I had a nice experience last week - hanging my first solo exhibition at Cletwr Cafe near Machynlleth. It's a lovely purpose built cafe/community space with a small gallery. Getting everything ready for it was more work than I expected: not just making work but framing, labelling, pricing etc. I had hoped to make a lot of new work but it ended up by necessity being a (very early) retrospective of lino prints from the last few years. Despite this, it was really satisfying and a big moment for me to step back and see my work displayed together, and I was prouder of it than I expected.
Cletwr Exhibition runs from 26th may until 26th June at Cletwr Cafe, Tre'r Ddol.
