Mum Marsha

Daughter Marsha has a daughter. So has her husband Moe. At 2.5 days old she has no name as yet. All well

Saturday, 10 March 2012

Sandie is officially in the driving seat.

So today is my last working day in the gallery and I've been training mum up to look after everything while I'm away. She's been through a mixed range of emotions today........ from indifference, to elation, to despair, to even more despair, to .... well.... even more despair. Good luck mum!! Wishing you all the best and lots of arty sales!

Over and out (for now)

Spring Exhibition: Up and running

Mum did a fabulous job with a wee blog post I see. It's great that she's getting into the spirit of things before I head off on maternity leave (next week!). I think I'll have to go over putting photos on with her though...... it's easy when you know how, mum!

So the new exhibition is up and running and is so far being received with great enthusiasm. The weekend saw mum winning employee of the week as she sold lots of lovely pieces of art. Good job mum!
We have a delightful array of Peter Luti postcards which are proving very popular.... especially the big bums - I don't know what it is with my dad's fascination with large posteriors.
So all the new work is up and ready to be viewed (and bought!). I can tell you that hanging paintings is not as nearly as easy or fun at nine months pregnant than it used to be pre-pregnancy! I will be very sad to leave the gallery when I'm on maternity leave, but not sorry to have a break from changing exhibitions!
I like this little display of Peter Luti & Gio Martin's. I think the work compliments each other very well (there's even a couple of Marsha originals in there that don't look too bad as well).
So that's a wee look at the gorgeous Spring exhibition. Looks nice in the photos, but I can tell you now that it's much better seen in person. Keep updated on our new opening times on the website.

New Exhibition now open

It has been a very busy week leading up to this exhibition, not just because of the hanging of new paintings from various artists, but also because Marsha has been very, VERY patient in helping me with the intracacies of updating the website and other essential aspects of running the gallery. She is off on maternity leave as from the 13th March and I will be in charge.

New opening times are: Open -Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays 12.00 - 17:00.

Getting ready for new arrivals.

This week we are preparing the new exhibition, so paintings are being delivered all week ready for opening the show on Saturday.

Dad has been beavering away as usual coming up with the goods for the new show. Art is not the only thing we are expecting to arrive very soon, however........
..... with only 4 weeks until our due date, we're expecting a little art lover to arrive at some point during the spring exhibtion. Then my mum (Sandie) will be running the gallery. Until then, I'm happily receiving paintings.
Eilean Donnan is one of the typically quirky Gail Stirling Robertson's in the new show.
And Brian Petrie;s work is also full of character. Another vibrant and delightful exhibition indeed!
