Reflection: The Show's Open!

Eagle Galley with our poster
Well - we're open! Pat and I hung our work on Friday and have spent the last two days chatting to visitors and actually selling some work, so we're off to a good start. Thank you to all of you've come along so far - particularly those of you who've travelled some distance to support us. It's been lovely to see you all and to hear your comments. It's made all the slog getting the stuff actually on the walls and hanging straight worthwhile! I wish there was a magic word for artists, like Abracadabra, that just floated them all into place without stepladders, levels and fighting with twiddly bits of hanging cord!

But, it's up, open and we're both very pleased with how it looks. We even made the local paper : -).

Here are a few photos of the Exhibition:

 We have 6 days left to run and it would be lovely to see a many of you as can make it. Full details are on my Exhibition Page here. Hurry while stocks last. Just kidding - the stuff on the walls will be there until the end (hopefully with some red dots on them) but I am getting rather short of those lovely little painted hearts...

One week to go!

My exhibition at the Eagle Gallery with fellow artist Patricia Ellis is only one week away now, so it's all systems go sorting everything out, making labels, bagging up stuff for the browsers and generally wrestling with mountains of bubble wrap.

I have a few more painted hearts, nice big chunky ones which I've really enjoyed decorating:

All you owl lovers will be well looked after, I have owls on everything! And I have another small, mystical 6" x 6" acrylic called Every Heart Holds The Sun which has gold highlights to lift it:

We are hanging the exhibition on Friday and will be open on Saturday 14th for our Open Day when we will have some refreshments to entice you over. Both Pat and I will be there all day Saturday and Sunday and through the week I'll be there in the mornings with Pat covering the afternoons. Saturday the 22nd will be covered by both of us again. We are really looking forward to seeing those of you who come and talking about what we've done.
