A reminder that we open the doors to the New Talent exhibition this coming Saturday 28th March, showcasing the works of two hugely talented young up-and-coming artists, Jess Pigott and Alex Hain http://www.castlegatehouse.co.uk/exhibitions/new-talent-works-by-jess-pigott-and-alex-hain/  The gallery will be open on Saturday 28th from 10-5 as usual, with a wine and canapés reception held between 12-2pm, with both Jess and Alex, I’m sure nervously, in attendance. I’m sure they’d both be hugely grateful for your support on Saturday, so if you can make it, please do come along; believe me, it’ll look amazing and shouldn’t be missed.

The response following the catalogue postal and email launch has been fabulous, with thirteen of the thirty-three paintings already sold! Importantly though, all will remain hung as part of the exhibition until the end on the 18th April, so you can see the full exhibition in its entirety throughout.

Also to mention, Alex and I will be appearing live on BBC Radio Scotland from 3:40pm on Friday 27th, talking about Alex’s journey to this point, and the exhibition. We’ll be on the Culture Studio show; tune in live or listen again on the BBC Radio Scotland website.
Finally, don’t forget, the gallery will be closed on Friday 27th to allow us to hang the new exhibition.

p.s. don't forget, all of Alex's and Jess' paintings can be purchased through the Arts Council OwnARt scheme, spreading the cost, interest free, over ten months.
