Grande Dame Permanent Video Installation!

Ladies & Gentlemen! I am very pleased to announce that my video installation at The St Leonard Public House has been such a success, that the owners have asked to make it permanent! Wowowow!!! My second permanent video installation in the UK! Of course Brighton folk will be familiar with my installation at the Joker Pub – Next the world! ha! Funny, cos it was a last minute idea. I had planned to have projections on the PV night. But using their projector & screen would mean a big wall of work would have to be covered. I toyed with the idea of bringing my own projector and leaving it up for the shows duration, but projectors are fiddly and can be diff to operate. Then it hit me – flat screen telly! I did a post on fb asking if any friends had old ones they wanted to sell. And it just so happened my lovely neighbors and collaborators in couture shoes – The De havilland’s – just happened to have a telly which fit perfectly in my fancy gold frame! Kismet! Yay! So, if you are in the St Leonard vicinity, pop in for a drink & Tune In & Turn On! More amazing news soon! oxo GD

Grande Dame Art on Coastal Currents Official Poster!

Coastal Currents Arts Festival Official 2017 Poster is out & what a pleasant surprise to see my work from Point of Decay Installation in Bottle Alley (Coastal Currents 2015) as a featured image! WOW! WOW! WOW! It’s the black and white columns to the left! Super proud! Yay! The festival is the biggest arts festival in the Hastings/ St Leonards Area which runs from Sept 1 – Oct 2! Really looking forward to the Zeroh installation, they always pull out the stops and were the brains behind Point of Decay. I had originally planned to do an open studio during the month, but then the offer to have my show at The St Leonard Pub came up at the same time, so I did that instead. Friendly reminder – my show – Electric Crazyland opens next week Weds Aug 23rd and should be up for a few months. Going to be a fun PV – I can assure you, so if you are in the area this coming weds – pop down and say hello! New work – including 2 light boxes, plus mad visuals, screen prints, hand painted originals limited editions and more! So see you there! oxo GD
