New Video For Manchester TV

 

As part of a promotional video for the Arts' section of newly created Manchester TV website, Liverpool filmmaker Amy Clarke interviewed me about my work back in December 13 and made a short film about it which can was then shown on the Manchester TV website here. A copy of it can be seen above. The film is very edited down from several hours filming and it was suggested a longer version of the film may possibly be developed some time in the future. It's good to see a new TV website specifically relevant to Manchester.

Moving Worlds Book Cover

Mini Moving Worlds Cover 205
Recently one of my earlier paintings 'Tram Between St. Peter's Square & G.Mex' was used for the cover of Moving Worlds (Vol. 9 No. 2) A Journal of Transcultural Writings.

The Assembly Art Prize

winner 07 Bloxham12%In October 2007 I was invited by The Portico Library and Gallery to be one of the three judges at The Assembly, 11th annual Schools' Exhibition and Art Prize. Information about the event including a list of the eventual prize winners can be found here. Judging the entries wasn't in any way easy and I can honestly say I would have liked to have been able to award a lot more prizes than we as judges were able to, such was the high quality of a lot of the work. Each judge had differing points of view and there was a lot of debate, but I think we struck a fair balance in the end. Featured painting is Self Portrait by Eleanor Savage winner of The Bloxham Charitable Trust Prize.
