This week I took down the exhibition at Mark Ryan’s Great Northern Wine. The exhibition has been a great success and I thank Mark very much for holding the exhibition. I will no doubt have another one at GNW in the future. In place of the exhibition I have left Mark with six framed photographs I took for him back in 2006. They look great and help it to not look too bare in between him holding exhibitions of other artists work. Thank you very much Mark and to see the photographs left on display have a look at them below:
I received a telephone call this week from Hayley at Sandburn Hall. Sandburn Hall is a fabulous building for weddings and functions, and with the golf course, restaurant, and the nearby holiday log cabins it is a great place to have a break away. Hayley and the team are great and I very much look forward to photographing weddings at Sandburn Hall, so when Hayley phoned me to ask if I would be interested in displaying some photographs in the entrance to the restaurant I was delighted. I am looking forward to discussing the details with her in the near future.
Titled “Inspired” my exhibition at the Living Room York took place from Wednesday 7th May 2008. The show included fine art photographic prints from a recent trip to Australia of landscapes of the country.
For the most part I have tried to capture the clarity of the air that is Australia and the ruggedness of the Australian landscape, yet also show the diversity of the landscape.
The exhibition included fine art landscape photographs from Australia which were available to purchase as Limited Edition Prints, with the print run for each photograph limited to 50 in 18”x12” size, supplied as a gicleé prints, supplied with a signed certificate of authenticity.
Below are a selection of 32 images from which 18 were chosen for the exhibition
Following the very positive feedback I received from the Australia Exhibition held at The Living Room in York recently, Mark Ryan of Great Northern Wine has invited me to exhibit some of my work in his fantastic premises in Ripon. Mark is an independent wine merchant and retailer and his location is great for an exhibition. I have previously held an exhibition at GNW before am am pleased to have been asked to do so again. Therefore if you were unable to attend the Australia exhibition in York there is a second chance to see it in Ripon. There will be an open evening on the 30 July 2008 and the exhibition is to remain in place again for approximately 6 weeks. If you can make it at any time both the exhibition and a visit to Mark’s premises is well worth the visit, and I am sure Mark will happily open a bottle or two of wine for you to taste.
I am writing to thank all those people who attended my exhibition on the opening evening. The evening was a great success, with 80 attendees the place was buzzing. I am sorry I did not manage to get to speak with everybody but with so many people it was difficult to get enough time. I have received very positive feedback about the pictures on display, and Sarah Byrne at The Living Room was extremely happy with how the evening went. So much so that she is happy for the exhibition to remain for the next eight weeks. You can therefore expect it to be in place until the beginning of July at least. By all means if you get the opportunity to let other people know about the exhibition, or if you wish to have a lunch or evening out in York with friends then it would be worth considering The Living Room to have the opportunity to have another look at the exhibition.
The Living Room, York – Wednesday 7th May 2008
At a networking business meeting I attend on a regular basis I had the pleasure of meeting Sarah Byrne who works as an event organiser at The Living Room in York. I was presenting my work to representatives of other businesses and Sarah Byrne was in attendance. Following my presentation she commented on how impressed she was with the presentation and kindly invited me to use the entrance of her fantastic premises for this exhibition which will run for approximately six weeks from the 8th May 2008. There is to be an open evening on the 7th May 2008 with attendance for the open evening by invitation only. Sarah is organising the welcome drinks and all the promotion for the exhibition which is absolutely amazing.
A taster of the exhibition can be seen here:
