An electronic re-hang and Castlegate Prize finalists
25th March, 2020
Well, it's not possible to rehang the gallery and welcome folks through the doors as was planned, so we've electronically rehung the gallery with a collection of some of our favourite works in stock as well as some client-favourite names; All may be seen HERE. We've included names such as Sheila Fell, Alice Campbell, John Bellany, Norman Cornish, Ceri Allen, Michael Bennett amongst many others. I must admit, choosing them did cheer us up somewhat, reminded us of normality and that we're committed to remaining open for business whatever the circumstances; it felt good to focus on what we always focus on rather than the bizarre.
The Castlegate Prize - Finalists
Also we can now announce the thirty finalists in The Castlegate Prize, all may be seen over three pages HERE. We're thrilled to have raised in excess of £12,000 through entry fees for YoungMinds, huge thanks to all who entered. There are some wonderful diverse works in the final thirty, as I'm sure you'll agree. The winner-announcement and exhibition will now take place on 12th September rather than 2nd May, for obvious reasons. From what started as an idea over a late Friday evening bottle of wine has become a fully-fledged national art competition, raising a great deal of money for a wonderful charity; we couldn't be happier with the results, virus-delay accepting.
All for now, let's all keep well.
