A splash of colour and some wild broad strokes enticed visitors in for our popular weekly late night shopping events in December. Of course the smell of mulled wine and home made Christmas spiced biscuits played a part too.
It was a lovely end to a year of some great exhibitions. As with Helen Trevaskis in late November, Robyn Weldon had fallen victim to the retail closures at the beginning of the year. Fortunately we had a some wriggle room to change out schedule and squeeze them both in for postponed exhibitions.
Robyn Weldon's collection Confessions to the Water was created in 2020 during the first COVID lockdown after, like many of us, she had spent hours looking out the window, across the water to the horizon line, reminiscing about her coastal walks and forgotten freedoms. During these times she forged a connection with the weather and captured the ever-changing skies on paper with oil paint.
It was such a privilege to finally shine a light on both of their work and spread news of their amazing talents over such a busy period of the year for us.
Both of Helen's and Robyn's work will remain in our online gallery until the summer of 2022, so take a peek and see why we think they are both so special...
