Melanie has hit the ground running for 2014 with a solo exhibition at Gallery 3, Shrewsbury which continues until March 11th. She is also exhibiting in Swansea at The Cove Arts Café until March 15th. In January she exhibited as part of an international show in Allentown Pennsylvania USA and has more US shows lined up for later in the year in Florida and New York. With seven shows already confirmed for this year it is already proving to be very busy. The latest can be found on her blog at http://melanieezra.blogspot.com/p/cv.html
At The Brunswick, Swansea I have 21 new drawings and etchings in a group show with the 15 Hundred Lives collective, running until March 8th 2014. You can find out more on our Facebook page.
And also with 15 Hundred Lives, an ongoing monthly event called 'Public Pop Up?'. Our next one is on February 14th and 15th from 12.30 - 5.00 at the Creative Bubble shop in Cradock Street, Swansea City Centre. It's called 'LOVE' and you are welcome to come along and see what artists do all day and join in if you want.
I am working on some new tiny block prints based on British wildlife for release in the Spring and doing the basic research for a new series of almost life-size full-length portrait drawings of contemporary artists for a group show later this year.
