As It Comes moves to St Nicholas Arcade

14 02 2011

We’re delighted to say that from Thursday 24th February 2011 the As It Comes artwork will be up in St Nicholas Arcade, in the unit adjacent to Argos.

Drop by to take a look at it if you haven’t already seen Alice’s beautiful work, which depicts the trades and skills of Lancastrian independents and market traders.

Feedback wanted…

12 01 2011

We’re really pleased to say that the artwork is remaining  up in the windows of 18 New Street  until the end of Jan 2011 now. We’re hoping it will then move to a new home in Lancaster, to brighten up another shop window elsewhere!

If you’ve seen the work in Lancaster or been have following  the project online it would be great to hear your thoughts. You can post in response to this, or alternatively go to:

Tell us what you think and we’ll send the first twenty people to reply a free copy of the As It Comes project publication that Alice has created.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts,

Lucy





Sketch and Stories at the Vintage festival

30 11 2010

This Saturday we’ll be hosting a stall at the Vintage and Handmade Market at Storey Gallery in Lancaster from 11am until 6pm. Instead of a financial exchange for one of my drawings (and a brew and piece of cake) I’ll be asking for your memories about independent shops in the city. So bring me a memory and I’ll provide a drawing and some tasty  refreshments.

Also 1pm I’ll also be doing an informal talk about the work and weather permitting we will walk down to see it and talk about Lancaster’s independent traders.

We will also have copies of the project publication and storycubes and some of the large scale drawings made for the project will be for sale.

Directions are here.

Hope to see you there.





As It Comes, publication

Very excited to see the project publication just back from the printers, we will have copies at our story and sketch exchange stall the Vintage and Handmade Festive Market at Storey Gallery this weekend. The publication is a record of the project and will soon also be available as a download. Let us know if you’d like a printed copy. It was created and printed using bookleteer.com





Storycubes

A set of four cubes of drawings and quotes from traders that have been created using bookleteer.com and distributed around Lancaster to find and collect.
