What a fantastic opening night of my What a Liberty! exhibition at the beautiful Hot Tin https://www.the-hot-tin.co.uk/ in Faversham, Kent! Thank you to everyone who came. Thanks to our hosts, Mike and Romana. And thanks Roger Crosby, Karen Glykys (Instagram @karenglykys) and Emma Hill www.emmahill.co.uk for the images in this blog.
The exhibition featured some of my art,
plus some pieces from the other three #LibertyOpen Call winners – Emma Hill, Natasha Coverdale and Catherine Rowe.
It was great that Natasha and Emma could be there too with their families.
Fuelled by The Hot Tin’s cocktail ‘The Drunken Duncan’ (gin, lime , lovage and absinthe) concocted specially for the occasion we talked and danced through the evening to Northern Soul, from DJ Ged ‘Stax Volt’ Kelly.
I got a 5m length of Tana Lawn in green as part of my prize, so I draped that above the bar.
I also bought a metre each of the other 5 fabrics that are now on sale at https://www.libertylondon.com/uk/edits/open-call/ (‘How much!’ As my Dad would say). These were stylishly modelled by the lovely Melanie, Starry and Misty, throughout the evening.
If you weren’t able to pop last night, the exhibition runs until 4th June. Full details here https://duncangrantartist.com/event/exhibition-of-small-towns-to-coincide-with-liberty-london-open-call-launch/ or via ‘Events’on this website.

(Mark 2) A Midsummer Night’s Scream at the Iron Pier Brewery, Gravesend https://www.ironpier.beer/ from 22nd June, featuring music from the Brilliant I Doris https://www.facebook.com/IDoris/and Hippy Tart Heroes https://www.facebook.com/HippyTartHeroes/ a food wagon and of course beer!

Looks absolutely fab!!!
[…] I’d just received some samples of the Liberty London fabric printed with my designs and it was the perfect place to celebrate alongside the other three #LibertyOpenCall winners. Barman, William Ford, designed a cocktail ‘The Drunken Duncan’ (gin, lime, lovage and absinthe) specially for the occasion and we danced the evening away to Northern Soul, from DJ Ged ‘Stax Volt’ Kelly. htpps://m.mixcloud.com/XRAYSOULCLUB/ It was a great night!
