On Tuesday I had my first solo art exhibition opening night. I didn’t officially invite any press, so it was fairly quiet, but enough folk came that I felt reassured by my poster and social media advertising.
I sold two embroidery pieces on the opening night and some zines and merch (there’s badges, bracelets, postcards, and various other things). I read a little bit of poetry, but it wasn’t really the right atmosphere and I felt a little awkward imposing myself audibly on people when I was already subjecting them to my visual art.
Anyway, here’s some photos. The exhibition is on at the Fine Roots Gallery in the basement of the Forest Cafe on 141 Lauriston Place, Edinburgh until October 2. I’m hoping to hitchhike down tomorrow to check on the show and do some filming for Zine There Done That with Fergus.
