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

Buxton Dome Exhibition




A selection of my Vickers collection will be exhibited at the University of Derby's Buxton Dome from Wednesday 1st October until Sunday 19th October 2008.

Wirksworth Festival Workshops

Last week I was back at the Parish Rooms in Wirksworth to deliver two days of workshops for school children aged 6-15. I worked once again with the students from Anthony Gell school who participated in the Vickers workshops last summer. Their work was also exhibited at the Parish Rooms throughout the festival.

The Wirksworth Festival 2008

Well this blog has now gone full circle - see the archive entry here (scroll down to 12th September 2007) featuring the Wirksworth Festival. The Caravan Gallery returned again this year and I was invited to exhibit in the Parish Rooms alongside artists Maggie Cullen and Michael Shaw. The weekend art and architecture trail was fantastic - with many people visiting despite the terrible weather conditions. The exhibition in the Parish Rooms continues until Sunday 21st September.

The Caravan Gallery returns to a great reception:
