdoors my consolation zone. I joined the Severn Sisters and we set on our initially exhibition at 7Q Gallery in Chepstow.
The exhibition looked wonderful and fairly fantastic gross sales have been designed, but I want to notify you about our “second” event….Open up House……
It was all the brave thought of Annie Brennan, who we have now all named our “mother superior”. An notion primarily based about comparable exhibitions that she’d frequented/listened to of in metropolis centres – all of the “sisters” placing on an exhibition above a weekend, in her residence. So, soon after some meetings, some treats and a couple beverages, with no advertising budget and no strategy if any person would appear, we made the decision to go for it!
Well… I feel the only text to describe this previous weekend are resounding good results!! There have been 13 of us involved all jointly, and only by some social media sharing and a little bit of leaflet printing on our home printers, men and women did discover out at about it – hundreds of persons in point! It just goes to demonstrate that if you set your intellect to it, and give your quite best work, nearly anything is achievable!
For me though, the authentic success has been getting this wonderful group of ladies (and a person token male of course) that have just been so supportive to every single other throughout the organisation and the true function. Around the previous handful of months, but specifically through the Open up Residence itself, we chatted about so several things and shared so many laughs. Theres certainly been hugs, but to be trustworthy, it feels like the Severn Sisters are just one massive continuous hug. The way that the team just gelled was naturally discovered by our people as one particular of them believed that we all lived and worked with each other in Annie’s household!
We’re all unique ages, from diverse destinations and backgrounds and have unique views, likes and dislikes, and which is totally alright. I experience so privileged to have been asked to be element of this amazing minor group and I just can’t wait to start off pondering about what we do next!
