Words & Pictures Gallery will be open as usual on Saturday 23rd December from 10am to 5pm and unusually we will also be open on Sunday 24th December 11.00am - 4.00pm!!! If you need any last minute gifts or just want something to do while you're waiting for the turkey to defrost please do drop in to the Gallery and say hello. We will then be closed until 10am Wednesday 3rd January 2018. Shelley and I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy new year. Large
The gallery walls are sporting a completely new set of paintings. There are some large pieces that really need to be seen in person to fully appreciate them. If you see something that's not on the website drop me a line and I'll reserve it for you. Any of these would make an amazing Christmas present.

The space lends itself to these painterly illustrations and you can almost pull through a narrative individually and collectively. The large one on the door has sold and gone to live with its new owners but there are still other works available. There has been a lot of interest in this 'Chagall' like painting - we have had a number of enquiries so I think it will be gone by the weekend.
We are having a 'meet the artist' session this Sunday from 11am to 2.30pm. Please do drop in for a glass of mulled wine and see a selection of recent mixed media illustrative paintings by Anna Fitzgerald. These works are mostly on board with layers of acrylic paint, ink and resin which float over the surfaces. The subject matter is concerned with encounters with angels and other winged fellows - quite a seasonal mix for the gallery.
