Afternoon folks. You'll be pleased to know that our Home, Sweet Home exhibition is now open! Ignoring yesterday's horrible weather we were joined by a few friends (some old, some new) to celebrate our first Mushroom Works / Brick Works group show in a while. The show will be on until Saturday 20th March, so you've plenty of time to plan a trip down to the Ouseburn.

Hello lovely Mushroom followers! We've been thinking about home a lot lately, mainly because that's the theme of our next show, Home, Sweet Home but also because we've been spending a lot more time there, what with all this super cold weather.
We've been talking about it a lot at tea breaks, whether it is actually a physical place or more a an emotional trigger such as a smell, a sound, a monument, a geographical area or a even feeling of belonging. Home is such a personal space and we each have our own special relationship with it.
Whilst home to Bethan and Lara is all about open fires and baking, Sarah B thinks home is more of a concept - it doesn't matter where she is so long as she has a skype connection she feels at home. Lee thinks of home simply as a stop off between his activities and Jim sees it as somewhere to sleep and store belongings.
We'd really like to know what you think of home. We've been asking our twitter followers to join in by marking their tweets with #HomeTweetHome. (Click on the link to see the responses, or even better, join in!) And we've been asking Facebook fans to join in on the event page. You could leave a comment here, it doesn't really matter how you comment, just so long as you do. We're planning to show all the responses during the exhibition and will be asking visitors to join in too so if you don't comment virtually you can do it pop in and throughout the show.
Right better get back to that wallpapering...
Happy Pancake Day BTW!
