Friday 13th October 2017
Should we shudder at Friday 13th? Well 2017’s will never be forgotten. Curator-in-chief Melanie was escorting the ‘Lorenzo il Magnifico’ Lifetime Achievement Award (for having entwined creativity and sustainability as principles inspiring their work)
Winner El Anatsui around the exhibition. There were 460 artists exhibiting and she brought him over to me! I have loved his work virtually for years, saw it first hand at the Vatican Museum, Rome this summer and now have met him in person. It just doesn’t get better than that and I have a selfie to prove it!
I met some amazing people and am truly grateful for the knowledge shared and support given. Particularly wish to think Louise Goblin, sculptor for the advice she gave me and value her support. I feel prepared for my future, am ready to challenge myself and want to learn, share and achieve more.
