My first exhibition, a joint operation with the brilliant Drew Truslove (insta: @drewdrewathing), was a heartening experience. The opening night was so affirming and we sold seven of my artworks straight off the walls! A couple more went during the two weeks we had the Sheffer Gallery (in Darlington, run by the lovely Andrew; definitely keep your eye out for their other shows) and it was just so amazing to have friends, family and total strangers come in, wander around, and enjoy my works.
Quite a few of them will be appearing in a novel called The Flight of Birds, my darling friend Joshua Lobb's long-awaited debut. We're not sure when it's out yet, but it will be worth the wait when it's here. I'll post a reminder to buy it when that happens.
In the meantime, here are some shots of the exhibition, mostly of me hanging my paintings with the invaluable help of my dad, photographer Bob Kersey. And of the cheese. We had a lot of cheese.
