Christmas can bring all sorts of different things. It can be merry, it can be stressful, it can be poignant, it can be sad. We've probably all had different experiences at this heightened time of year.
This year it's been a very happy Christmas for Smithy Gallery. The gallery has just turned six years old (don't you just hate it when a birthday clashes with Christmas!) and even through these trying times, I'm so happy to say that with each year, the gallery has gone from strength to strength.
This is to do with a dream, but mainly it's about relationships. The artists we show are not only incredibly talented, but also kind and supportive. So many art-lovers frequent the gallery regularly, always with kind remarks and positivity.
I had always hoped to have a gallery that people felt happy in. A warm, calm but stimulating place to be. My dream came true.
I'll be taking a few days off over the festive period (opening times are on the website). I'll maybe do a little bit of relaxing, but mainly dreaming. No harm in reaching for the stars!
Thanks for reading!
