Second Exhibition

On Monday Anita and I hung our second exhibition. It was a nightmare of a day for various reasons, but we finally got home by about 6pm, rather than 1pm as we had expected! You know when you just have "one of those days"? I seem to have them fairly regularly!

Most of the paintings were the same as last time, but we both managed to include two new items each. Let me give you a tour...

As you enter the doors to the bar/restaurant area, the bar is on your left. You turn right to face the seating area, and there's Bob hanging on the wall to your right.



Step forward a little and poke your head around the wall on your right and there's a couple of my triptychs and Foot Prints in the Sand...



...and further along the wall are Anita's paintings.



Right at the end, nearest to the window, are her three abstract paintings. I couldn't get the whole wall to fit into one photo!



On the other side of the large window, on your left, is another triptych and Anita's Brotherly Love on a section of wall that sticks out.



There is more restaurant area to the left and the walls in this area are taken up with photographs of local scenery and photographs of famous people who have performed in the theatre, but for some reason there is a kind of brick pillar in the middle, so that's where we hung Yoof. Anita felt that it would really stand out and be noticeable to people there as they first entered the restaurant area, and I think she's right.



Here are the two "new" pieces that Anita added to the show.



I have a good feeling about this exhibition. I hope we're not disappointed. The bar has a lot of people passing through it before and after shows, so hopefully a lot of people will see our work.

Thank you Leanne! Really though? I don't feel like I do very much.


Thank you Kathy! Yes, it seems quite nice and the staff are really friendly and helpful (unlike at the library!). If we get a good response we will definitely exhibit here again.
