New Galleries

Some weeks ago I took a few days off to approach galleries and get feedback about my current work from the experts that sell it.. The positive outcome is that my work is now being sold through 'The Edge Gallery' in Lancaster and from the beginning of April, 'The Craft Centre and Design Gallery' in the Leeds City Art Gallery buildings. I'm really excited about this as both of the galleries stock a good selection of original prints and know the difference between fine art printmaking and manufactured reproductions.

Inky goodness

A sexy new etching with a rather nifty bit of inky 'rollover'.. 
I've put down my tools this week to start looking for new venues to exhibit. I'm wondering how much this credit crunch lark affects art sales? I think a huge amount of the problem is the reportage of the issue, it has made people panic and spend less, come on people of Britain, buy stuff! 
You see, if you've always been fairly poor, you're still fairly poor so it doesn't really affect my circle of generically creative friends. I hope the art world is still thriving..
