Auntie Hannah on TV tonight!

well - on Friday last week, the cameras came to Westacres, the old people's home - and interviewed me and auntie Hannah and took loads of footage of the drawings and sculptures.... then we all went off to the preview of the Glasgow Society of Women Artists exhibition at the Kelly Gallery, and they shot me and Auntie Hannah talking and walking, and Alma Wolfson talking about Hannah's contribution to Scottish art.... and it went out this evening at 6.30. I saw it later on tonight on the internet, but had had lots of texts and emails from people who saw it.... it's a great little short piece.... and we have already had three orders for prints by email!
Here's a photo or two of Auntie Hannah at the exhibition...

'who wants to be ordinary?!'

The interview was fab - I've had loads of comments from round the world about how quirky, individual and special auntie Hannah sounded on Wednesday evening.

Today I travelled up to Glasgow in a train with a big sculpture sitting next to me, which is going down to Olympia....to the art fair (if anyone would like a free ticket to Olympia, worth £10, get in touch: I have 20 now...)

what else is new? well, I've got a long list of suggestions of where to place articles about my aunt. If you have any more, tell me!

Radio, TV and Olympia!

To go with Hannah Frank's radio appearance today and Scottish TV appearance coming up on Monday - we've just been invited by Fiona MacSporran to send a couple of sculptures down to the Art Show at Olympia too! Fiona MacSporran has known my aunt for years and was involved in the production of the first edition of the book of my aunt's art (1988). So people in London will be able to see the pieces on the 'Decorative Arts at Doune' stand at Olympia all next week - and then come and talk to me on the Jewish Book Week stand at the Royal National Hotel the following week...

Hannah Frank showing in England too!

As well as the BBC radio appearance tonight - and a longer show planned for Easter Monday too - and TV coming up on Monday.... - there are Hannah Frank prints and sculptures on show currently in Lichfield Library, till the end of the month. Here's a photo...

Auntie Hannah and the BBC

The first interview is going out on Wednesday 23rd February - LATER ON TODAY - in the Arts Show on BBC Radio Scotland - at 6.10 p.m. I'm very excited to see a link to the Hannah Frank website http://www.hannahfrank.org.uk on the BBC Radio Scotland website, so am quickly updating my blog to make it all worth while - I think the website is looking spick and span and I hope lots of new people find us and decide to buy some Hannah Frank prints and cards!

I had a call this morning from Scottish Television - they're going to come out and film Auntie Hannah on Friday morning, and tie it in to the opening of the Glasgow Society of Women Artists new show at the Kelly Gallery, where Auntie Hannah has 3 sculptures - including her favourite, the head of her father Charles Frank - and a signed print of an early drawing, Fairies in a Wood - done when she was 17!

February excitements in the world of Hannah Frank

On 2nd February Clare English came to Westacres to interview Hannah Frank for the BBC Radio Scotland Arts Show.... here's a photo of her having a cup of tea before the interview. Auntie Hannah has a great long term memory and the interview was brilliant... afterwards Clare's comment was 'I've interviewed Tony Blair, and I've interviewed Gorbachev, but you were better!'
