2020 ANNUAL FOLK ART EXHIBITION
has been postponed, but will be coming soon in a “Contactless” format!
Our Annual Folk Art Exhibition, originally due to open for preview next Thursday 7th May has been postponed. However, we are in the process of creating a digital catalogue of the works to be shown, (quite a task in view of closures, restricted movement and social distancing). It is times like this that make us realise how well supported we are and how many various elements and talented dedicated specialists we are rely upon to help manage and run our business. We will publish details on the “Journal” page of our Website and post updates on our Social Media platforms as our plans come together. In the meantime, thankfully we are all well, keeping safe at home and embracing the challenges facing us and all small businesses, including many independent restaurants, shops, bars and Galleries that have been shutdown by Government directive. We look forward to sharing the new collection with you in due course and it will feel like a celebration after beavering away behind the scenes to “keep the show on the road”.
If you would like to be included in any of our Exhibition related mailings and announcements, please get in touch!

A Closer Look at a Georgian Trestle Ended Rectangular Stool...Three Planks, Two Angles.
Earlier this week, I had a phone interview with a leading American arts journalist who is interested by our RYA Contemporary Collaborations initiative and the inspiration behind it.
Rather as I imagine it would be talking to a counsellor, she asked simple sounding questions that reached further than they initially seemed designed to do. I found myself looking back to my school days and remembering the lofty ambitions I harboured to become a painter at that time. This lead to a chat about some of my teenage inspirations.
