2020 is proving a difficult year for everyone! For artists such as me, with art galleries closed and arts events cancelled because of the covid-19 pandemic, there has been a huge effect on the showing and selling of art work.
One thing you can see is my virtual open studio created as part of Open Studios Notts 2020. This takes place every May and early June but all of the physical events were cancelled. However, the Open Studios Notts team promoted a series of virtual events instead. For the Upton Studios, which we had planned for the weekend of 30-31 May, each of the three host artists (including myself) created video guides to their studios. We also commissioned a short animated trail guide by Beth Adams and were interviewed about our work by Evie Hoggard, of Radio Newark.
Here is the animated trail guide by Beth Adams, followed by my virtual studio guide and then Evie Hoggard interviewing me for the open studio event:
