Met with Melissa Fletcher, one of my brilliant assistant co-ordinators and my creative editor (also an amazing an artist) yesterday for a meeting and to discuss the volunteer offer, as well as to take pictures of the space they have offered. Welcomed warmly by the lovly owner with a nice cup of hot black coffee, super nice having just come out of the rain.
we went ups stairs, i warned Melissa of the excitement, as we entered- Again walking through each room - the potential of the space, in what is visible- for artists - in the city center - is truly overwhelming !!!!
There so much history and small details in each room to be inspired by and in one part of the building, two rooms are suddenly cooler and little bit scary. (My own designs have started, of course for one of these rooms!!!!)
Later we sat downstairs, in the restuarnt and had lunch - both felafel wraps, whilst continuing to discuss plans, co-coordination and deadlines over the next coming months , but only after we discussed art, other events in Leicester, and shared interests of complications and views in the art world!
The waiter was really accommodating and lovely and food was out of this world, really, really fresh and exactly the right amount! Beautiful!
I have very exciting visions of Fridays in the future with the SVA team, food and discussion in art ! A perfect warm, welcoming environment and place for discussion!!
