Hey...we haven't been in touch.  Just wanted to let everyone know we are hibernating, and taking a small break from all the Papergirl excitement of the summer.

Hope everyone is having a warm and cosy winter.

So, the exhibition was a success!  Thank you to everyone that came to have a look and enjoyed it!  So very happy about that!  Whilst we were cleaning the Looking Glass we found this pretty little piece all tucked away in a corner, and were wondering who left it there?  We love it!


If it belongs to you, get in touch!
And here are some photos from the exhibition!

Post Office

Hello!

Just a quick reminder to make sure that you pay correct postage on your artworks as we've just been notified by our friendly local Post Office that some works have been returned due to underpaid postage (and before anyone asks, they couldn't tell us the names of the senders for privacy reasons).

Please please make sure you check the postage amount and the address or we may not receive your work and that would make us sad...

love love love.

The Guardian.


The art of cycling on film.  An article about bikes and art.  Talking about the longstanding fascination between humans and cycling.
"No other icon in sport or transport has retained such constant or potent significance. The car, once all open road and opportunity, now evokes the dystopia of Jeremy Clarkson and carmageddon . The train has surrendered its Brief Encounter romance to the absurdity of leaves on the line, and the misery of the sweaty commute."
"Speaking to Cyclescreen, writer Rob Penn pointed out that the introduction of the safety bicycle in the 1880s was a revolution not just in transport but society, bringing health, freedom and opportunity to millions. 125 years on, as cycling for work, leisure and health increases, the revolution continues."


We were mentioned as well!!  Phoawwrrrr!  "the bike as catalyst of urban creativity is celebrated in the Papergirl project of Berlin , Manchester and Bristol"
