castle_schokoherz2We would like to welcome Alice Castle to the forum.

Alice Castle is a national newspaper journalist, blogger and writer. Her first novel, Hot Chocolate, is being published in German this summer by prestigious publishing house Ullstein.And because she is a long-standing friend of the Catch… exhibitions, she agreed to write a few words.

I’ve known Magdalena, the inspiration behind Catch by the Eye, Save in the Heart, for many years now and seen her develop the concept of the exhibition gradually, year by year. She has a very generous spirit and is always eager to bring on new talent and introduce it to a wider audience – and this extends to the general public, who are always encouraged to express themselves at Catch exhibitions on the canvases provided. These pictures provide a unique reflection of the moods of people in different countries and varying parts of the city of London and are worth coming to see on their own. Together with the professional exhibitors Magdalena  draws around her, every Catch exhibition reveals its own unique reflection of the times in which we live. Who knows what our current global mood, of introspection, fear, trepidation and the first tremblings of courage, will inspire? I look forward to finding out.

    Hi Ania, Thanks for your messsage! Yes, at the moment, my book is only being published in German but I am hoping that a UK publisher will want to publish it too at some point ….it’s about a journalist who goes through a terrible personal crisis but realises that there is something that makes everything better – chocolate! I hope it will be as delicious as it sounds.
