It’s been a very busy couple of weeks for Migglet and the Summer Open Art Exhibition in the Arts Quarter at TAAG, Teignmouth in Devon is almost over. If you are nearby, you may wish to pop in and see the collection of work by numerous artists before the exhibition ends tomorrow, Friday 9th August.
There are many gorgeous things to see and buy in there.
I have fallen in love with a stunning piece displayed in the window at TAAG that was created with recycled bicycle wheels and beautiful pieces of coloured stained glass, it has been designed with a garden in mind and those cheerful little bright wheels would spin and dance so merrily in our terraced windy Devon garden overlooking the village! I’m a very tempted Migglet!
For the first time since I started painting, I have exhibited with a theme instead of a mixture of this and that (methinks that has probably reflected my Migglety brain during the past couple of years!?!) ….it has been a real eye opener being focused for once! At last I know where I am heading and that has helped me enormously! BIG phew!!
The Summer Open Exhibition has been a real success for me this year and the highlight was getting a mention on twitter by a complete stranger who had apparently bought three framed prints from my ‘Less is More’ series that day and then taken the time to show me a photograph of them all hanging up on his hall wall that afternoon! I am still blown away by ‘Big Al of Devon’ for his shout out, what a lovely guy, that meant so much to me!
I have exhibited at TAAG during the Summer Open Art Exhibition and also at Christmas time for the last two years and have met so many interesting people there, many of them also artists…….and many others who are really quite ‘normal’! What a helpful bunch they have been from day one and I really enjoy stewarding there, meeting tourists and locals and I have made some truly special friends for life!
I have always loved meeting people and being creative is in my veins, so to be in a place surrounded by both is where I feel I really belong!
I am slowly but surely spreading my Migglety wings and, apart from the necessary occasional flapping and panicking I feel the flightpath is finally clearing, so make way and prepare for a few dodgy landings when I get overexcited or get my beak stuck in a paint pot!!
