After days of mentally adjusting to the challenge of the weeks ahead I feel a certain sense of relief settling in, not that any of this has gone away, rather just that there is nothing to be done but to see it through: now we have done all we can to prepare for the worst we can concentrate on hoping for the best and look forward to re-emergence
So - we had planned an exhibition by guest artist Frans Wesselman in August. You may know Wesselman's paintings, etchings and stained glass, if not first hand then maybe from his brilliant series of greetings cards from Mistletoe House which we stock at YG. We have postponed the exhibition for now but I thought I might post one of his delightful woodcut prints, and two of my favourite cards from an etching and an oil painting by Wesselman - just as a taster of what is to come.
We are currently open Wednesday - Sunday and we love you to visit our gallery but also - if you are having to self isolate and would like to buy on line, please do contact us by email and tell us about what you are looking for. Only a tiny part of what is on show at the gallery is in our online shop. Things come and go everyday and each piece is individually made and unique, so it makes sense if you tell us about what you are interested in. We can take a photograph of any relevant piece with the smart phone and send it to you directly and we can take payment either by Paypal, over the phone using your credit/debit card, or by bank transfer.
Meantime here is an image of Dennis Fairweather's latest ceramic lamp (Dennis calls it a boulder lamp) and sitting next to it is his shore bird sculpture. The smooth, grey glaze is inspired by the pebbles of Freshwater Bay.
