Introducing…The Velvet Easel Gallery

Well…this is the first chance I’ve had to put pen to paper (or finger tips to keys)  since we purchased the Gallery on the 29th August 2013. Since then, we’ve been busy renovating the space, and using our paintbrushes to create a blank canvas for all of the wonderful work we’ve been receiving into the gallery over the past three days.

There’s still more to come, and when it’s all on site, the gallery will really start to take shape, ready for our opening weekend, which will be held on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd November between 10am and 5pm.  We’ll be serving light refreshments throughout the day, and can’t wait to welcome visitors into the gallery.

The first exhibition of work could really be thought of as an introduction to The Velvet Easel Gallery and to the quality of work that is likely to be in store for visitors  throughout the coming years. We’ll be showcasing a range of contemporary artists, including painters, potters, ceramisists and jewelers.

In the meantime, here’s a photographic preview of our preparation, which started with a swim in the sea at Porty – just to make a splash – and will be completed when you all visit during the opening weekend!!
