Welcome to the Gallery

Imagine is set in the Suffolk village of Long Melford.
This is an attempt to record the daily trials, tribulation and pleasure of running an art gallery.

Friday 18th September

A day spent re-arranging the shop, you have to live with things for a little while before you can
see where they can be shown to their best advantage, sometimes there is nothing wrong but with a little shifting around suddenly everything gels together. The work that didn't need moving was the work by Ostinelli & Priest, as I mentioned yesterday they saved the day arriving with large sculptures  at the last moment after we had been let down by one artist who had been experiencing problems and was unable to send larger work that we had been anticipating.
Paul and Gaynor arrived 15 minutes before the opening with some of their beautiful pieces, they
instantly assessed that I was in "full panic" mode and set the work up themselves, and there it has stayed.

Although hard pushed to have a favourite I find I keep going back to look at the
'Stalking Horse'
It looks different from every angle and I know my photograph doesn't do justice to the sculpture, which has a very commanding presence.
When I have the time I will show more of their work, I know they are destined for
great things and at the moment I am thrilled to have a collection here. There are times that everything feels like my own private collection but sadly that's not the case.
