On Friday the 26th of April our Julie Dodsworth Giftware Section will have its Official Opening. Julie's art and designs will be complemented chiefly by inspiring art of local artist and Gallery 42 bestseller, Nel Whatmore. Hello everyone.
This is a particularly exciting event at the gallery for me for several reasons, which really are quite simple. I love the art we're going to be showcasing, I loved the art and atmosphere of the last evening and I love that because of these two things, there is a great chance of Friday going the same fantastic way that our last event - John Kaye's Preview Evening - went.
I'm not going to talk too much about the art of Nel and Julie too much in this post because I shall hopefully be posting interviews with them in the next day or two. Needless to say I'm very excited about bringing the two artists' work together for what I believe will be the first time. Below are links to their websites and some photos of the giftware section... There are no photos of the Whatmores on display as of yet because Ian is still working his wood-based magic on the shop ready for Friday evening.
From 7pm Friday Evening (April 26th) all are invited to Gallery 42 to the Official Opening of the Julie Dodsworth Giftware Section. It is sure to be a memorable night with lots of free wine, nibbles, conversation and live music throughout the night from Tadcaster's own James Brown, Mark Allison and Will Dinsdale of Shupadum and myself, amongst others!
