I love a good preview, and there is so much preparation that goes in to one.
First and foremost, a good exhibition is about the work, the invited artists who put together an impressive collection to engage their audience. But for a good opening, there are all the details that make up an enjoyable experience for our much-appreciated customers and artists.
I love a good spread
I love beautiful flowers
I love a roaring fire and a sprinkling of chocolates
But most of all I love people!
I love it when the doors open and a continuous flow of people come through for the three hours of the preview. This is never-ever guaranteed, and it's a delight every time to see so many people coming, enjoying the exhibition, but also meeting friends and having a good time.
The many sales are the necessary icing on the cake, but it's the crowd that pleases me most, enjoying the space and all the details that I thought maybe only mattered to me.
Thank you to every one who came on Sunday.
Thanks for reading!
