My midweek post for you now, I saw that a good few people voted their opinion on if to reveal my secret identity soon, but we’ll need a few more of your voices to get a fuller picture! So scroll down three posts and cast yer votes if you haven’t done so yet!
Re the interview clip: The open wound is, yeah, still there, our little interview with John McDwyer is still not post-able here on the site, Claire did so extra well in shooting in very HIGH definition, quality is all after all (!), but the IT guys are scratching their heads at the size of the file now and although haven’t officially surrendered yet, I have to say it doesn’t look too uphill as I am typing right now! BUT what IS happening – the interview is running in a loop on the Laptop in the foyer of The Dock, all the more reason to tag along, have your cuppa in there and listen to it anyway. After that you’ll more than likely buy a ticket for one of the evening shows of United, starting tonight and running through till Saturday. And John McDwyer, after coming out and talking to me about the play and all that, all I can think of is buying you a Magnum Almond to say thanks, you on for that?
And now, finally what I really wanted to tell you! Open Season is upon us once again, meaning everybody and anybody can hand in his or her own pieces of work till the 2nd of December, and the work will be hung and the whole exhibition opened on the evening of the 9th.
And any of you Open Season Artists who is willing to talk to me a bit for here on the blog please let me know and mailto:email@example.com, I’ll be in touch with you shortly! We’d love to give you your 15 minutes of fame, and it won’t ever be in high definition again, I promise! This is the official Dock Info re the Open Season, so if you are interested in seeing your own work on our walls please feel free to pick up a short and sweet submission form at The Dock and get the ball rolling for yourself!
