The opening night for my 13th Note show is coming soon. Next Monday in fact. So if you'd like to join me for a wee tipple from 8.30pm on the 1st September, I'd be most joyous to see you. The Note is situated in King Street, Glasgow for those not in the know. I have a natty little Facebook event that you can invite yourselves to if you're not already there. It won't be a late one for me though as I'll be getting up at silly o'clock on Tuesday morning to get to the Prestwick airport because I'm off to the wilds of Catalonia.
My pals Sarah and Chris, who I met during my art adventure in Cyprus in 2006/7, have settled in a little valley near Riba Roja d'Ebre in Catalonia, Spain. Catalonia is fiercely proud of its heritage and has been campaigning, much like Scotland, for independence from the rest of Spain so it will be interesting to see if I get questions about our Referendum. However, I'm not going over there to talk politics, I'm going over to help out and take photos for their wee music and arts festival Riba Rocks happening 5-7th Sept. I missed their inaugural year last year so I was determined not to miss this one. There will be musicians and artists coming from the UK as well as local bands and DJs. I just hope I can do it justice, photographically speaking.
Well, enough of this blethering, better go walk the dog. She's giving me the look. Hasta la vista baby!
The next couple of months will see two new exhibitions for me. Firstly, at Broadcast a new abstract exhibition is up now for two months until the 9th Oct. A bit of a challenge for me as I don't really do abstract but I had fun making two new images. Nice and colourful.
Along side that, for just two weeks from the 1st September, I have another solo exhibition in the 13th Note bar in King Street, Glasgow. Opening night will be on Monday 1st September from 8.30pm so look out for the FB event page coming soon. Won't be a late one for me though as I'll be jetting off to Spain the next day to be designated photographer for pals' Riba Rocks Festival. Work and play in one, should be a good one.
