a shining success...

at a time of global financial gloom, it's nice to be able to report that the art world is still shining, and that people can still see the worth of original art.

the feedback from everyone who visited our open house in wilmslow was fantastic: over 300 people came through the doors, treating the house with great respect and letting us know how much they appreciated the work that had gone in to the show.

the paintings looked so beautiful, hanging in such a great space and it was interesting to see how people reacted to the work in situ. so often, large galleries can seem rather austere and it's difficult to image a piece of work hanging in your own living room. by exhibiting art in a home environment, you begin to see it in a different light and perhaps visualise it above your own mantle.

it was a great weekend for all the artists, especially jo deas who hosted the occasion and whose work virtually sold out - a testament to her talent and ability.

thank you to everyone who took part, and to everyone who visited the exhibition.

artist and host, jo deas.
