Another month has just rushed by here at the gallery as we celebrated Valentine’s, toasted to the Chinese New Year and weathered the recent triptych of storms! Whilst we haven’t come out of it unscathed, our trusty builders helped patch us up in no time! The weather most certainly isn’t the only excitement we’ve had this month, quite the contrary! We have had a great number of events and firsts happen this month from our new signs and heart felt Valentine’s display (so lovingly added to by local artist Nicky Farrell’s adorable glass hearts (look forward to seeing more of her work in the future!)), to our terrific tiger display for Chinese New Year and the excitement of being welcomed into the Bridgwater Cultural Partnership!
Fresh stock is always arriving at the gallery, ready and waiting for their new home. Among these are some new creations by our terrific wood turner Gerry, a duo of miniature solar powered lighthouses and a pair of bird feeders ready to hold a feast for your avian friends. This lovely gent is welcoming to commissions, so do check his other work out at The Wood Twiller on Facebook and let him know we sent you! Accompanying Gerry’s work is some newly arrived fused glass pieces from our local glass artist and good friend to the gallery Sheila, if you’re looking for some pretty and unique coasters or something eye-catching that glistens in the Sun, then look no further! Can’t find exactly quite what you’re searching for? Then let us know and we’ll place an order just for you! Now of course what kind of a gallery would we be without some paintings or sculptures? A boring one – that’s what! Now I won’t spoil the surprise of getting to see these new arrivals first hand for yourselves but a teaser never hurts, amongst our arrivals are; a plethora of works from local artists, beautiful landscapes of both rural and urban locales, numerous mushrooms for all of you who find them to be real fun guys and a metallic maiden who just can’t wait to be shown off to fellow bikers. As an extra treat we have a few creations by the talented painter Tony Machin recently arrived here on the levels, to whet your appetite for his upcoming exhibition in the garage gallery this August!
Lastly it is coming to the time to say goodbye to our animal magic exhibit and say hello to the greatly anticipated ‘Round Bridgwater’ exhibition by our resident artist Bridget, coming at you with Round One. Round Two, following six weeks later. Fret not about our furry and feathered friends, we’re not sending them to live on a farm in the countryside! Some animals will continue to be on show in the gallery reception with others which can be viewed and ordered through our website. That’s all from us here at the gallery, you folks take care and we eagerly await your next visit!
