Photos of Orientation, at Minerva

There was a Meet The Artist session at Minerva Arts Centre on Sunday. SixandFriends who are currently showing their Orientation Exhibition were there to chat to visitors, and Hilary Beattie gave a demonstration which seemed to go down very well.

Laura snapped this photo of me in front of, Life 5  - Shall I Be Mother, and Life 6 - Still Life (with Orange)

Thanks to everyone at Minerva who looked after us so well. There are some more photos, including some of the wonderful work on show, on the sixandfriends blog (link above) and on Steph's blog here
