PLYMOUTH HOE ART FAIR
April 2015 saw the start of an epic Summer long Art venture, where over 40 local Artists showcased their work every Sunday. The setting; the Colonnade over looking the beautiful seafront of Plymouth Hoe. The master mind behind all of this? Dave Crocker. A man whose passion and excitement was something else. I’ve never met anyone like him before, a true inspiration.
I was fortunate to have been invited by Dave after he saw my work at my first Art Exhibition. It turned out to be one of the most amazing experiences of my life. For me, it was all about the Artists. Dave Crocker brought together the nicest bunch of people. We were all so different, and it was really reflected in the artwork on display. Drawings, paintings, even synchronised swimmers taking to the sea. There was something for everyone here. The wind sometimes decided to try and spoil our fun, a few peoples artwork got blown off the railings, but it didn’t stop us.
My Mum, Sister, Niece and Nephew all came to support me, even my Speech Therapist found the time to come say hello. I was so touched! This made it even more memorable. I displayed 14 drawings in total, including a work in progress of my Yasmine Petty drawing. This was the first time I showed an unfinished drawing in person; it was nice showing the process instead of the finished drawing.
There was even live demonstrations as some of the artists took to painting on easels. I will for the rest of time have nothing but happy memories about my time at the Plymouth Hoe Art Fair. I’m so grateful to have been given the opportunity to be part of it. You can view some photos from the events below.
