As you know, I have great fun receiving your books, photographing and cataloguing them, so thanks to you too for letting me have a sneak peak at them before sending them off to Sarah! In this parcel I was delighted to wrap up work from the following artists:
Sandra Winkworth, Fiona Dempster, Jac Balmer, Helen Malone, Rhonda Ayliffe, Terence Uren, Dianne Patmore, Aine Scannell, Kathy Boyle, Barbara Millman, Amanda Watson-Will, Anna Mavromatis, Penny Peckham, Gail Stiffe, Victoria Cowan, Momo, and myself.
And if you're in Group 12 and you're wondering where YOUR copy of my book "A Burning Question" is, the answer is ..."coming soon!" I've almost finished making the edition and hope to get the books out in the post to you within the next week or two.
So what happens if you haven't yet finished your book/s and they weren't included in the first two parcels to Sarah Bodman? Well the answer is this: a) don't worry - you still have a bit of time let to complete your edition; b) please send it to me as soon as you can so that I can photograph and catalogue it for our BAO records and then send it on to Sarah in the UK; and c) it won't be exhibited at UWE, but there may be other opportunities for exhibition in the future.
If you think that you CAN'T finish your book or that you won't be able to participate in this edition at all, PLEASE LET ME KNOW as there may be someone else who would like to take over your title. I completely understand that life gets in the way of art most of the time, so please don't feel bad about it, but it would be really good if you could let me know so that I can reorganise the different groups within Edition Four.
