Happy place – at Dynamite Art Fair with @susanne.winter 1-3rd April 2022

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.

The Rebchat podcast – Episode 17. Perspectives from Contemporary Painter Kate Scott

I was so lucky to be invited to talk with Cathy Dixon, the lovely host of ‘The Rebchat’, a platform that has conversations with, and shares stories from a wide range of creatives.

We talked about how I came to be an artist, my process, early failures and the pivots that created in my life, early influencers, resilience, redundancy and wellbeing.

It was a lovely opportunity to see what came out with her thoughtful questions.

Happy Days – Exhibiting

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
