We are so glad that we made the effort in 2010 – 2011 to ensure that we have an efficient studio space up and running. It is paying dividends now as although it is pretty chaotic on the home front, our art production and exhibition planning has been able to continue relatively unhindered. Unfortunately it [...]

I understand from Stephen that the preview event yesterday evening at The Gallery in Chard went very well. He says that Tracey and Simon had done a lovely job with the hanging and everything looked really good. The evening was quite busy and Stephen enjoyed talking with everyone who came. People seemed genuinely intrigued by [...]
If you tried in vain to visit Stephen’s show at the Glass Room on a Sunday last month we can only apologise, but the fault was not ours.

Stephen has gone down to the Colston Hall to be on hand at his show today. If anyone is able to drop in he’d love to chat about the work. There is a record fair on in the hall foyer today, so there should be quite a few people around.

It is an excellent addition for the Colston Hall. The gallery is in the main foyer, divided from it by a glass wall so people [...]

Tomorrow morning we will start hanging the work and the kit we need is organised and packed. I have prepared [...]
Distributing flyers, updating mailing list, framing work , preparing show information. Making the work is the easy bit.

He has been using a rather lovely plain beech moulding for all his pictures, but he is considering using an even plainer ‘box frame’ instead. All this takes time, finding out what options local framers will make [...]
