Am really pleased to say that along with a group of artists, I am partly responsible for Ginger Moo Gallery in Crawley being awarded a 'Highly Commended' prize by the Big Draw, It's for all of the group activities that went on in October 2009. Everyone worked really hard, especially Rachel & Ian to make every event interesting, fun and creative.
Ginger Moo has brought a great creative space right into the middle of a town not normally renowned for creative output, it has been really well received and proves that creativity and art is relevant and important in peoples' lives. They're doing a great job and need as much support as possible to keep going and continue to give opportunities to artists (like me!) and to develop community projects.
I thoroughly enjoyed working on my Vacant/Engaged project (pictured above along with all other projects featured during The Big Draw @ Ginger Moo) and also a Learning Revolution project with the WRVS. Other very talented artists I had the pleasure of working with and who and brilliantly inventive and lovely: Rachel Cowell, Ian Cowell, Sam Murray, Katie Jean Howell & Tom Forsythe.
