SELECTED FOR THE HULL OPEN ART EXHIBITION
21st February 2013
Hello again! Long time no speak, but I've been busy busy with various things, thankfully some of them involving cameras!

I'm delighted to say that two of my photographs have been selected for the 2013 Open Art Exhibition at Ferens Art Gallery in the centre of Hull. The exhibition commences with a preview evening on Friday 22nd February and runs through until Sunday 28th April. The two photos in last years exhibition both sold, so fingers crossed for this year!

Bye for now.
I'VE CREATED SCOTLAND!
20th December 2012
Well perhaps that's a slight exaggeration, but I now have a Scotland gallery, following a brief four day trip up there end of Oct/beginning of Nov, and one and a half of those was taken up with travelling, so not much time for photography.

The weather wasn't very co-operative but the autumn colours were fabulous. Hope you like it.

Lang may yer lum reek!
I'M HANGING ON THE WALL AT DREWTON'S
09th December 2012
I hope this finds you in good health, and organised for Christmas (oh gawd I'm not!).

Just a brief note to say I have got four pictures on display at Drewton's Farm Shop/Restaurant, an award-winning deli, farm shop, cafe/restaurant, wine cellar, gift emporium. They are keen to support local providers and as I live half a mile down the road I guess I qualify!

Have just heard today that one of the pictures has sold twice over, so will have to print/mount/frame one darned sharpish for the second order (a Christmas pressie apparently), and another something to fill the space on the wall. Both will be done this week.

Just in case I don't shove another update on here before the festive season, I wish you a sincere very happy Christmas and good luck and health in 2013.

Now where did I put that corkscrew...?
WELL DONE ART & ROSE GALLERY
08th November 2012
Hi all

The first photography exhibition by this young gallery in Pocklington ended on Wednesday this week, and was a resounding success. Speaking personally, I originally had six images displayed, and following some sales took another three reinforcements. By the end of the month-long exhibition they had sold six, and I can afford to buy some new framing stuff!

The Art & Rose Gallery celebrates its 1st anniversary this weekend and until the end of the year will have a special exhibition featuring the artists who were featured at the gallery launch. Although I wasn't one of them, they will be including four of my photographs - thank you Emma, and here's to a successful second year!

Onward and upward.
CHASING THE LIGHT GALLERY, BRIDLINGTON
03rd November 2012
Further to my previous post about this gallery, unfortunately Jean Illingworth who runs it and rents the space from the cafe has been told that the space is required for extra tables and chairs. She had a verbal agreement with the owners that there would be a review at the end of 12 months, but unfortunately no review, just an announcement. Obviously a verbal agreement isn't worth the paper it's written on.

The pictures can stay up until Christmas (and Jean's will) but, at my request, she has removed mine today - they can't be viewed properly (or politely) if the viewer has to lean over a table occupied by customers.

Jean is a very enthusiastic photographer and is determined this setback is temporary. She is already looking for alternative gallery space in the town, and hopefully will find somewhere soon. Meantime guess where I won't be having refreshments when I visit Brid in future!!

That's life, and we carry on breathing.
AUTUMN/WINTER EXHIBITION IN BRIDLINGTON
13th October 2012
Just delivered half a dozen pictures to Chasing the Light Gallery in Bridlington. The exhibition opens on Wednesday 17th October and runs until the new year, so you know where to go for Christmas pressies!
The gallery is run by Jean Illingworth 'At No.12' Wellington Road, behind a very nice organic cafe, and is flooded with light. After viewing the exhibits you can relax in the enclosed garden with a cuppa and delicious scone/cake/pastry or whatever you fancy.
Happy days!
