"Walking the Gray Area is a collective exhibition curated by Valeria Siemelink and Andrea Wagner, that brings together 20 Latin American and 20 European jewellery makers and artists who ocationally work with jewellery as a medium, into a dialogue about jewellery, global mobility, contemporary identities and its personal and/or collective implications. The curators of Walking the Gray Area, have each selected 20 artists from their respective continents: Latin America and Europe. Each artist has a unique approach to jewellery: different perspectives of art and jewellery, differnt ideas, different interests, different materials and techniques, different countries. But all artists have one thing in common: like the curators themselves, they have experienced the phenomena of global mobility in one or another way: born in one place, lived, studied, worked in another one."
This project looks very exciting. I will enjoy following the journey the artists' make and look forward to seeing what evolves for the exhibition.

Pretty in Purple and Lantern Peppers, grown from seed, avaliable from The real seed company. You can save any of their seeds and grow more next year, as they are not hybrids...so they look great and you get freebies the following year.
I had not visited Sissinghurst so late in the year before. At the moment you can see apples, pears, berries and seed pods.
