I am still resting and processing the amazing madness of May – the month that is the most intense for artists in Brighton and Hove Uk.
It sometimes feels like a crazy helter-skelter of deadlines, followed by quietness but mostly I am so proud and happy from all the plans that came to fruition, the connections made and the new friends collectors supporters who flowed towards me, and the amazing artists I exhibited with – and the capacity for open minded appreciation of the Humans who made the effort to visit us in three different venues.
And the people who have come since to the studio to see the work; something I really enjoy – contact me email@example.com to arrange a visit
Couldn’t resist posting this I’ve been updating my website and saw it in my photographs of interiors – owned by a lovely collector who normally chooses much larger pieces – nestling in their study – Sussex Uk ￼
And just letting you know my Instagram account kate_scott_paintings is now safely back with me – apologies again to anybody who received DM messages up until 23rd March – I am very grateful to say all is now well. I am having a slower paced week before moving on to last few weeks of planning for the Artists Open Houses in May.
Here I am standing outside @gallery40 central Brighton, UK, in October 2021. We were about half way through a happy week during the exhibition ‘Elemental’ with the sculptor Jo Delafons.
This shows the easy bit, when you’ve done all the admin, emailing, label printing, hanging, curating , preview planning and you just have to turn up and receive all the lovely visitors and friends and patrons – which makes it all worth while; the connecting is incredible and grateful making.
So I am at the very early stages of planning for this years shows – so far three collaborations two with @artistsopenhouses during Brighton Festival in May , and one later in the year in Storrington, Sussex.
I will be posting as I make progress mainly on my Instagram page @kate_scott_paintings and doing my best to make time for my own practice in the studio while loving the creative process of working with other artists to bring an exhibition together
Let me know if you would like to be invited to the shows when we are ready to send out invites
I have always used recycled and upcycled surfaces to paint some of my work on, so I am really happy to be able to show some of these canvases in December alongside some really fantastic artist and makers who are all working sustainably in their inspirational maverick ways materials and techniques.
I will also be running a mindful collage workshop at the Dynamite Gallery on Sunday 12th December 2.30 – 4.30 pm book through Eventbrite using the link below – I will be using all reclaimed materials except glue and a bit of paint !!
