The Sentinel Gallery
Yesterday morning Graham and I went down to Wivenhoe to join the crowd of other artists invited to have a look round Pru Green’s new purpose built gallery, The Sentinel Gallery. For those of you who don’t know her work, she produces vibrantly coloured ceramics, which are both beautiful and practical.
Her new gallery, in Chapel Road, is near the railway bridge and station at Wivenhoe. It incorporates a lovely big workroom/studio, with a kiln room, on one side of the entrance, and a beautiful gallery space on the other side, which is cleverly lit by a long inset roof lights as well as the usual gallery light track. The effect is a very bright and attractive display space, and I can’t wait to see it filled with art works when Pru opens for her first exhibition which will be in March.
Pru will be exhibiting again at the Lexden Arts Festival which this year will run from 2nd – 9th May. We have now finalised all the details for this year’s Festival, so do have a look at the list of artists and the events on our website, www.lexdenartsfestival.org.uk. We have some more really good new artists showing with us this year, and I’m very much looking forward to meeting them all when I start doing my ‘studio visits’ next month in preparation for the Festival.
I started my first little still life painting, ‘From my January garden,’ this afternoon. At the moment it looks terrible, so things can only get better!!
Hope your week has got off to a good start. 🙂
