Hello. I've been to Hull today, to the Central Library, where a nice young lady helped me with listing my artworks on the Ferens Art Gallery site. I have applied to put these three pictures in the Open Exhibition which starts in February, through to March.
Applying to a gallery is not as easy as you think. The online process is a bit complicated. That's why they were offering assistance to anyone that is not familiar with it. I asked the young lady if anyone else was as hopeless as me. She said someone had actually taken their canvas along with them and she had to use her ipad to photograph it. It says on the instructions not to take your work, but to take photographs of it.
I took my camera with me, but told her I had also put them on my blog. She got the blog on the screen and took them from there. Now I have to wait and see if any are chosen by the judges. They must get hundreds of entries so they have got a job on their hands to pick the ones they want.
I had already had a quick look around the Ferens Gallery when I arrived, the contenders for the Turner Prize are on display. I must say I thought it was all a load of baloney, a lot of it looked like it was made by a childrens playgroup. It didn't make sense to me.
It was dark by the time I came out of the library so I decided to go straight back to the bus station. Luckily a bus arrived within five minutes, but we crawled through the heavy traffic out of Hull. Over the bridge to the quiet roads of North Lincolnshire.
Now I have to do my walk. Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.
