June Bennett doors to open and additions
18th July, 2014
Well, what a response! We hang the exhibition today (Friday, so the gallery is closed) and doors open tomorrow, Saturday 19th, 10-5, with a reception event from 12-2. Already we have 26 works sold !! The demand has been so great that we’re bringing in an additional five that we were holding back (in fact, two are from our own collection at home!!). All new and existing work is shown in the following exhibition link (new work shown at the very top) http://www.castlegatehouse.co.uk/exhibition-details.php?EID=45 with the catalogue pdf here http://www.castlegatehouse.co.uk/exhibition_images/Catalogue08072014224800.pdf
The exhibition will run for three weeks, ending on Saturday 9th August. All work shown in the catalogue will be hung for the duration of the exhibition, so do come and take a look at some of the wonderful work June produced over fifty to sixty years !
Mike, June’s husband and fellow artist, will be in attendance on Saturday during the reception. He’s made a special request, which we think is a great idea. As many of you will know, for many years June was a highly gifted and respected jewellery designer; many people out there will be owners of her jewellery, so, if that’s you, wear it with pride and come along, it would have made June’s day.
Hope to see you tomorrow, or during the exhibition.
Steve and Christine
