Amazingly, December is here and in a month’s time we will be marking the 1st birthday of this here blog! But right now I’m trying to get into the Christmas spirit. The festive lights are glowing in Masham – unfortunately the rain is here also (I still optimistically hope for snow every December!).
The Gallery we are excited to introduce our newest supplier Amanda Mercer. Amanda recently graduated from Carlisle Institute of the Arts and specialises in beautifully delicate ceramics and cleverly woven ‘nests’. Below is one of her Wren’s nests complete with ceramic eggs. These are already proving highly popular, as are her wonderfully festive ceramic Christmas decorations and ceramic buttons which are flying off our shelves!
Over Christmas the exhibition room is has a dazzling display of colourful works form some of our regular exhibitors, including new work by Ian Scott Massie, Pamela Knight and Rosie Scott Massie (Flower Field, Below). We also have a great selection of original prints by Janis Goodman.
In our endless endeavour to make our website more exciting for you all we are planning to activate an online shop in the near future. This means that many of the items in The Gallery will now be able to buy via a secure online transaction – so you don’t have to send a cheque or wait until opening hours to phone us. We’d love to hear some feedback on this idea – yours thoughts are always welcome…
Also along the lines of online stuff (aren’t we technical these days?) any Facebook users out there can now catch up with us on the ever-so-popular social networking site. We’re under “The Gallery”, funnily enough.
That’s all from me – we really hope to see you in the next few weeks and help with your Christmas shopping!
