Sunny but breezy day in Cardiff earlier today for the Private View at Boundary Art. Interesting mix of work in 2D and 3D and excellent refreshments provided in the Chinese Tea Garden by Joan. First experience of Chinese tea ceremony for me, a great way to relax and soak up the ambience. Really pleased to have my work hung beautifully in front of faceted ceramics by Kin Leung. If you were unable to get to the Private View, the exhibition runs until 30th April. Gallery open Wednesday to Sunday 11am to 6pm. www.boundaryart.com

Really pleased with how it looks as it gives a great overview of my work including quick links to Vimeo and YouTube videos. The printed Directory will be available in July, but the website is already up and running and looking great. New artists added as they apply so keep checking back.

“In our minds there are many rooms…”

A recent Art Project that I took part in is being organised byTim Iliffe, lead artist. He states ‘In October 2016, in conjunction with MOMA Machynlleth, we were awarded an Arts Council of Wales Award to carry out a project which involves 1000 people in the creation of four installations across North Wales.’ Participants are sent an empty numbered CTNK pill box. ‘The boxes represent the state or contents of our minds at the time of making.       There are no rules! Cut it, paint it or burn it, in fact do anything you like. The returned boxes will be hung at four locations across the region.’

William MacKenzie blog on Society of Women Artists London exhibition 2016

In William MacKenzie’s art blog he wrote a very interesting feature on the SWA annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London. Click on the link below to see the full post.

Reach Final Version

This is what he wrote about my painting titled Reach.                                                              ”Andie Clay’s ’Reach’ is done in the frustratingly unhelpfully described “mixed media”.  I would like to know what.  There is some acrylic in there maybe. I like the movement in this piece with the bird like marks exploding out of the monstrous shape.  Energetic piece.”
