Opening Evening!


Such a lovely evening last Thursday, for the preview of Craggs & Fells at Heart Gallery. Sunshine was promised, but never materialised. Which makes it all the more amazing that this lovely and determined lady pitched up at lunchtime to bag her place at the front of the queue.

The Heart Gallery Dream Team were ready with the warm welcome and the Prosecco…. Ready for action Mandy and Bart? Others seemed to be a little camera shy on Thursday!

Cold outside. Warm and colourful inside.

I have to introduce you to my own dream team: My Studio Fairy Nancyann (who never likes having her photo taken) is holding my little boy. And this is Rob from Knight Graphics who does all my lovely Giclee prints, and Vince from Abacus, my brilliant framers. I’ve been very demanding these last few weeks. I know they all know how much I appreciate what they do.

And then the Fell Runners came. Turns out they scrub up quite well too. I usually only see this lot in mud spattered running gear!

The exhibition will be at the gallery until July. Details of all the paintings are here.

  1. Congratulations on such a fabulous opening night! Loved every single painting and was glad I got to chat to you too this time! (Scottish lady who wished you’d painted Glasgow instead of Edinburgh!) I even managed to add to my growing print collection with no.1/150 of Friday Morning – my all time favourite! I will have an original yet – sadly this one was already taken – bet it was that very determined lady at the front of the queue! They are all worth queuing for!

  2. Thank you Linda! It was lovely to chat to you. I will get to Glasgow. Daft that I’ve never been. Friday Morning went to the third person in the queue; he was pretty determined, but he didn’t have a deckchair and a Thermos! Kate x

  3. I wasn’t able to attend the opening evening but still made the time to visit your exhibition on Saturday. I thought the whole thing was wonderful and what a friendly team they are at the Heart Gallery!

    As expected, by the time my wife and I got there all the originals had been sold. Nevertheless, I put an order in for a print of Gibson Mill – can’t wait. It will compliment our print of Stoodley Pike perfectly!

    Wishing you continued success in the future!
