The Shed Show, which took place in West Deeping this weekend, represented a culmination of twelve months worth of paintings devoted to the subject of our local fenlands.
It served also to celebrate the first year of successfully working full time as a local Artist. It was the first solo exhibition of my work and turned out to be a great success.
Bringing the community together through a shared love of our landscape, the event gave people the chance to mingle, make new friends and enjoy the glorious weather.
Sue & Dick Latham kept the much needed refreshments on sale, raising funds for West Deeping Village Hall, whilst free tasters of delicious homemade wines were handed out by Judy & Henk Buijs.
In total, seven original paintings found new homes over the weekend. The support and encouragement shown by local people was second to none.
A huge heart-felt thank you needs to be said, to everyone that came, shared their love of the Fens and their stories of the landscape, to everyone that helped to make the event happen, to Sue & Dick, Henk & Judy and of course to my incredibly hard working family for their support.
Bring on ‘The Shed Show 2017’ – If you know a shed that would make a good pop up gallery please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
