Coming to the space from Saturday, with a complete change of mood, are the beautiful works of Kelly Anne Cairns, whose work I had hoped to show before the gallery was even up and running!
The original plan was for another artist to show, but when this fell through, Joyce stepped into the breach.
As a huge fan of her work, I was delighted that this was possible, and hanging the two artists' work on Friday night will be such a pleasure. I love the process of transformation the gallery undergoes and the peace of the evening to observe the works and how they hang together; one of my favourite parts of the job.
The show opens on Saturday, with the usual preview wine and chat from 2-4pm!
Another new version of Ralph has also appeared; since I painted him on our counter front he has somewhat taken over my sketchbook and now has a whole host of companions in creation...
