Over this weekend, all of the new paintings are arriving for our upcoming Winter Exhibition. This a is really enjoyable experience for me because I get to catch up with all the artists, meet some new invited ones, and open all the carefully wrapped packages like it's already Christmas!
I have invited around twenty-five painters and several applied artists to contribute to this large and varied collection in the run up to Christmas.
I already have that excited tingle that comes with being surrounded by strong and vibrant talent. The work has only begun to arrive and already several pieces have sold over the last couple of days. Always a sign of wonderful things to come.
Thankfully buyers are happy for the works to be kept for the exhibition. It's important to me, and of course the artists, for the work to be seen. This is what the gallery is for - for work to be viewed and enjoyed.
These are just snaps of the gallery today, but it's the paintings themselves that need to be seen. The work that is arriving is truly gorgeous in so many different ways. We are showing very distinctive artists whose work can't fail to capture the attention.
Images will be appearing on our website over the weekend. Stay tuned!
The exhibition opens on Sunday 4th November.
Thanks for reading!
