Heart Felt.

Heart Felt is an exhibition which will take place at Centrespace, Bristol from 19th -24th November. Jan Connett is a Bristol based artist who is putting together a piece of work that explores the feelings surrounding the most powerful events that life brings. Jan is hoping to collect 500 'hearts' and needs about another 200.

She invites people to create a heart from any material - gardeners can use plant material, woodworkers can use wood - to capture a significant moment in life which promoted such a strong emotional response that it will be remembered for ever.

In the exhibition, the hearts will be hung from strings so that they will be visible from all sides. A suggested size is somewhere between 10 and 20cm (4" to 8"). We are asked to write on a luggage label or postcard the story behind our reason for making the heart, and attach it to the heart.

The deadline for her receiving the hearts is mid-October as she then has to photograph and catalogue them for the exhibition.

The hearts shown here are the ones I have just made for her.

Love the hearts Heather. I have one hanging in each room of my house - all made by me many moons ago - jut to remind me that love is the most important thing in the world.
