A Final Delightful Surprise

The last day of the season was slowly winding down to closing time, the gallery was empty and the rain showed no sign of letting up. It looked like the season would end with a whimper.

Then friends and neighbours (great supporters of the gallery) arrived, armed with bubbles and delightful canapés. A party followed. Bubbles followed bubbles and Scotch followed Irish.

Too Many Lates makes a final contribution

Even Too Many Lates seems to have caught the mood. What he meant to say was ‘THANK YOU’

Closing date

The gallery will close its door for the last time in 2014 at 6pm on Saturday 25th October. We’ll be open a little earlier than usual and close a little later as it’s the final day of our season. We still have some of the extraordinary art we’ve been lucky enough to have on show this year, including the remarkable Journey by Phyllis Woods, plus those late arrivals from Melissa Sue Labrador and Tammy Lewis.

Please note the opening (and closing) times in the coming week. We look forward to seeing old friends and new in these last few days.

Beautiful Bonus

On The Wings Of Love from Tammy Lewis

Having enjoyed a great get-together with friends and artists on Wednesday, we’re delighted to say that the evening brought a beautiful bonus in the form of another piece of glass from Tammy Lewis. On The Wings of Love is one of Tammy’s smaller pieces but no less gorgeous for that. With the afternoon sun of autumn lighting it in the gallery window it’s quite magical.

One of three bracelets from Melissa Sue Labrador

As if that were not enough, Thursday brought another fabulous surprise with a selection of Melissa Sue Labrador’s hand crafted jewelry. Intricate designs and precise working produce some really stunning items, on display now at the gallery until the end of the season in a couple of weeks. Or until they’re all sold.

Very much in Melissa Sue Labrador’s style – vibrant and rooted in tradition.

The end of the season is looming, and this year the gallery will be closing before the end of October. But we have one more show to share! And, in the usual way, we’ll do this with a few bubbles and a snack or two – on the 8th October from 5 to 7.30pm.

We’re very pleased to have Melissa Sue Labrador’s work on display – her well-known mix of vibrant colour and the deeply spiritual, together with her own signature style.

And as a new departure for the gallery we have work from  Becky Jo Gartner, currently a student at NSCAD. Her unique mix of fabric and photography – literally woven together – is worth a visit to the gallery on its own.

All friends, neighbours, followers – and of course our artists – are welcome to join us.
