On Wednesday 27th September 2017 from 5pm-10pm it was the Artwalk in Wakefield. There was lots to see and I didn’t get round to see it all but for those of you that couldn’t make it, or were busy with your own exhibitions on the night so couldn’t see what everyone else was up to, here are a few pics to give you a taste of what you missed.
First stop was Chantry Chapel for the ceramic exhibition and art fair featuring studio pottery by Linda Bulleyment, Brain Holding and Galea Belinscaia. Next I headed to The Cathedral Centre to see the hand felted and stitched self portraits of artist Helen Riddle.
Then to the Cathedral itself for Patterns of Praise by Grace Love
By the time I came out of the Cathedral the weather had taken a turn for the worse so I made my was through the drizzle up to SNAP Arts in time to hear the artist talk by Roger Gardner of his exhibition Equivalence. This was followed by some poetry readings by Steven B Williams.
Next stop through the rain was The Art House to see The Secret Garden exhibition of photographs by Phil Dabbs plus the work of the graduate artists in residence and solo residency exhibition Nudging Meteors by Gobscure.
Thankfully it was only a quick walk over to Unity Works & Jordans Solicitors to see the work of textile artist Jan Millington and photographer Danny Day.
Then another short walk to the Theatre Royal Wakefield for the Senseless exhibition by EIYIA. “The artist group EIYA show the entrails of their first book, and everything that has been created around it.”
I then headed to Neon Workshops to see Animating Neon by Michael Flechtner. “See the LA artist’s collection of neon headwear, themed around his interest in our use of symbols and language in modern day culture.”
Finally I managed to find Crux to see how the large mural by Jenna Coulthard was coming along.
By now I was looking a bit like a drowned rat and it was past 9pm so I called it a night and went home to get dry.
Sorry to all those that I didn’t get round to seeing, I hope you all had a good evening.
The next Artwalk is Wednesday 29th November 5pm-9pm and the next art adventure for me will be Light Night Leeds on Thursday 5th/Friday 6th October 2017 (next week).

As always, till next time,
