Welcome to our all-too-infrequently updated little blog about goings on at Art Van Go - art suppliers to the stars.

I called into AVG yesterday on my way past after hours.  I mean, I rang the doorbell, I didn't break in or anything!  Not only were Viv and Kevin still there, but Bobby Britnell was there after the first day of her late Summer School.  I took a sneaky photo of the work so far ...
The students did some drawings from a still life, and then added tone and pattern.
They are going to select a small area to make print blocks which will then be printed onto paper, and later fabric before finally being hand stitched.

I also had a look at the current exhibition in the gallery 'Making Stories' which is on now until 20th October.
It includes work from three artists, 
Sue Pegg who combines layered surfaces of handmade paper, wax and plaster with ephemeral themes worked in muted colours with words and stitch.

Hilary Murfin who constructs papier mache vessels, 

(they might not look like vessels, but that's just my photos, I'm afraid!)


Aran Illingworth who makes almost three-dimensional textile appliqued canvases, which focus on the the predicament of women's poverty.

There are still one or two places left on Marian Murphy's workshop this coming Saturday 22nd, making a small stitched album on the theme of "Seashore" - it will make a lovely personal reference source for future projects.
