Catching up with Summertime

Summertime is the time for fun in the sun – right?  It’s also the time for some great art activity and the artists of This ‘Me’ of Mine have been very active.  They’ve also been busy composing their thoughts in several new blogs, see the list below.  Here are the highlights of some of their recent and upcoming activity:

Reside Residency
The Reside Residency is inspired in equal parts by the notions contained within Xavier de Maistre’s ‘Voyage around my Room’ and the founders inability to find a suitable residency for an individual with familial and professional responsibilities.

New Blogs:

Kate Murdoch: Keeping it Going
Sandra Crisp: Work in Progress
Anthony Boswell: ‘Et in Arcadia Ego’ – Beyond Painting


The project is also starting to get some press attention. Anthony’s interview was mentioned in The Arts and Crafts Gazette in June. In July Perrick Senelaer editor of Art Pie invited me to be a contributor and write about This ‘Me’ of Mine. It gives me a unique opportunity to write about the project from a different perspective and I hope will offer further insights into issues surrounding This ‘Me’ of Mine. I have an article coming up for Art Pie on my interview with Shireen Qureshi.  Our interview will be posted here in the next few days,  so watch for that. And last week, @an_artnews mentioned me in a tweet with some other very exciting groups and individuals making a mark on the UK arts scene, I was very honoured. As a result the project has gained some new followers.

So if you are enjoying the developing content, help us spread the word. You can follow the project by clicking on the ‘follow this blog via email‘ button or the ‘follow@thismeofmine‘ button just below the list of tweets. Leave us a comment too, we’d love to chat with you. If you would like to support the project have a look at our BOOKSHOP for books which have inspired the artists of This ‘Me’ of Mine, commissions from book sales go to fund the project.

Thanks very much to everyone who is watching!
