The opening day

What a busy and enjoyable time we've had in the gallery recently... I have been too busy to Blog and now don't know where to start with all the news.

On Thursday I picked up Richard Boardman and his wife Patrice Lombardi from the train and we had a really enjoyable dinner together.

After a lot of preparation in the weeks before, on Friday we hung the exhibition and installed the sculptures. Emily and Athina came down from Bourne Fine Art in Edinburgh to hang the pictures with us and Richard and Patrice set up all the fountains.

After a week of rain the weather was fabulous and we were able to set up the Richard's work in the garden, including his wonderful bird fountain.

On Saturday the opening of our Galloway Paintings exhibition and Richard W. Boardman's bronze sculpture exhibition, went with a swing. There were lots of people waiting to come in when I opened the doors at 11am and lots of red dots were soon on the the walls! We are extremely proud of the work in this show and it was so rewarding to see the enthusiasm our customers had for the work on show.

I'm hoping other people will have taken some photos of the opening as I was rushing around too much to think about taking photos, but here are a couple from our garden. It was the perfect place to sip Pimm's and enjoy Richard's work.

More to follow!

The bronzes look fantastic, what a great setting! Wish I could have made it down but I'll just need to try and get to see it before it finishes.
