We have been in our new gallery now for about three months so I think its time for an appraisal of whether or not we were nuts to go ahead with such a venture.
In fact we are very pleased with the result. We are experiencing a steady flow of visitors and are gaining new customers all the time.
Everyday has contributed to our learning. There have been frequent sales of original work which is wonderful, however, we now realise that the sale of a piece results in a space on the wall, and is followed by panic when looking for a replacement.
Many people make nice remarks about the overall design of the gallery, however I think my attempt at achieving a bohemian style of dress has definitely missed the mark, last week I was asked if I was the cleaner!!
