I’ve penned a couple of blogs in excess of the previous handful of weeks that I did not really publish. I’m not certain why, but I’m going to just go with the plan that if I assumed they were any fantastic, I’d have completed producing and posted them!
Nowadays even though, I do definitely have something worthy of creating about. It is a tale of genuine group and collaboration, of nuts tips, tricky get the job done and plenty of love…
About this time previous calendar year (wow! It was that prolonged back, I just seemed it up!!) I was asked to be section of a group exhibition of artists that were possibly influenced by or labored alongside the river Severn. I practically reported no, as I often witnessed to be absolutely snowed below with commissions and never ever get any time to make anything at all other than that.
I didn’t say no though…I made a decision to dedicate to carrying out some thing, that had grow to be just a small outside the house my convenience zone. I joined the Severn Sisters and we put on our very first exhibition at 7Q Gallery in Chepstow.
The exhibition appeared fantastic and rather excellent product sales were being made, but I want to explain to you about our “second” event….Open House……
It was all the courageous strategy of Annie Brennan, who we’ve now all named our “mother superior”. An notion dependent around very similar exhibitions that she’d frequented/read of in metropolis centres – all of the “sisters” placing on an exhibition around a weekend, in her household. So, after some conferences, some treats and a couple drinks, with no marketing spending plan and no idea if anybody would come, we determined to go for it!
Well… I consider the only words and phrases to explain this past weekend are resounding achievement!! There ended up 13 of us involved all together, and basically by some social media sharing and a bit of leaflet printing on our house printers, people today did discover out at about it – hundreds of people in simple fact! It just goes to display that if you put your head to it, and give your extremely best energy, just about anything is doable!
For me nevertheless, the true good results has been finding this remarkable group of gals (and a person token person of program) that have just been so supportive to just about every other throughout the organisation and the precise event. Around the previous handful of weeks, but primarily all through the Open Household alone, we chatted about so a lot of factors and shared so lots of laughs. Theres definitely been hugs, but to be honest, it feels like the Severn Sisters are just a single huge consistent hug. The way that the group just gelled was definitely noticed by our people as 1 of them thought that we all lived and labored jointly in Annie’s residence!
We’re all diverse ages, from unique spots and backgrounds and have distinctive sights, likes and dislikes, and that’s totally alright. I come to feel so privileged to have been asked to be aspect of this astounding very little local community and I just can’t hold out to start pondering about what we do following!
