the winter food festival down at leicester market on 21st november

the guildhall christmas craft fair on the 27th & 28th November (see left)

what else has been going on mmm..... ive been making some new work with my good friend stuart. fingers crossed they turn out, they will be lenticular humourous pieces. also been working on one of my photographs to make it 3D all off which should be ready for the above sales!

speaking of sales my studio is now open for consultations, commisions, private views or just a friendly chat over a nice cup of tea or glass of wine hehe so if you would be interested in a visit please don't hesitate to get in touch mail@lozatkinson.co.uk so as well as the online shop you can come and get a more hands on experience. already had a few visitors who seemed to have had a wale of a time so you don't want to miss out!

more exciting news

  • went to the opening of Damien Hirst - Print Maker at the bowes museum in barnard castle and seemed to have caused quite the stir with my turquoise but what an amazing show of some previously unexhibited work, definitely worth a visit.
  • the 'one and other' book which accompanies Antony Gormley's fourth plinth project from last summer, came out last month so having been plinther 1926 i rushed and got a copy. what a marvelous book would look great on any ones coffee table
  • last month went to the opening of the Gerhard Richter exhibition at the new walk museum here in leicester. please make time to go to this - what a fanciful thing to have such a great artists work in leicester and for free! so no excuses! just on a giddy stupid note i met Sir Nicolas Serota while there so that should give you an idea of how important this exhibition is FYI hes the director of the tate so go see it!
  • the lovely Chris and Lisa came to visit and chose a work for the charity auction that will take place during the ball they have been organising. with all the proceeds going to LOROS a local hospice helping terminally ill patients and their families. so lots of luck to them and hope they raise loads for such a great cause - will update you all on how they do when i know!
as i'm sure your eyes are tired by now and i think i've let you know all that's been going down in the world of loz i'll be off.

deliverance in the making

elephant parade london is a conservation campaign that shines a multi-coloured spotlight on the urgent crisis faced by the endangered asian elephant. Brought to you by www.elephantfamily.org, the event will see over 250 brightly painted life-size elephants located over central london this summer 2010.

each decorated by a different artist or celebrity, the elephants will brighten and beautify the city, enhancing every park, street corner and building they grace. running from May to July 2010, this will be london’s biggest outdoor art event on record. with an estimated audience of 25 million, the campaign is aiming to raise £2 million for the asian elephant and benefit 20 UK conservation charities.

for more information about the project please visit www.elephantparadelondon.org
