Aycliffe Angels research

A couple of days ago I contaced Aycliffe Village Local History Society and have arranged to meet up with them to talk about the history of the Aycliffe Angels.
I'm really excited, I believe there is a lady who was herself an Aycliffe Angel! It will be fantastic to meet her. It's difficult sometimes to realise the real life experiences people had when reading or watching programmes about the Second World War. So it will be a delight to meet and chat to someone with first hand experience. I really can't wait to get started on some visual resources and get some initial sketches down! This is the moment when the exhibition really feels like it has begun it's no longer an idea swilling around in my head but has become a reality! :)

Aycliffe Angels Exhibiton

I've booked gallery space in January 2012 to hold an exhibiton at Greenfield Community & Arts Centre. www.greenfield-arts.co.uk I'm really keen to explore the story of the Aycliffe Angels

www.communigate.co.uk/ne/aycliffeangels/ (image above is from the communigate site) So today I have contacted the communigate team regarding research and gathering of imagery. Over the coming weeks I will be keeping a blog diary of how my artworks & research develop. I'm really excited and have a lot of ideas already. I can already visualise how I think the exhibition will look so it will be really interesting in a years time to reflect back on how much the outcome changed if it changed at all.
