Food & Flint.

If you read our Factoryroad Gallery blog you'll already know all about this.

But if you don't, well, you may or may not know that we built a gallery into the ground floor of our home about 18 months ago. Our latest show was Henry Flint and DJ Food.

It went incredibly well, and everyone involved enjoyed this one a lot - in fact I think it went well beyond any expectations we had.

I'm not going to re-post the extensive blog here, instead if you like you can read it on the original blog:

We were also given a cheek-warming review by Kev himself. His is funnier than ours, and has better pictures. (Although he does use Wordpress, which always did our heads in so we returned to Blogger...)

We host these shows 3-4 times a year, and they provide an outlet for the things that excite us beyond the main job of illustration. We have a manifesto of sorts, which isn't quite yet finalised, but as we put it to someone recently:
'People whose work we love, the well known and not so well known. People we want to work with. We experiment a bit! None of it is for profit (ie: we don't do it to sell artwork and get fat on the proceeds) although we do make a souvenir tea towel for each show (nice household item!) and have sold one or two prints.'

Which just about sums it up!

We have more shows lined up - each is always very different from the last. If you want to stay updated, send an email to gallery@factoryroad.net - or just keep reading the blog.
