5, 15 & 25

Sunday, July 09, 2017

Yes, 5, 15 and 25 are the dates of the summer shows at the gallery this summer. During July and August we host 6 exhibitions in 60 days which is quite a turnaround. Polly and I work harder than ever to keep the gallery running smoothly and looking at its best. Our visitors love attending the opening night parties and we thrive on the additional challenge these nights bring. Without our back-up team of helpers we wouldn't cope and so first of all I want to say a huge thank you to them all, Polly included, for everything they do over these next two months.


At the end of the evening the girls still look as cheerful and fresh as at the start - thanks (L to R) Max, Polly and Ruth for your support!

The show we opened on Wednesday was for Ellen Watson, Ramie Leahy and Imogen Bone and can be viewed online here. Each artist sold work and received acclaim for their paintings which made a wonderful display. The sun shone and our clients spilled outdoors to enjoy the view in between making their purchases. We couldn't have had a better start to our summer exhibition period.










The following evening we had a party to say a fond farewell to a local family. Alex and Nicola along with their sons George and Harry have lived on the island forever it seems and are now making a fresh start in mainland Cornwall. They will be sorely missed and will leave a huge gap in this tiny island community. It's sad to see them go, but we all have our own path to tread. We wish them every success and much happiness in their new life. 





On evenings like this we locals always say how we wish we got together for reasons other than a family leaving or a funeral. It seems to take these sombre events to bring us out en masse and yet we'd all prefer to come along for no other reason than to say hello and how ya doing? Food for thought.

Outfit details - I found this orange lace jumpsuit by Darling in TK Maxx and must admit it was a dream to wear. Shoes are from Primark, necklace was a gift and the other jewellery and belt are all charity shopped. Sunnies are from Quay Australia.

    1. Hahaha! Gail I did think about holding this jumpsuit back for our next challenge at least, but I'll have to root about in my wardrobe for another tangerine dream piece.

      See you soon!

    1. Thanks so much Laurie. Island life is real life in a microcosm, I think.

      I'm very lucky with my shoes finds in Primark. I came across a fluffy nude pair last time I was there - still to be shown on the blog, but will be along soon!

      Have a fab week x

    1. I'm so lucky to have the perfect excuse to fill my wardrobe with all of these dressing up outfits Jude. Glamour is indeed my middle name, hahaha! I had intended to keep the lace jumpsuit until last, but am so delighted with it that I just had to wear it for the first show. It fits like a dream and was so comfortable too!
