Happy New Year!
It’s been a quiet few weeks at The Gallery, what with the snow and all, so we’ve been concentrating on planning our year’s exhibitions and of course the blog!
This year we at The Gallery have decided to do something a bit special with our blogs. Instead of just telling you about everything thats going on with us we’d like to show you a little of what makes us tick.
Every artist takes inspiration from somewhere, often from other artists. This year we’ve made a list of some of our favourite artists and artworks and every so every so often we’ll be dedicating our blog space to these fine people and their work. But wait, theres more.. not only will we be telling you a little about our favourite artists, but we will be producing a special Make –-At – Home blog where we’ll be giving insight into some of the artistic skills and techniques that we love. Sound good?
We’ve also been putting the finished touches to our exhibition schedule for this year. An exciting year it will be! For more information, keep watching the blogs and visitng the website, but for now here is the official exhibition guide for 2010.
