My exhibition next October at the Bishop's Palace, Wells

As you may know, I am having an exhibition at the Carrefour du Patchwork in Ste Marie aux Mines, France, next September. But if you don't have a chance to come to Alsace to see the show, you can come instead to Wells, Somerset, in October, and see several of the new quilts at my exhibition at the Bishop's Palace.

The Bishop's Palace is a wonderful place, with a moat, beautiful gardens, an arboretum, and sculpture exhibitions in them, so you need to make a day of it!  There is plenty to see in the building too, and a cafe/restaurant.  Wells Cathedral is next to it and that is very much worth a visit too.  They are both in the centre of town, off the Market Place, and there are a number of car parks in town.  The exhibition is on the first floor of the building and there is a chair lift for those who may need it, with a wheel chair available at the top.

I shall be stewarding some days and times; if you want to meet up with me, please get in touch with me in advance to make sure I will be there - I'd love to see you!  Contact me via my website or Facebook.

Cheers!  Alicia

Back online

Hello!  I've been without my computer for a while, but I'm back properly online now.

The flyers are now ready for my various forthcoming exhibitions.  Here is the first one - my exhibition with other artists at Somerset Art Weeks this coming September.

A corner of my sitting room

I am very proud of my recent acquisition of a beautiful textile hanging by Ursula Rauch, now displayed in my sitting room.  I love her work!

Some of my cherished objects are there too:  Rocking Bird by toymaker Tony Mann;  Wobbly Fishes by Jeff Soan;  and Three Brave Travellers and their Guide by papier-mache artist Julie Arkell.  I've had those objects for very many years now...

London by river

Today I went to London to see exhibitions - the Vorticists at Tate Britain, and MirĂ³ at Tate Modern.  To travel from one to the other, the best is to go by boat - quick and easy!

Here are some photos I took from the boat - a different view....

Thanks for looking!
