Yes, it is like buses. Nothing for ages and then two come at once.
Well here's my big Double-Decker. :)
Firstly, this Wednesday coming, I am one of four artists to be organising this lovely 'Open Mic' event - a 6 hour music/dance/spoken word/improv/non-improv/knitted art 'happening'.
I'm hoping to facilitate as many folk of all ages and abilities drawing as are performing. A huge bulk of any profit will be shared out amongst five chosen women's charites - Apne Ap, Care, GWL, The Fawcett Society and The Women’s Support Project. You can see more details on our facebook page too. This event is an extension of the huge and beautiful event 'Loop' that was put on for the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day back on the 8th of March. You can also read about that project here. Running alongside is an exhibition of 16 drawings that I drew throughout the events of the original 'Loop', which are available on eBay with 50% profit also going to the women's charities.
Mono, Kings Court, Glasgow, 4-10pm, Wednesday 18th May
Details of where/when is on the poster too.
Then there is an entirely different exhibition in the Arches, Glasgow, officially opening with a free glass of wine on Monday between 6-8pm but don't feel bad if you can't make it, as it's on for a month until the 20th June. It is more specifically about me and the live performances I draw as well as the type of technologies I use to draw them.
You can see more information on the Arches Website and also you can click 'attending' on Facebook (Incidentally, the transcendentally gorgeous Emeralds are playing in the Arches that very same night supported by the John Knox Sex Club (a local favourite of mine) and Small Scale Collisions who I am yet to encounter. I do however also need to mention that Adam Ant is playing the ABC. Childhood crush - c'mon - who didn't??!
