Francois Blanchard, the winemaker and subject of our exhibition will be joining us at the preview this Wednesday evening and if this isn’t exciting enough we also have cake! and not just any cake, its one of Lucy’s mum’s infamous fruit cakes!

We are all in Paris until the 26th so get in touch if you would like to meet us.

You can save postage of course by arranging to meet us in Paris! We will be there until 26th November



Things have been pretty quiet around here for several months now, and for good reason – we’ve been really busy.

For example, not long after the previous post we were accepted on ERDF funded training at Teesside University’s DigitalCity, and in December began learning how to set up and run a new WP website with the very patient and multi-talented Steve Thompson.

Steve is also Cultural Ambassador in Teesside for the Independent Republic of Užupis, and in January introduced us to the Minister of Foreign Affairs for Užupis, Tomasz Czepaitis, during his brief visit. I had a visa stamped in my passport, and I’m looking forward to using it sometime.

Anyway, thanks to Steve we now have a spanky new website. We haven’t had much time to play with it yet, so for the moment it’s not much more interesting than the previous site – except it has this integrated blog, which is just what we always wanted!

And things are about to get even busier for Wideyed, as we have an exhibition and an international residency coming up fast… And we’ve some other news too, but hey, let’s spread it out a bit 😉

Back soon!
