It was a big surprise to learn that I’d been nominated for the 2017 Fringe Award for the work I had exhibited during Buxton Art Trail. Sadly I wasn’t able to go to the Awards ceremony which took place on the final day of the Great Dome Art Fair but my certificate has finally caught up with me. So thank you very much Buxton Festival Fringe and congratulations to everyone who either received a nomination or – even better – an award. You can see the full listings here
I confess that, pleased as I was, my default modesty setting had me about to ‘not mention it’ but as OH reminded me, everyone shouts about getting an Oscar nomination, and it kind of is, from a Buxtonian point of view.
