dolls and mirrors

For the Summer Gala, the mirrors (that is the mirrors with text from The Lady of Shalott shown previously in this blog) will be installed around the Brayford Pool area, the dressing table with mirror will be a focus point for the installation, upon which to exhibit the doll and related work (which I'm currently working on).

It should link The Lady of Shalott with The Cupboard Project, for which there's a meeting next Tuesday at Grove Tea Rooms on Steep Hill for members of the Lincoln Artist's Network who will be taking part in The Cupboard Project.

I wasn't impressed with the Artist's Market. No one actually bought anything. No one seems to realise that they're getting some nifty fine art for a fraction of the cost it's actually worth! I made the grand profit of £1 for the second one last Sunday, and have now decided that Artist's Markets are not my cup of tea unless promoting LAN activities.
Besides, I was selling work for far less than its market value if it was sold through a gallery or accepted by Illustration agents for publication. I'm going to submit one of the pieces for the AOI Images 34 competition instead!

I did come up with the adaptation of making the mirrors double-sided, with the quotes written backwards one side, and normal the other.
