It has been a busy month since we wrapped up our last ALBION exhibition at the pop up ‘Period of Grace’ gallery in Bristol. We have now paid all our creative’s who sold, printed and sent all the orders and followed up leads which is hugely gratifying. In amongst the sales the star was Andy White selling his ‘August Mist from Quarr Hill’ and since got another sale from a private client who saw the work in large format and fell in love with ‘Mist in the Vales’.
This is a crucial point. When the public, friends and family see the images printed they can imagine buying and hanging the work on their wall. This is why in conjunction with all our online promotion and social media presence we also hold exhibitions and encourage our creative’s to show their work and have some in stock as samples.
Philippa Gedge and Charlotte Fielding have done just this. They were so inspired by the exhibition in London that they launched their first photographic exhibition ‘ESCAPE’ on Tuesday 18th June at the Tabernacle in Notting Hill. We were delighted to both sponsor and produce all the work for them and if you are in London this week please go along to lend your support. Remember if you are included in or are planning a show, get in touch and we will do what we can to help support your endeavour however large or small, it is a key part of the Shed philosophy to not just provide a full website and online gallery but also help promote your work as part of our community.
With this in mind we are planning our next event!
We are organising a joint event at the Malthouse, Lyme Regis to combine with the Lyme Folk Festival over the August Bank holiday. The show will run from 23rd of August through to the 5th of September. It is a great opportunity to have a whole new audience through to see our work not to mention the beer festival to help whet the appetite of potential customers! We will be releasing details over the coming weeks.
Lastly I’d like to welcome back those of you who have continued to use our service and also those of you new to our community:
Keith and Jennifer Jackson, Dave Holden, Catherine Lewis, Gina Williams, Anne Reynolds, Andrew McDermott, Charlotte Fielding, Joe Clark, Megan Players, Paul Reynolds, Kris Dutson, David Jacks and Colin Tracy.
We look forward to seeing how your diverse interests and work develops as you start to upload your profiles and also meeting you in person one day if we haven’t already met!
