The Art of Wandering – Wakefield Artwalk

Last night was Wakefields latest bi-monthly art walk around various venues across the city. As part of this Unity Works, where I am currently exhibiting opened its doors for the evening.

It’s always a popular event and was well attended despite a few rain showers. The night promised such a diverse range of exhibitions in equally diverse locations ranging from The Hepworth and the cathedral to bars and tiny artists studios.

So after setting up and keeping my fingers crossed that people would come it was a relief to find that the exhibition was a huge success. It was crowded in there! Lots of people came, connections and sales were made. Best of all, visitors experienced the art in person and gave me feedback and this is the most valuable lesson I learnt – that exhibiting your art allows you to have a dialogue with people about the work. You can’t help but learn and grow from this experience.

I am so thankful for Unity Works and the other venues, for hosting Artwalk. The Artwalk is a unique event that I treasure as an opportunity to celebrate art of all kinds in my hometown.  If you haven’t made it out to an Artwalk yet, you really should.
