It's been a long time

Just over the 3 months since the last entry, in which time we've had summer, the wettest drought anyone can remember and the last week has been wet, windy and cold even for an English autumn!  Strangely all this doesn't seem to have adversely affected the gallery.  Visitor numbers are up on last year and whilst trading continues to have no discernible pattern, sales are encouraging.

Amongst this seemingly random scenario, a number of our artists, including Max Angus, Gerard Stamp and Niki Bowers attract consistent interest.  Two of Max's recent linocuts have been particularly appreciated, Redwings - seen at Binham and Fieldfares - captured (artistically) closer to home here in Burnham.

Last weekend, just before the Jubilee celebrations, we opened our first solo exhibition for a while, featuring the characterful work of Brian Hinton.  With a small collection of drawings and studies going back over some 20 years together with 5 new paintings - all featuring jazz musicians and their followers - "All that Jazz" has been very much appreciated.
