A great evening with Hot Bed Press in Cow Lane, Salford - so glad I invested in a Sean O'Rourke original at their print sale - Under the Bed. Also of course was the launch of the 2015 20:20 Print Exchange and I was fascinated to see all our work, created individually and yet cohesively displayed in the cool exhibition space - continues at Hot Bed Press until 18 December and moving on to neo:artists neo:gallery 27 in the Market Place in Bolton in January - don't miss!
A very distinctive and fitting Preview for The Portico Print Fair with mulled wine, live Christmas music and a superb exhibition of works. It was great to meet some of the other artists. Thank you to all who came and made it a very special event. The exhibition runs until 21 December - see The Portico for opening times.

My work is done, well it's in situ, thanks to The Portico Gallery & Exhibitions Organiser, James Moss. Met some of the other artists and saw their fabulous work as it was being hung. Sure it will be very exciting tomorrow, looking forward to it very much!
Seeking out sites of heterotopia in the common landscape; at once familiar but set aside or transitory, disturbing what surrounds them. Re-imagined through analogue photography, projection and printmaking.
