This year for Jumpers and Jazz in July I was asked if I would exhibit my World of Wearableart entries in a shop window on the main street of Warwick for the duration of the festival. Of course I said yes! On tree jumper installation day (the hottest in the history of the festival) I also helped Anna and Fay Cox from womens fashion store AOK Clothing with setting up the WoW display.
The feedback I received from Anna was really positive. Anna said that she ‘wished I could see the look of joy on people’s faces.’
Anna also related to me a story. One of her assistant’s was looking at the tree jumpers along Palmer Street. While stopping to look at one of the entries someone said to her “if you think this is good, you should see the display at AOK!”
Sounds like overall the exhibition was well received. It was certainly a delight to see my work all together for the first time. It was like getting the family together for the first time in a long time.
