Saturday 7th July saw the start of a week of the Medway Open Studios Festival, where local artists are throwing their doors open, and welcoming tout le monde into their studios for a stickybeak.
|There I am!|
I was helping Heather Burgess, the festival director, out on Saturday, manning the pop-up gallery at the Deaf Cat Studios on Rochester High Street. It was a lovely start to the weekend, and this is essentially what happened:
- looking at interesting local art
- drinking coffee
- listening to records
- getting attacked by a pigeon of death
- being submitted to an awkward attempt to sell makeup (Why do salespeople do that? It was a gallery, for pete’s sake, is it really appropriate to try and sell me crappy makeup? Is it ever appropriate to try and sell me crappy makeup? I’m going with no.)
- being handed out a flyer that will save my eternal soul from damnation. What a lark.
