It’s always fun when a new batch of artwork arrives from an artist, and opening the bubble-wrap feels like Christmas. This week we had two such deliveries, with new work from Chitra Merchant and Anna Harley. Both prolific screen printers, it’s always a delight when they turn up at the gallery with new images to show. Time for a Tuesday re-hang! Here some of the screen prints we now have ready to exhibit:
Although we’ve been open for a few months already, we finally got round to holding the Gallery & Barrow launch party! It turned out to be great night, the wine flowed, lots of people came and the small gallery was full of smiley visitors. Thank you to the artists who managed to swing by, including Jacqueline Byrne, Otto & Elena, Mark Thomas, Anna Harley and Heloise O’Keefe. Thank you for helping with the bar, Roman and Emma and thank you BathLife magazine for covering the event. Many guests even came from afar including Bristol, Portishead and Salisbury.
We held an art raffle and the prizes included two lovely screen prints by Anna Harley and Sarah Targett, greetings cards by Nick Cudworth and Clare Cutts, a wooden easel, handmade papers and canvasses. Well done to the winners!
Thanks for a great evening. We look forward to seeing everyone again at the gallery soon!
