Lots to do during lockdown as a gallery owner or an artist. Most of us can work on our artwork from home or in our studios. Here's a fab image of Katherine Message working at her wheel to create her beautiful porcelainware. I've been painting ferociously myself but there's lots of other aspects as well.
As a gallery owner I have never spent so much time on my laptop, sore fingers as a result!! I've revamped the website, been more active on social media and been researching business strategies. We'll be pushing our profile further into Dorset.
I've got some exciting ventures in the pipeline.
1. Dorset Art Weeks - 8 of our regular artists are taking part with brand new collections and hosting "Meet the Artist" sessions during the art weeks. We're also having an exhibition of young emerging artists' work in gallery 2.
2. Purbeck Art Weeks - the above will continue through to our Purbeck Art Trail, the gallery will be one of the venues.
3. A visiting exhibition in Lyme Regis at the Town Mill Gallery in August. The artists taking part to be confirmed.
Now I'm having a go at blogging - early days so I'd really love to have some feedback; either about the content or how to do it well. I'll be back in the next few days to update progress on our exciting projects.
