ShoreThyme Exhibition Opening
After Weeks of preparation, Monday the 6th finally arrived. Time to take the paintings up to the show for hanging.
All stacked up and ready to go.
Packing the car.
Last minute preparations the night before.
Delivering the works. It was pure bliss loading and unloading the bags of paintings. No more messy bubble wrap. That’s 11 paintings delivered in only 2 trips to the car…… totally awesome!!!
Julie unpacking her paintings at the exhibition venue.
Esther arrives with her work.
And a much-needed coffee break at the Bombora cafe, after all the delivery details were settled!
And ……….Drum Roll ……….!!!! THE SHOW!!!!
We had a fantastic turn out that far exceeded our expectations. A HUGE thank you to everyone who came, braving the cold chilly winter evening. We were very excited for Julie and she made some sales on the evening. Congratulations Julie – well done!!
On the night – Julie’s work – The top left hand work was one of those that sold.
Works on show before the crowds arrived….. These are my works from my Outer Landscapes Series
On the night – One of my dear patrons and supporters – Barbara Baker-Richards, a local entrepreneur and trainer. I love that hat!
And now that the excitement of that is over – ON TO THE NEXT ONE!!!!
Here is your invitation to the next one in case you missed it before
I look forward to seeing you there and a huge thank you once again to everybody who came along to the ShoreThyme opening and to the wonderful staff and owners of the venue for looking after us so well and helping to make the evening a wonderful success.
This Weeks Question: Have you supported your local artists recently? Attending an exhibition opening is a way of doing this that really boosts them and doesn’t commit you to anything.
