Finally here, Todmorden Open Studios 2017 (8th, 9th and 10th September, 11am - 5pm)! It's going to be a fabulous weekend with 50 artists showing their work, either in their own homes, studios or in venues around Tod. Brochures are dotted all over town, but you might want to head toward the Todmorden Informations Centre to get one so you can navigate your way round. May I suggest you start in Cornholme and make your way through Todmorden, down to Walsden. Pop in and say hello over a cup of tea!
This year I am showing my work with the very talented Goldsmiths artist, film maker and fellow Cornholme neighbour, Clare Pearl. She paints exquisite works of colour abstract and glorious drips in oil. I am a big fan of her work, so I am very happy to have her on board and showing in my home.
Here is a little bit about my work, ' As a trained Illustrator, the underpinning discipline to harriet's work is drawing and how to work with representation as a strong tool for communication. This year's work at Todmorden Open Studios 2017 represents her enjoyment of this craft. Harriet uses a series of photos, drawings from life and imagination with a splash of subtle humour to get her message across. Most of the work is for sale, however, the exhibition also acts as a portfolio of work for any potential commissions and collaborations (realising your own visual ideas and projects through Harriet).
Harriet's commissions and collaborations have been an eclectic mix of greetings cards, graphic design, posters and portraits. She has also exhibited her work throughout the UK.'
See you at mine :)
