Much laughter and tears.
Many old friends :-)

Ye Olde Somewhere

Most ex-printmakers like us seldom see our old work getting the light of day, though of course in many private houses it's probably being enjoyed daily - in fact a buyer of one of my degree show prints from 1991 recently contacted me about buying another print 24 years later - and with a his (slightly) healthier bank balance!

So it was my good fortune to drop by GOMA (Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow) to see 'Ripples in the Pond' a group show including two prints from 1992 by us - that's three years before we even started collaborating as Somewhere!

It's a fascinating show as it's conceived as a conversation between works by women on paper and moving image and was generated by partners Modern Edinburgh Film School, along with LUX Scotland and Glasgow Women’s Library. There is a screening room along with lots of very diverse pieces.

Our two small prints were created at Edinburgh Printmakers Workshop, a wonderful place where we both worked at one point, and they then we acquired by Glasgow City Council (I can't remember how) and until now have lived in a planchest in storage, so it's great to see them again and to know that they have interested someone enough to draw them out into the public eye again.

And on a library table in the show, there is a copy of the lovely 'Guide to Somewhere' produced for last years show in Kettles Yard!

AND the show runs until April 2016 - so no excuses if you are in town!
