I am very late with this but just in case anyone sees it , that can go, please do.
I exhibited last year at the hunters moon festival and I have to say , it was a highlight of my year. The festival is virtually self funded and  THIS SATURDAY ONLY  1pm -10.30pm you can buy lots of affordable art , half of the price goes to the festival fund.
 Jane,a waif and stray from the tinderbox world will have lots of drawings from 20 euros to 150 euros, lots and lots of 20 euro ones.
It is FREE to go in to see the art and various stalls.
There is a full line up of music and films , which you can see on the events page.
Please let anyone you know , who may like to get some affordable drawings.

Iconic war photography hauntingly reduced to simple, empty lanscapes

'Czech photographer Pavel Maria Smejkal is responsible for this arresting series of images that are completely familiar yet strikingly alien. Taking iconic photographs of moments that have shaped the course of human history (think Iwo Jima, Tiananmen Square and The Grassy Knoll) Pavel removes the human elements from them, leaving nothing but empty, haunting landscapes behind. They offer an eerily prosaic look at the geographical plainness of sites that have been imbued with such enormous importance.'

Doily street art by Smot

I've been seeing these all over my neighbourhood (Ménilmontant, Paris) and thought I would share.
I love the idea.
