Much fun was had making the above photo, I’m the one driving with the massive orange afro. It’s to advertise the 2nd Art Car Bootique which is happening on Sunday 15th April at Chapter in Cardiff and is put together by my family from Something Creatives, who were the life blood behind Cardiff Arts Institute with me. The first Art Car Bootique was one of the best days out I’ve had in the city, even though all I actually bought there was a picture (from SnowSkull) and a T Shirt (from Designer Violence). The Squeaky Hill guys selling funerals were hilarious, all the right people were out, the food was delicious and it was a blazing hot day to boot (forgive the unintentional pun). Here’s the info from the Chapter site:
“Following the success of last year’s event, we’ve teamed up with Something Creatives to do it all over again! In this year of the Diamond Jubilee and London 2012 Olympic Games, we’re celebrating all things British — but with an eccentric Art Car Bootique twist. There’ll be 50 pitches of art, performance, vintage booters and curated pitches. An interactive event with all the fun of the unfair.
So, roll up, roll up — we’re looking for artists, artist-led groups, projects, performers, designers and local crafts people to occupy the few remaining places in our car park.
Selling is not compulsory and proposals should fully outline the exhibition aspect. If you’re selected a small fee of £25 will be requested for your pitch. Please get in touch with email@example.com for full details.
Deadline: 12 noon, Fri 16 March.”
