These past few days I have been lucky enough to exhibit my work at CamFest, Camberley's first arts and crafts festival, and not only can I say I exhibited my work but I came away with some fab new friends. The three day festival welcomed hundreds to the free event and it was heartwarming to show my work from Tanzania among so many talented people.
I am proud to say I exhibited with Reem Gallery, an incredibly quirky and modern gallery exhibiting art from internationally recognised and emerging artists. As having a hugely successful gallery Zaid, the gallery director, has curated many exhibitions with collectible artists and this was yet another example of that.
The family event was opened by the mayor who spent two hours chatting to all the exhibitors. There were then free craft workshop events held by a fab artist Becca, who painted air dry clay, made pompoms and painted on bags with the kids. My poor friend got a gift hand painted from me for her new baby boy... it's safe to say I got overexcited with the paint!
I'm very pleased to say I have a new venture back in Tanzania (watch this space) and I met an incredibly lovely women who was so touched by my photos and stories that she actually wants to get involved and help out by donating medical kit (for the new venture) and helping sell my photos (with a donation going to Raleigh International), so that an a brilliant cherry on top of an already lovely event!
Sooner or later I will have a store up on my gallery and the mounted prints will be available to purchase online!
