well its open now and thank you to my family and friends who were able to make it , you are the best :)
It was lovely to meet the other artists and I can imagine us working together one day.
My photographs came out very dark :( and that is why I have not posted any of yvonne,susan and rachels work until I get some better ones (which I will soon soon)
The gallery is run to a very professional standard by sean ,rob and sarah (thanks guys)and it was a real pleasure to work with them.

The show is on until febuary 4th and you can find out all the opening times etc here.

Congrats Jane, a lovely mix of stuff and a beautiful way of displaying it too, as usual!
i love how every little thing from the frame to the material to the wildflowers & ephemera is important to the overall feel & feeds the aesthetic of the actual pieces themselves.

hey thank s guys xxx
I am at the scary position now of having to start right at the begining again , with the solo in may (my first )
Like O.M.G ,it,ll never happen , it wont look as strong as this ...on and on and on I go , with a studio coming down with work , I am still trying to find a new way in ....
I am SO glad you like this work , it was the first time it really felt like a body of work ,and it got lucky with two outings to see it in a different setting . I have to say the gallery setting was the kindest to it, although I loved the garage show see: http://janeosullivan.blogspot.com/2010/09/hastings-garage-show-nearly-readyopens.html
Thanks for your comments , they warm me.
