Most importantly, the artist has created new and original works that exemplify their talent and unique expression. I have the pleasure of hanging the work in the gallery in a way that hopefully shows each piece off to its best advantage, whilst maintaining that the gallery is itself a creative space with an energy all of its own.
When it works, it almost becomes a marriage - in my romantic mind anyway - when it works, it feels right. If it didn't work, every observer would know about it.
This strong exhibition - New Paintings by Laura Harrison opens this Sunday - and I want to thank the artist (my beautiful and talented mum) for creating such an impressive collection of vibrant works that have brought the gallery to life in a brand new way.
We are celebrating the opening of this very special exhibition on Sunday 4 March, 2pm to 5pm with delicious canapes and much champagne. You are all welcome.
Thanks for reading!
