Taking part in the SHAF Arts Trail is a huge undertaking, and hugely rewarding. We’ve met some interesting people – some artists, some visitors to the South Hams, and some locals. Wonderful!
SHAF Arts Trail Update: the preview evening
After several days of setting up the gallery with works by Michael Hill and Chris Pring alongside my own, we had our preview evening on Friday 11 October. A crowd of 30+ spent the evening in the company of Michael, Chris and myself. We had wine and nibbles and our guests had first choice on the material on display.
If you’d like to be invited to this event next year and, meanwhile, kept up to date with news of forthcoming events, contact me.
SHAF Arts Trail Update: Chris Pring
Several of Chris Pring’s pottery items were sold on the preview evening, including one of his three muses and a hare plate. There’s still much to see though. Most of his work is in the sunroom (AKA our dining room).
There’s another display of his work in the entrance hall providing an excellent welcome to our visitors.
The grey vase on the top shelf (Grasses) was sold just after I took this photograph. Come soon, if you want to be sure of a piece of Chris’ pottery.
SHAF Arts Trail Update: Michael Hill
Michael Hill’s new style of painting – focusing on people rather than places – has drawn lots of interest.
Which do you prefer?
We also have several of Michael’s unframed original works in the browser, very reasonably priced. To date, we’ve sold five of these, but there are more. Come quick?
SHAF Arts Trail Update: Stephen Thomas
My affordable art is proving very popular. Costing from as little as £3.75 (for a keyring or fridge magnet) – many of these items are perfect for Christmas gifts.
On the preview evening, I sold all my stock of glass chopping boards, including one showing Dappled Light, and more – in both A4 and A3 sizes – are on order, due in later this week.
During the past week, the Dappled Light design has been the most popular and lots of cards, wooden placemats and coasters, two wall plaques and two pills boxes have been sold. Again, more are on order!
SHAF Arts Trail Update: the weather?
The weather has been variable. Some sunshine. Some heavy rain. But visitors have arrived come rain or shine and have been made very welcome. Tea/coffee and biscuits, and a wonderful view are available for all comers.
There’s still time to visit. We are open 10am-5pm daily until Sunday 27 October.
Closed on Tuesday!
