At the openings of solo exhibitions, we generally have a large crowd with people keen to meet the artists. The gallery is a sociable place where friends arrange to meet to view exhibitions together, to discuss paintings and perhaps enjoy a glass of wine as they look round a show.
It has been a strange year with much political uncertainty which we feel has translated into uncertainty for people thinking of buying art. Many have held back but we have been very busy in the last few weeks so we hope people are beginning to feel confident again.
There seems to be rather an air of gloom around at the moment. If it’s not Brexit, it’s the weather; if it’s not the weather, it’s the economy; if it’s not the economy, it’s the environment. So our upcoming exhibition could not be better timed.
