Blog Week 42Last updated on
This week has raced by with the Todd White exhibition giving us a great boost into the week and then a hectic few days clearing up and rehanging the gallery. The exhibition was a great success and it was wonderful to see lots of old and new faces along with being reunited with one of our longest standing returning exhibitors, Mr Todd White!
The exhibition saw the launch of Todd’s new book, The Devil’s in the Detail, which is a great read and even includes a photograph of our gallery and a number of our hardcore collectors. The book is still available at the gallery along with a great selection of Todd White original paintings and rare and sought after editions.
Meet Rozanne Bell – 30th November
Hot on the heels of Todd will be Rozanne Bell who will be exhibiting at the gallery for the first time. Having sold Rozanne’s quirky paintings for over ten years, we are really excited to welcome her to the gallery and hope that lots of you can make it along to see her on the 30th November.
Check out this months Lancashire Life to see a full page spread on Rozanne Bell and Giles will be back on Radio Lancashire with Gilly on 24th November talking about the exhibition so do tune in at 3pm for his regular slot.
In the run up to the exhibition lots of new and unique works will be coming into the gallery like this amazing Zebra below but if you do have something specific in mind, do let us know asap and we will see if we can fulfill your needs!
New Original Paintings from Javier Mulio and Anne Blundell
As well as our visiting artists, we are still busy acquiring the best possible works by our regular artists and one of the finest examples to arrive in quite some time is the latest example by Javier Mulio.
Although well known for his fabulous photo realist still life paintings, this latest acquisition adds a new dimension incorporating the bottle back drop and is truly breathtaking.
If you get chance, do call in and view this painting in real life as it has to be seen to be believed. Unfortunately, it isn’t likely to be around for long so don’t hang around on this one and call in over the weekend if you can.
Local artist Anne Blundell is also in a rich vein of form at present with two brand new original paintings this week. Although her classic subject matters, the two new paintings explore new colour palettes and move the paintings on once more so hopefully they will meet with the approval of you avid Anne Blundell collectors.
Napoleon by Frogman
This latest limited edition sculpture from the Frogman has been released early this week due to mounting pressure and anticipation from collectors.
Napoleon is the latest in Frogman’s owl series and is an incredible statement piece from a worldwide edition of only 300. Napoleon is still in production but is expected to arrive in the gallery in late November but if you can’t wait that long, full details are available online here where you can pre order your edition in order to ensure delivery before Christmas.
We hope you like this week’s new arrivals and if Christmas is on your mind, do talk to us now to reserve or order your favourite piece so that we can ensure we have everything ready for you in good time.
Social Media Highlights This Week
As it’s been such a busy week on social media this week with the Todd White exhibition, we thought we would include some of the highlights including the lucky collectors who got to meet Todd White in the fabulous Spago Restaurant in Lytham owned by two of Todd’s incredible collectors along with the NFU ladies who provide such fantastic insurance services to many of our collectors. Also check out the two great customer homes pics shared on Twitter which look amazing!!
