Tomorrow, Sunday 16th July, I’ll be selling my linocut prints at the Frome Art Car Boot sale, in the Old Cattle Market car park in Frome, from 10am till 4pm. It’s an annual art sale organised by and raising funds for the Black Swan Gallery.
This is a fantastic opportunity to meet over 50 artists, and to buy art direct from the makers.
It is also one of the few occasions this year when you’ll be able to buy my prints without paying a gallery commission. That’s up to a 45% discount. If you are looking for “affordable art”, then this is the place to be.
I recently finished this linocut print of the view through the Retrochoir to the Lady Chapel in Wells Cathedral. It is a 20 x 30cm, five colour, reduction print. I haven’t decided yet how many of the 14 prints will make it into the edition.
In case you are wondering what a retrochoir is, it is just a name for the space between the high altar and the chapel behind it. Wells Cathedral has a particularly beautiful one.
This print will soon be available for sale, on my website and in galleries. At the moment it is still drying. However, it is already available in the form of a greetings card, at the price of £2.50 from the Love From The Artist website.
Many of my prints are now available in the form of greetings cards from a wonderful organisation called “Love from the Artist.” They are a social enterprise, not run for profit, set up to help artists. You can read more about the way they work and their goals, here.
Buying cards from them is a brilliant way to support artists and the arts. Sales of cards might not seem very significant, but they do tend to add up, and can help artists cover the cost of materials. They can make the difference between an artist making a profit and carrying on, or not.
You can see my page and what I hope will be a growing collection of cards on their site. I’ve ordered some of the cards myself and I am really impressed with the quality.
If you happen to run a gallery or shop, particularly in Wells, or elsewhere in Somerset, then you can buy my cards at very competitive retail prices direct from the site.
