Issue 33

Happy New Year and welcome to the first newsletter of 2016. Hopefully you all had a fab festive season, overindulged just a little bit and have not broken your new year’s resolutions……….yet!
In case you are feeling a little bit flat after all the partying, Vita Sackville-West has this to say:

“The shortest day has passed, and whatever nastiness of weather we may look forward to in January and February, at least we notice that the days are getting longer. Minute by minute they lengthen out. It takes some weeks before we become aware of the change. It is imperceptible even as the growth of a child, as you watch it day by day, until the moment comes when with a start of delighted surprise we realize that we can stay out of doors in a twilight lasting for another quarter of a precious hour.”

Our recommendation would be to give yourselves a post-Christmas treat by finding another beautiful artwork to hang on your walls!

Christopher P Wood

We kick-off the new year in fine style with a wonderful dedicated exhibition of work by Christopher P Wood. Opening on Saturday 16 January, we will be showcasing the extraordinary work of this talented painter; a creator of landscapes with elegiac and timeless qualities, peppered with surreal visions of the seen and unseen.

We have carried a small number of examples of his work before and they proved to be quite popular and now feel that you would perhaps welcome an even more in-depth look at this wonderful artist’s work.

Soup glorious soup!

In case you were looking for something other than Wood, we have also brought in a few new things for you to consider. Have you ever wondered what on earth to hang in your kitchen? Well wonder no more, we have the perfect solution; one or more of the Campbell’s soup can series by Andy Warhol. We don’t have many (just four) but when you see them they will make you smile and you will wonder how you ever got along without one.
