#6 days until the #exhibition 'Living with #PTSD' opens in #Leicester ...

It's hard to believe that work on this exhibition started nearly seven years ago.  It started with tendrils of smoke floating up to the ether as the pipe dream began ... slowly taking shape, gathering support and momentum ... and it's now at the stage where the work load - carefully managed ... is almost complete in terms of preparation.

The canvases have been printed and stretched and are looking good.  Many thanks to the staff at Grange Print for all their help with that.

Stella Couloutbanis, my project manager, has been working hard at securing other venues for the exhibition as well as helping me with lots of other bits and pieces to ensure I don't get over-stressed.  We finished attaching mirror plates to the last four prints last night!

The poetry boards and captions have been printed and mounted and are looking just right.  All credit to Ian Robinson Design for that. You can email him on ianrobinsondesign (at) tiscali.co.uk if you have titling, or caption needs.

Literature wise, I have today finished uploading the kindle version of the book accompanying the exhibition:  Living with PTSD - Journey of a Veteran.



I'm only getting 25 copies of the paperback in stock ... and I'm hoping that most of them will go on the opening night.  Other copies will be available from Amazon and all good book shops.  The Paperback ISBN: 978-0-9564885-4-1 and costs £9.99.  The title contains all the poetry and photographs used in this exhibition.  Many thanks to the staff at Lightning Source and Nielsen Book Data for pulling out the stops and getting the title ready in time for the opening night.

If you'd like to reserve one of the 25 copies please drop me a line on Facebook or email me (wolf (at) wolf-photography.com).

I've literally just finished chasing up all the agencies that will be having a presence at the exhibition.  So various leaflets for Veterans and civilians regarding PTSD will be available, as will booklets about the basics of Intellectual Property rights.

I've also liaised with Ian Davies at the Leicester Peoples' Photographic Gallery re Thursday and all systems are go for putting up the various partitions that we need to structure the layout for this exhibition.

I guess that's it for the exhibition update for now.

All the best,

Exhibition update ... 31 days to opening night!

We're right on schedule!

I'm finalising the selection of prints today.  I want to insert two pieces from the set called 'Intimacy with Plants' that was funded by the Arts Council England.  I'm hoping to get the 21 prints off to the printer today

Apart from that, the main exhibition board and the poetry boards have been produced and are ready for printing.

Exhibition flyers etc are being sent out and we're now trying to get the press and media interested in the project in the run up to opening night.

If you've read any of the 'Poetry of a Veteran' trilogy - please drop in a quick review to any of these sites:

Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Waterstones or any other retail outlet site that you may have used.  I'm trying to gather all the reviews from around the world and collate them onto my website under the poetry titles pages on http://www.wolf-photography.com/html/books.html.

I'm also working on a Kindle book to accompany the exhibition.  This is mainly for people that support the project but can't get over here to view it.  The good thing is that you can read a Kindle book on other devices (PC, Notebooks etc) with free software, so watch this space for developments.

Please continue to share my posts on 'Facebook' and retweet messages on 'Twitter' as it all helps to raise awareness of the project and the exhibition ... and please do follow this blog!

Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your continued support ... the project couldn't continue with your help.

Regards
