Well not quite. We have been extremely busy refurbishing the gallery, getting lots of lovely new artwork in, producing new publicity material and a complete root and branch revamp of the website with several hundred pages showing all the artists work. Photographed, photoshopped, copywritten, priced, catalogued, designed and loaded. No mean feat. And here it is, we hope you like it!
On our new site you can find all the artists represented in the gallery but now you can also buy it here online too. But who would buy a piece of art online? Surely you want to see it for real. Well yes, but we hope the images online are quite good, but more importantly we offer a return policy which means if you are not totally happy with it when you get it you can simply return it. Simples!
There's still lots more work to do on the website and we will be continually updating it, but we would love to hear your feedback on what you think to it so far.
We would like to welcome new artists this year including Richard Thorn SWAc, Penn Boylan, Mary Oldham, Grace Cresswell, Sue Lewis, Nigel Banks, Nicola Crocker, David Dare (that's his beautiful watercolour of Hartland Quay below), Mary Stokes, Robbie Chadwick and Mark Woollacott.
We are also offering workshops and courses this year, a new addition which we hope will get more people involved in art. Check them out on the workshops page.
We will be Tweeting away and Facebooking (is that a word?), so you can follow us anywhere, anytime but why not come and see us in the gallery, we think you'll love it.
So, since I've had my feet up with nothing else to do, I suppose I had better think about painting some pictures for this year before we reopen in 3 weeks time. Well, I am an artist after all!
