Single Handedly Bringing Cornwall to Berkshire...

This is an Initial (the sort of thing that medieval illuminated manuscripts had at the beginning of chapters, but more modern and monochrome). I designed it for the artist's statement that I wrote to accompany my imminent solo exhibition at a local restaurant...

Our local arts centre (New Greenham Arts near Newbury) has an Indian restaurant conveniently situated in the same building. Not only is the potential there for hungry artists and arts fans to eat their fill at the New Greenham Tandoori, but there is also a dedicated exhibition space, run from the arts centre.

I have been asked to exhibit there. As you might imagine, I jumped at the opportunity. So, on Friday this week, I shall be taking a number of my knife-painted Images of Cornwall along to hang on the restaurant's wall. 

The exhibition will run from 11th July, and the restaurant is open daily between 12 noon - 2pm and 5.30 - 11.30pm, closed Friday lunchtime. I gather that it is perfectly acceptable to wander in just to look at the art as long as they aren't very busy.
