New Blogsite

As this project draws to an end, so also will this blogsite. I am pleased that I have this comprehensive documentary of my journey over the past 10-months. But fear not, I have started another blog to document what happens from here at: www.nataliedowseart.blogspot.com

A year today

It was a year to the day that I was interviewed for the Vickers Award. It was a nerve-racking trip to Derby. I remember that the weather was really lovely and sunny unlike today.

Eight months (nearly!)

Above the sheds:


I'm nearly eight months into the project, with a further two to follow. The contracts for the exhibition at Derby Museum and Art Gallery have been signed and I am desperately trying to finish as much as possible before the work is photographed for the catalogue in a couple of weeks' time. The exhibition will run from 28th June to the 24th August. So it's all systems go at the moment.
