(sub)Missive private view

The private view was great - lots of people turned upAdd Image
my friend Jane came with her daughter Georgia and friend Kate and son Jamie - it was great to see kids enjoying the work!


this is my bookwork displayed in the lockable gallery vitrines


the response to each set of instructions was very diverse!


My set of instructions to Vivien


Resulted in this response


The cover was cut out and the inside painted gold - it was wonderful!

It is so much fun to get to see these photos. I adore altered books, books made of "stuff" and the creativity of it all. Thanks for this!

extremely interesting - I'm still pathetically stupid about it all, but I love the things you created.......

It looks like a really intriguing and interesting exhibit, and beautifully presented to do the work justice.
All the best with your exhibit.
