Colours of Cornwall Show

Alison & I have had a lovely week exhibiting at the St Ives Arts Club...it was the first time we have shown together.  The venue really worked for us - such a great location right on the seafront (it was very tempting to keep peeking out of the window to check the waves/sand/birds.  We did have a little routine where we would close up at the end of each day & just sit upstairs watching the tide come in/go out - really enjoyable!


Over the week we have had nearly 500 visitors through the door - many of whom we had not met before. As it was half term the town was quite busy with several dogs joining the people visiting the show!  Lots of very positive comments & a number of sales :-)

We both also managed to develop some new ideas during the time we were there; Alison has some new colour combinations inspired by the changing light & colours everyday on the beach & I have done 2 sketch books with some Troika influenced designs for metalwork.

If you were unable to come along this time we are planning another joint show in October this year with the theme 'A Cornish Winter' October 8th - 14th.  More details nearer the time of course.

Hopefully the photographs will give you a taste of the exhibition.....





    

  

  

  




  
  










Alison is currently redeveloping her website but in the next couple of weeks you should be able to view lots of her latest work there...
