Today, being Sunday the 15th of May is the last day of our exhibition. I turned up at the gallery a little before 12.30 to assist with manning it on our last day. There were a couple of ladies having a look at the works and chatting with Trish about one of my works, a digital print.
Well you can imagine my surprise when not two minutes later, after speaking with them a little further on how I created the work Tranquility, they decided to buy it as a present.
What a wonderful way to end the show! Below are the other works that sold, which was a fantastic result for our first showing. Congratulations to Stephanie Lewis who sold her Prize winning painting, ‘After The Bath’,
and to Deborah Lhota who sold her first painting ‘The Kiss’, after Gustav Klimt.
Many of the paintings received glowing praises and wonderful comments and I want my students to feel very proud of what they have achieved. In fact more works would have sold if they had been for sale. Trish’s Velvet Rose and her Magenta Twilight would have both walked out the door as well as possibly Jess’ latest work. So well done everyone!
Thank you to all those helpful souls who came and helped dismantle the show this afternoon and our warmest thanks to Peter and Ellie for their generosity in providing the space for us.
It was a great success all round.
