Murder Minutes Quintet & Alban – Shaw Gallery 2013

Art Jazzed Up
The Art Jazzed Up exhibition was a huge success with 80 artists exhibiting 250 artwork on the walls of the Shaw Gallery, Croydon.
It was a mammoth task of organisation so thank you to Alan Carlyon Smith and his team at Trinity School for doing the hang. The part I was most nervous about was the performance, where I drew on 7 large paper canvases while the band of Mike DiRubbo, Duncan Eagles, Max Luthert, Dave Storey and Bill Mudge played on.

Cardboard City Exhibition
I’m currently exhibiting and helping organise the Cardboard City exhibition along London’s Southbank. Every day from the 1st-24th December we’ll be opening the doors on an artists work. We’ve all responded to Stuart Simler call to arms and the theme Social Advent. Its all on the collectconnect website. Link Here.

Album Artwork
I’m working on several album covers at the moment.
The hot one is Max Luthert’s debut which is the early stages.
Catalan pianist Jaume Gispert’s is pretty much in the bag, its my first vinyl and I really appreciate the extra canvas to work on. The group are called 50 On A Daily Trunk.
Also Samuel Eagles artwork is finished too already for release in 2014.
I also completed Lesley Christiane and Kelvin Christiane’s albums in November.

Recovery
I’m currently exhibiting at the Institute of Mental Health (Nottingham) in the exhibition on Recovery. I was able to draw upon my experience as artist-in-residence at  Kingston University and St George’s University’s simulated Mental Health Ward. I’m going back into the Ward in January. The Recovery Exhibition runs until May 2014.  Recovery Exhibition Link

Jazz
I’m keeping busy on the jazz circuit with several gig sketches/reviews to catch up on after the EFG London Jazz Festival. You can see what I’m up to at www.artofjazz.blogspot.com
Work has slowed a little as online artist-in-residence on the Rainlore’s World Website due to the ill health of my mentor Rich Rainlore but I hope to embark on some new adventures as soon as he’s back on form. Rainlore’s World Website

Future
I’m meeting the Wimbledon Poetry Circle this month and hopefully we will putting on an exhibition of Art and Poetry in March 2014 at the Village Hall Trust Gallery (Wimbledon).
We’ve also been given one of the prestigious curatorial slots at next year’s Fringe Arts Bath festival. I believe we’ll be resurrecting the Fab Fridge street art exhibition. More info as soon as I know.
