Hamptonne success

Back in the land of blogging – after 3 months renovating our first house and little internet access – I’m now back on the internet and making art. I never mentioned the success of the ‘Red dot present Hamptonne’ event in May 2010. The event consisted of a wide range of artists making work that was specific to the site; you had Nick Romeril’s cow prints in the cow shed sitting in each stall, Wayne Audrain’s window drawings that had been specifically tailored to fit the space, Debbie Jeal’s tar flowers blooming in the field and my ‘like flies to flesh’ installation in on of the bedrooms and much more.

The event was a real success and had a real buzz to it. The preview evening was so busy we ran out of glasses for the wine. After the buzz of the preview the show went on to include musicians, poets, artist talks, performance art, tap dancing – a non-stop event with so much to see I found myself running from place to place and loving every minute. It was great to see so many local creative people all in one space – I honestly didn’t want to leave when the event sadly came to an end, but hopefully giving lots of people a fun weekend and a chance to see some local talent.

Hooray a success – the red dot group below celebrating with a yee ha on the Hamptonne cow. See more images from the exhibition here.
