We had planned on Wednesday September 3rd – my son’s birthday so a good omen! – for our Open Evening – a chance for friends, colleagues, neighbours, business acquaintances and fellow h.Arters to see our work before we open to the public on Saturday.
It was a gorgeous, balmy evening so our hosts, the Jinmans, served the refreshments out on the terrace
to the distant, gentle clink of the petanque match that was going on in the car park – this is a regular event at the pub – there is a league I am told and they are doing rather well in it.
Back to the exhibition – attendance was good – over a hundred people came to admire our handiwork. The function room which is doubling as our exhibition space looked stunning and with six very different media on display there was something for everyone.
Roll on Saturday September 6th when visitors and local people alike will get a chance to see not only our venue – Venue 52 – but well over a hundred others all displaying beautiful artwork.
