« Part 2: Ready, Steady, stop er go! Part 3 of Exhibition series no next part

To paraphrase the composer Mussorgsky. (Pictures at an Exhibition)

Here are the promised pics. It is a small exhibition. They are (mostly) small pieces, especially the Little Bess Box.
I’ve not priced anything. I don’t expect in the present financial climate that anything will sell, not for a decent price anyway and I am NOT giving any of my work away to people I don’t know.

There is contact info, people can Email me or leave a name and number I’lll get back to them. I haven’t given my phone number though and no mobile (cell phone) number either. I’m a bit old fashioned but I don’t trust anyone who only gives a mobile number. Anyway I enjoy my privacy and don’t want people yanking my chain at all hours. If they are really interested I’m sure they’ll play ball.

I still have to get some sort of visual key there as to what is what and what its made off. Just been very busy lately, particularly with the cutting board addiction problem. I’m sure you’ll know most of them anyway. If not please ask.

The Exhibition is open until the end of August, for anyone mad enough to come that far to see a cabinet full of small boxes (and a cutting board) and is at the South Molton Museum (its a one horse town you can’t miss it, its in the Guildhall), Devon, England tel. no. 01769 572951.

Anyway enough waffling heres the pics

Awesome Martyn! :)

That collection of triangle boxes is really great. I love it, especially having different colours for the bases. Awesome.

That makes a great display! What do you want to bet someone will ask for a price on the cutting board? One thing I miss in your ‘output’ being displayed is the foursome boxes you sent to four friends that combine into a long rectangular pattern. Maybe you could make another set before the exhibition is over? ;-)

Oh.. one other suggestion. Not to be nit-picky, (I do a lot of editing of other people’s writing, sorry) but how about that typed page stuck up there with thumb tacks being replaced by a font-calligraphy page printed out with centered text on stiff paper and put in a little plate-rack stand behind the works? Or put on the back wall with gummed mounts to set it off the wall for a shadow effect? Use a border, too. Your work deserves a more professional presentation.

Nicely set-up display of your beautiful work Martyn. I love the little chevron box, and I don’t remember seeing it before (don’t worry it’s just senility, or maybe the sawdust, or maybe both). I also liked Barbs idea about a more artistic info sheet. You deserve it!
