Art Week Exeter is a go-go! And it turns out that I had a bit more in show than I thought.
The main event (for me) is “Minecraft my home”, part of my “Working with Gold” art programme. The Minecraft St Loyes world went live on 15 May, and is available to download and play online. See the “Working with Gold” website for more details. As well building as Working with Gold Towers, I’ve been subverting the ring road by laying red carpet for pedestrians, and discovering the bones of under Tesco. I’m sharing screenshots on Twitter and Instagram @WorkingwithGold. Please share anything you create with me there.
This Saturday during Art Week, I’m holding a meetup to share our explorations of the world. Drop in any time between 11am and 5pm on Saturday 26 May. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult, and adults might want to be accompanied by an under 16! Again, see the “Working with Gold” website for more.
I’ve had fun making old-style railway posters and postcards for the St Loyes Tourist Board. One of the railway posters is showing in the AWEsome Art Fair, which features one piece of work from each artist involved in Art Week. Another poster is in the window of The Arcade bar in Fore Street as part of Art Around the City.
Finally, “Green|Blue” is back! The mini tears of the Exe river catchment are currently available in the Art Vending Machine in the Phoenix, and in the Art Vending Machine’s box of delights in the AWEsome Art Fair.
I’ve been partnering with Exeter City Futures on “Minecraft my home”. Big thanks to them for their help in creating the St Loyes world. And of course, big thanks to Exeter City Council for funding “Working with Gold”, and all the team at Art Week Exeter.
