Happy New Year to all of you. It is only (or already?) the 3rd but I believe we can say this until the middle of January; I am sure there is a rule in someone's book about this.

Today was unfortunately the last day of the fabulous Undercover exhibition at Nexus Art Cafe in the Northern Quarter.

I love Nexus and wish I could spend more time there apart from the occasional meeting and I was totally impressed with this exhibition. There were some wonderful works on display; I wished however there was more information about the artists.

This dear head was one of my favourites. I have been looking for one for a while and if I could would have loved to buy this one. It was created by Laura Mullen, can't wait to see more of her work.

My absolute favourite work however was this window installation. It looked good from the outside but just stunning from the inside. It was created by Annie Harrison and it is sad that this is going to be taken down. I realise certain pieces of art can not remain forever but it is just beautiful.

I could have kept looking at this for hours. I couldn't explain why but thought it was genius; suppose my love of textiles and all things white and circular may have been an influence.

Hope these artists and Nexus will put on a similar show soon.
