Our first show of the season took place last night with resounding success, I'm delighted to say. The gallery looks fantastic, filled with a diverse collection of paintings and new glassware produced for this exhibition. You can view the show online here and I'll give you some inside shots of the gallery at the end of the post. But let's start with the team who performed like a well-oiled machine to make the evening run perfectly - Ruth, Polly and Heather.
Strike a pose for the blog ladies!
This vintage dress was a purchase in September when I was away on the mainland. I kept it to wear over Christmas, but then decided to save it for our exhibitions instead, and I'm glad I did. It's an 80's piece with huge shoulder pads, this wonderful ruffle hem and is Italian made by Gina Bacconi. The shoes are by Jessica Wright which I bought in TK Maxx in my recent post here. My necklace is by Magpie Vintage and rings are charity shopped.
The exhibition features paintings by Tom Holland, Wendy McBride, Gary Long, Jon Evison and Richard Guy. Rob Braybrooks is showing work in woodcut from beech which is quite unusual. In addition we have a glass collection created by Will Shakspeare which are sketches of the landscape/seascape.
The gallery window overlooks New Grimsby bay with the islands of Samson in the distance to the left and Bryher to the right. The tide rolls in, the tide goes out, but this ever changing view never fails to enchant.
