Photos from our Opening

I can't believe we only have a week left until Christmas day.

Things have been very busy in the gallery and I just realised I hadn't posted any photos of our Winter Exhibition opening. It was a jolly affair with lots of Mulled Wine and great conversations. We were so busy I didn't get to chat to everyone but lots of people have come back to the gallery to view (and buy) paintings since that very crowded Saturday, at points it was a bit too busy to see the paintings!

Here are some photos from our opening a couple of weeks ago -

Jools made the delicious mulled wine and looked particularly fabulous in orange tights!

And here's some photos of the gallery and the beautiful artwork that we have in the exhibition -
Ewan McClure's painting 'Two's Company' with copper glaze ceramics by Bridget Drakeford. The flamingo ewer is Wemyss Ware by Griselda Hill.
This striking painting 'Memory of Trees' by Hope London has been sold. The amazing slipware lion, 'The King' by Paul Young sits proudly alongside a lustre vase by Jonathan Chiswell Jones. The vase is the largest we've ever had in the gallery by Jonathan and is exquisitely painted with swallows and poppies.

And finally here's the wall next to my desk with John Johnstone's 'Swing High, Red Sky' in the centre. I'm very lucky to sit and work surrounded by such amazing paintings!
