What a beautiful day! I had to say it just because the opportunity to do so is always so rare. I hope you guys all got a chance to get out and feel the sun for a few seconds.
So yesterday Longlong went to a workshop near Angel called ‘Start-Up Loans Introduction.’ This largely involved sitting around a large table with other representatives from start-up companies and sharing questions and answers about applying for loans. Stuart, a business advisor from Start-Up Direct was one of the main speakers at the event and it was fascinating to listen to him talking about the importance of start-ups in society.
Today was also the final day we are accepting payments for participation in the ‘artFix Experience.’ So, as you can imagine, the majority of the morning was spent on processing these and adding the names to our lists.
Several of our artists have come from Debut Contemporary, an art industry incubator and professional development business as well as an art gallery in Notting Hill founded by Samir Ceric. Samir is a good friend of the artFix London and has supported our project from the beginning. And the work by artists who feature in the gallery is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. The use of colour, shape and form in each of the pieces is really inspirational – exactly the kind of work that artFix is looking for.
Artists who are due to feature in the ‘artFix Experience’ are:
Susana Lopez Fernandez
For more information about these artists and their work please visit http://www.debutcontemporary.com/artists/
Next week be sure to look out for our artFix sweets, flyers and maybe even a surprise performance or two on Oxford Street as the final week before our first event kicks off. Your support so far has been really great. The number of positive e-mails and phone calls we have had about how much people support and appreciate our concept and wish us luck for the future has been overwhelming and given us great confidence in our work.
So don’t stop now! Make sure you come and see the results of all of this hard work on Friday 28th February between 6-8pm. If you can’t stay long it is a great opportunity to experience a 15-minute live performance by talented performers and view a variety of visual artwork – because that’s the point of artFix: to make art more accessible and affordable for the public.
