As I write this, Anne and I are reflecting on a busy fortnight – the past two weeks – and the SHAF Arts Trail.
Highest footfall to date
This is my fourth year as an exhibitor for the SHAF Arts Trail and I was delighted to welcome more than 100 people.
It was great to see friends from the Kingsbridge Walk & Talk group, the Modbury Art Club and the Kingsbridge and District Camera Club (KDCC), and many others who had visited us in previous years and came back for more.
I had 37 original paintings on display, plus examples of the new affordable art range:
- fine art wall plaques
- table mats and coasters
plus my fine art greetings cards.
We ask everyone to sign the Visitor’s sheet and it’s heart-warming now to read their comments. Here’s a selection.
- Absolutely beautiful artwork
- Fascinating exhibition and stories
- Great paintings – fantastic views
- Interesting and fun
- Lovely venue for display – very good
- Spendid display and such a warm welcome
- Stunning paintings and hospitality
- The best yet!
- Very inspiring – the light is fantastic – very talented
- Very talented in several mediums
- We love it! Very impressive
- Wonderful range of paintings
(I am now blushing!)
Guest exhibitor at Beacon House Gallery
I shared my gallery space with my tutor Michael Hill and he had 26 original paintings on show, plus a few items in the browser.
I am sure the higher footfall this year is down to him.
So, thank you to Michael for joining me this year.
And, I’m also delighted that Michael will be joining me again next year.
Missed the Arts Trail?
If you didn’t find time to come in the past fortnight but would like to view my work, the Beacon House Gallery is not open to the public again until the same time next year, but you may contact me to arrange a private viewing at a time to suit us both.
