We’ll Be Back!

I finished my big drawing today at Creative Bubble artspace in the city centre. The art collective I’m in, 15 Hundred Lives, has been using the venue for two days a month for over a year now, this was our 14th event. The three of us, collagist Sylvie Evans, painter Graham Parker and me, use the space to work and develop together as a group and also to let the public come in and see what it is that artists do during the creative process.

We also ask other artists to come in and work with us each month, to build relationships within the local arts community and so the public can see what a wide diversity of arts there is in Swansea. It’s a pretty groovy place. This month the talented painter David Hughes-Jones was our guest and other artists popped in with their work as well, Ann Lucas with her gorgeous needle-felted 3D forms and Melanie Ezra with her latest collage creation.

This will be the very last event at Creative Bubble. It has been leased by the University of Wales Trinity St. Davids (aka the art college) and the lease ends now! BUT they’ve taken out a lease on a bigger building right across the street which opens next month. And we’ll be back!
