Dover Arts Development Salon

Yesterday afternoon the DAD salon entitled "Keep Going" took place.
This involved a musical performance by Peter Sheppard Skaerved and Malene Sheppard Skaerved alongside artworks by Clare Smith and myself. The whole event was based on the idea of threads and lines. Peter performed a piece by Philip Glass called "Strung Out" in which the music is taped to the wall and the performer moves along playing violin as he reads the music. He also performed his own compositions and Malene read her poetry along side Peters music. It was fantastic, and of course Clare and I hung our work in the space.
