Another reason for my supreme tardiness in respect of blogging has been the activities of The Garret, whom you may remember as the scampish ne’er-do-wells who generally get around presenting artworks. This time, we’re working on something a bit spectacular… holding a birthday picnic for Kathleen Garman;
We’ve been tremendously fortunate to have the support of The New Art Gallery Walsall, and even got to assemble our own case of items from the Epstein Archive which is currently on display in one of the Artists Rooms in the Garman Ryan Collection.
We’ll be assembling on the gallery’s terrace at 12 noon and indulging in a variety of artistic and picnicking practices. Then at 3pm we’ll be cutting a birthday cake, toasting Kathleen, and reading out birthday messages. As part of our celebrations we would like to invite you to send Kathleen (or any other special person in your life) a birthday telegram which will not only be read out at the flickernic but displayed online and preserved in a book made by the members of the garret. We also want you to share your first memories of art with us, whether at a gallery, on the street or at a performance, and you can do this in a number of ways:
