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.

I have a knot in my stomach, I think that it is called "Panic".
With the
Cambridge Art Fair
Almost upon us which is then followed by a very important exhibition I am starting to worry that
there is just not enough time left to achieve everything that I have planned.
The past two weeks have been spent framing paintings for both events and there are still many  remaining that must be completed within the coming week.

This might be possible but it will be at the expense of everything else that I intended to have done.
I would have achieved a lot more but a lot of time has also been spent trying to get a small catalogue completed and sent off to the printers.
Actually it was sent to a printer, and it should have been in my hands now,
but there were a few communication problems [I'm being polite], so I started again with another printer .

It is little things like this that eat up any spare time that I haven't got.
So one thing I was certain of the blog was not going to be updated any time soon.
But then I decided that I would cheat and just show pictures and write nothing.
Then I thought "well I've got to say something".
Before I knew it I was in the mood for writing, but then I looked at the paintings waiting to be framed
and decided to revert to Plan A.

So here are the pages of the catalogue that should be delivered next week.

I confess that was a lot easier than writing, besides every picture tells a story, so they say.
I must go now as I have some serious worrying to do.
Someone has to, so it might as well be me.


  1. Don't worry. It always get done. Just keep slogging away at it. It does all look beautiful. Can't wait to hear how it went.

    1. Hello Donna

      Thanks for your encouragement, I need it.
      I have given myself a list of things to achieve today but I know I won't get everything done.
      Still some is better than none.
      I hope I survive the stress and excitement to let you know how it all goes.

      Best Wishes

  2. Thank you John... and see you (very very) soon....

    1. Hello Anne
      Your visit to New York looked wonderful, your photographs captured the atmosphere and the architecture. It wont be as dramatic here in Long Melford, but the art will look as good.

      I am both very excited and nervous at the thought of your visit, I hope that I am ready in time.
      See you soon

  3. Breathtakingly Beautiful Mysterious Wonderment!

    1. Blimey! Mo

      That sounds like the introduction to a book.
      I think I will have to ask you to write all of our "blurb" in the future.

      I hope [I know] that it will all look good but at the moment I am still deep in 'worry land'.
      I'm sure it will be OK on the night.

      How are you?
      I've missed replying to a couple of your notes, but that is nothing as I still have about 50 unanswered emails to attend to.
      But all in time.

      Take care
