It was an enjoyable, but oh too short trip up country with my wife, Susanne (getting her out of her beloved The Blue Carrot was a miracle!), to see friends and do some recording with my Goddaughter’s sibling. Then it was right back to it, but by mid January, the results have been wonderfully satisfying…
…I’m delighted to announce that we’re in the Saturday Telegraph tomorrow! They’ve done a feature on the South West Coast path and have included a piece about our wonderful exhibition in May with Andrew Tozer. Not only that, but we’re also the featured gallery in this month’s Cornwall Living magazine, too! So if you live in Cornwall, you should get a copy through your door any day now.
One of the best parts of my job is discovering new artists for the gallery… or should I say them discovering us! We’ve got two new artists joining up this month and I think they’re both magnificent… well I would say that! Malcolm Ludvigsen’s seascapes are delightful and will be an excellent addition to our ever finer stable of artists.
Added to that, I’m soooo happy to announce that John Raynes popped in last week and agreed to become part of The Harbour Gallery’s success. His inimitable style of painting Cornish scenes has always captured my heart and he’ll be painting just for us in the coming weeks. In the mean time we’ll have two local scenes in now for those who – understandably – can’t wait… here’s one of his of St Just Church… just georgeous!
We’ve also been getting ready for the half-term break by renewing stock and there’s some really stunning work in from Hilary Stock (did you see what I did there!), Andrew Allanson, Ann Kelly and the ever popular Ben Catt, all of which are now live on the website and in house.
Jill hudson will be bringing some new work in in the next couple of weeks, too, and I shall be popping over to see our own Andrew Tozer on Monday for a cuppa – and will no doubt raid his studio whilst I’m there (I just can’t wait for the new works he’s finishing off for us, which we should get in mid-month, so keep your eyes peeled for those!)
So there it is; another month packed with delights and goodies. All it leaves me to say is that the lovely Rachael Mia Allen is the subject of this month’s Podcast. The uncut interview went on for nearly 20 minutes and was soooo interesting I nearly left it all in. But I know you’re busy people, so have managed to get it down to just eleven minutes for you (phew!). And I’ve even cut myself right out of shot this month, so double bonus!
Have a great month and I look forward to hearing from/seeing you soonest!
I promised you exciting news about an event we’ve got planned for Whitsun Bank Holiday week and I’m delighted to announce news of it here. How it came about, though, is a lovely story, so bear with me, if you will… read more
