OF MICE, MEN – AND COVID

James Doran Webb’s exhibition of driftwood sculptures at Trinity Manor is postponed until 2022. He explains below:

James Doran-Webb with his driftwood sculpture: ‘Infants of Poseidon’

For months now I have been planning an August exhibition of my driftwood sculptures to be held at Trinity Manor. Unfortunately this is no longer possible; the pandemic has caused absolute chaos to global shipping and week by week I have been informed of additional delays to the arrival of my shipping container, a situation that would have been unheard of last year.

My sculptures left my workshop in Cebu, Philippines, 12 June. Three weeks ago, after much delay, they finally departed from the regional super-port of Singapore bound for Felixstowe. I assumed that this was the final hurdle. Alas, my broker called me last week to advise that the vessel has been further delayed and I have had to finally accept that a 2021 Jersey exhibition is now impossible. I am absolutely devastated that circumstances have conspired to make this year’s exhibition impossible.

To those who were excited by the prospect of my exhibition, thank you so much for your interest and sincere apologies for the let-down. I am working closely with Trinity Manor to arrange an exhibition as soon as the situation allows a little more control of the logistics. Tentative dates are the second half of June. Fingers crossed that 2022 will prove a little easier to arrange such events!

If you are planning a visit to the Chelsea flower show this September 21 to 28 please do visit me on Main Avenue – stand number MA 330
