Kettering bound, I collected my work from the Alfred East Gallery and combined it with gathering pieces from other artists for the exhibition next week at LCB Depot Gallery. Tucking in lovely soft vessels from Carole Miles, headed out to meet Sophie Cullinan for the first time to get her 'inflatable' work. Look forward to opening that up. Quick peek tells me that's pretty safe!
Hanging about between meets, I was rather spoilt for choice. I don't completely deride Costa and Starbucks, coffee's well disguised but it's better than dishwater. But two cafes that didn't bear that name?! Java java cafe or Kafe Bloc, and new vintage one opening very soon at Lollyrocket. What's going on in Kettering? For convenience and curiosity Kafe Bloc won - what a pleasant surprise - a cafe with character! We need something like this in Northampton town too, please.
The day ended with an interesting textural piece from Melanie King, student at Northampton Uni. Now tired and in great need of sleep, but I'm enjoying this.
