After a quiet few months I have a busy few weeks ahead. As well as a couple of pictures in Eccles Community Art Gallery, along with other members of Salford art club, I was invited to show a couple of my paintings in the Summer show at the Legacy Art Gallery in Todmorden.
We dropped off the paintings a couple of weeks ago and didn't really have a chance to look around the town. This time we planned a full afternoon's visit.
As we arrived there was already a nice buzz in the gallery. As you entered through the front door, my two paintings were on the far wall and I was pleased how good they looked. After viewing the exhibits and chatting with Stella Hill, the owner, we went to a nearby café for a hot drink.
After the drink, we decided to explore a little further. Across the road there was an interesting antiques and collectors market, which seems to be on quite often.
As we wandered around town, we came across a couple more galleries and some interesting shops, the types you don't find in many larger towns.
Being a Sunday some of these weren't open and we certainly plan another visit to explore further.
As we wandered we even came across a couple of surprise sculptures that certainly livened up the place.
As we arrived back at the gallery for a final look, it was pleasing to see that the rooms were now full of people enjoying the artwork and excellent buffet.
An enjoyable afternoon, I now have to hope that someone likes one of my paintings enough to buy it.
