What a weekend! A kind of tangle of memories of gorgeous weather, good art and great people. The private view was quite extraordinary. I thought the weather would either bring people out, or they would stay in their own gardens. The former happened, and around 100 came. (How you all parked I don’t know, in fact I studiously avoided finding out.) I guess if you have 30  exhibitors you are going to get a crowd. It felt like a real community of art lovers both makers and supporters, and that is a precious thing in my book. When I walked out of the studio  at the end of the pv  and into a garden full of people with plates piled high with the food everyone had brought, it was a real loaves and fishes moment. I’d love to post a photo or two but hadn’t had time to take any, what’s more my camera was not to be found: has anyone reading this any photos they could email me and I’ll post here?

By the way, if you didn’t make it, remember the show’s on until Friday June 1st.

    Thank you Bron for organising such a wonderful display of amazing art work and also for invitiing me to the very enjoyable gathering. I’m sorry to say I haven’t found my camera since moving here six months ago so have no pics to offer.
    Also hope for lots of red dots!
