I meant to publish the results of the Hodgson Loom Open Art Competition last week so apologies for my tardiness. Whilst there are art related happenings going on in the wings – such as the Hospice Wallaby project, preparation for the Isle of Man Art Society’s Easter Art Exhibition and the Creative Network’s Isle of Man Art Festival at the beginning of May – I haven’t had a chance yet to get to the House of Manannan to see the The Western (IoM) Photographic Society’s 40th Anniversary Exhibition celebrating Peel to take some pics and write up a report on it and I’ve yet to hear what the next exhibitions are at Isle Contemporary (The Isle Gallery) and at The Hodgson Loom Gallery. I’ll hopefully be able to give a fuller update next week.

Thanks to Julia at the Hodgson Loom Gallery for providing all the info and pics.

That’s it for this week. I will hopefully have a more regular news update for you next week.
