I’m pleased to be able to tell you that I’ve been offered a stand as part of the Serpentine Festival next month. I’ll have artwork on display, and a selection of prints and swimming hats to buy, and I’ll be there and very happy to talk to visitors. I’ll be in the marquee, but at some point I’ll make a quick break for the water’s edge too, as I plan to create a picture about the event for afterwards.
Come and see me if you’re attending! Any resulting artwork will appear here and on facebook whenever it’s ready. In the meantime, you can admire the posters, which are not my work, but they are rather classy. Designed to tell you about the benefits of open water swimming, as if we needed telling…
If you want to take part in any of the swims, Entries are still open, but there are only spaces left in the one mile swim so be quick! https://www.swimserpentine.co.uk/
Starting to get stuff ready for Bath Art Fair in less than a fortnight’s time now. These are some more of my ‘mini swimmers’ series – they are only 4 inches square, in watercolour and (mostly) gold leaf.
Come and see me! It’s 12th – 13th May, between Bath and Frome. My work there will be all swimmer paintings, and appropriately it’s only about 8 miles from Vobster, so you could fit in a swim too…
Fellow swimmers: they have some leaflets in the shop at Vobster Quay that will get you in on a two for one (usually £5 entry for one). I also have more leaflets – Clevedon Swimmers I’ll see if I can leave some in The Salthouse. https://www.bathartfair.co.uk/
The Outdoor Swimmer Show is organised by Outdoor Swimmer (previously known as H2Open Magazine) and combines an outdoor swimming expo with a chance to get in the water to test the latest kit or just to enjoy a casual swim. Try on a wet suit or book a swimming holiday and be inspired by our great speakers and guest coaches.
More information about the Show can be found here.
The Outdoor Swimmer Show takes place alongside the Henley Mile and is free to attend. Henley Mile swimmers, their families and supporters are automatically registered. If you are not taking part in one of the Henley Mile swims but would still like to come along to the show, please register here: http://henleyswim.com/events/henley-mile/.
I’ve spent the last couple of days printing and framing: for most of a fortnight from next week, I have an exhibition of my swimming drawings in The Arts Lounge of Burnham-on-Sea’s Princess Theatre. Come and have a look if you are nearby!
The Arts Lounge is open Tuesday to Friday 10am to 3pm and Saturday 10am to 1pm, it is also open when there are any events on at the theatre. For more information please see the Princess Theatre’s Website: www.princesstheatreandartscentre.co.uk
On other exhibition-related matters, I have also booked a stand at the Outdoor Swimmer Show at the Henley Mile, 9th July. More on that later, but in the meantime, some details of the event are on the website http://www.outdoorswimmershow.co.uk/
