I moved to Lewes about 3 years ago.
I would welcome some advice on how to find a display
space, in or near the centre of town, for the Art Wave exhibition.
I've written and illustrated over 50 children's books
over the past 30 years, so have hundreds of
original artworks stashed under my bed.
Just thought it might be nice for some of them
to see the light of day.

Art Wave happens in people's own homes. So use your own dwelling to display your work and invite the public to view.

I don't live in the town centre.
Last year we visited lots of Lewes displays.
The town centre sites were buzzin'.
Those in , say, Wallands, were empty, apart from us,
and the owners had had very few visits.

How about asking a shop like Bag of Books? Or the library? Anything that encourages children to visit either of these places and read is a good thing.

I'd get in touch with art wave organisers. If they are no help approach people/shops who opened in last year's shows - details will be in last years brochure.

Perhaps you could ask in some high street shops. Having seen your work I'm sure someone would be pleased to show some of your work that would encourage a visit to your home. Maybe I could provide a portmanteau?

Are you famous?
Thought not.
Doubt if anyone would be interested in your old tat especially this lot on here who are in thrall to celebrity

Just Googled and found you illustrated one of my son's favourite books when he was very much younger. "No! Said Joe". (If you haven't guessed, my son's name is Joe).
Good Luck.

Thanks for all your useful suggestions.
I shall follow them up, and hopefully have a show.

@Basil Sorry Basil, but you are mistaken. There is absolutely nothing wrong with 'in regards', and its use doesn't signify... more
