I’m excited to annouce that our first exhibition of the year, Close to Home, will be opening this weekend. The exhibition features a collection of contemporary artists working in the north in various disciplines, including printmaking, ceramics, collage and painting, and is supporting local charity Herriot Hospice Homecare. We’ve been getting deliveries of beautiful new work all week I just know it is all going to look great when hung together. Printmaker Helen Peyton, whose eye-catching Teapot print features on our exhibition poster, popped in this afternoon to drop off her work for Close to Home, and if you like the teapot I can assure you you’re going to love the rest. My personal favourite is this lovely reduction linocut of a vintage Ekho Radio, but you’ll have to drop into The gallery to pick yours.
We’re also really pleased to welcome back Elizabeth Price, whose delicate and touching ceramics have always been a favourite of our customers. I can’t wait to display ‘Stargazing’ (below) next to some of our new pictures…
We are holding a special preview evening for Close To Home this coming Friday evening, from 7.30pm until 9pm, so please pop in for a glass of wine and a chance to meet some of the artists.
We hope to see you there!
