What a Week!

Apologies for not posting earlier, but we feel like our feet haven’t touched the ground for the last couple of weeks! Serena and I have been working really hard to put together the stand at the Royal Bath & West Show this year… and it was brilliant!

As I mentioned in previous posts, we had a joint stand with fellow artist and friend Steve Hall. A massive thank you to Steve for all he has done towards this exciting venture… we couldn’t have done it without him. We would also like to thank and recommend the suppliers of the clip together board and lighting system that we used to hang the paintings. Clip (clipuk.com) in Warmley, near Bristol were excellent and the product worked a treat… thank you.

It was three very long and busy days and we had a fantastic time. There were huge crowds on all three day so lots of new leads, brochures given out and, rather nicely, sales too! (Oh, and a fair bit of fudge consumed too!).

What we didn’t sell at the Show is now hanging back at our gallery and Serena is full of enthusiasm and already painting again.

Why not pop down to the Tithebarn Workshops and have a look around?

14 days to go…

We are very excited and working feverishly towards the Bath & West in just 2 weeks! Serena and Steve have been painting up a storm and most of their work is now at the framers… nothing like cutting it fine!

The promotional stationary and posters have been printed and are ready and we can’t wait to get going…

We will be setting up in the Exmoor Hall at the show ground in Shepton Mallet on the Wednesday and then open from 9am to 6pm on the Thursday 2nd, Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th June.

We’re all looking forward to a busy jubilee long weekend.

Themed Hanging Baskets

It’s that time of year again and we thought this year we would theme our hanging baskets at SerenArts Gallery

We’ve gone for the red, white and blue basket for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June and the blue and yellow for Ukraine.

It’s all looking lovely down at the Tithebarn Workshops with the Cloth Road Arts Week starting today and most of the units here taking part this year.

Why not pop down for a browse around the workshops and enjoy some of the wonderful artwork created for this weeks festivities…

Above are the various artists taking part this week, offering a diverse selection of work across a broad range of media. Just look out for the bright door signs and enjoy the artwork…

Barton Farm Country Park

Not much chance of spotting the kingfishers that regularly visit the Barton Bridge area this morning…

Some much needed tree chopping over at the Rowing Club has meant frequent trips through the ford and over the bridge for this tractor and trailer. It always looks a bit odd seeing vehicles on Barton Bridge!

On another note… plans are progressing for the Cloth Road Arts Week at the Tithebarn Workshops. We now have 5 artists / makers participating from 30th April – 8th May 2022. (Serena Pugh | Helen James | Jacqueline Byrne | Karen Mizak | Mary Petrovska)More information to follow soon.

Royal Bath & West Show 2022

Plans are now moving on quite quickly with this years Royal Bath & West Show. Serena will be exhibiting at the show with local artist and friend Steve Hall. We originally met Steve at the Bath & West back in 2010 and have been friends ever since. There is a lovely symmetry about returning to the place where things all started.

We have had confirmation that we are going to be in Exmoor Hall in the Gifts and Lifestyle section of the show. More information will follow as and when we get it, but we are very excited about attending this prestigious event again after all these years.

A Serene View of Poetry

Great excitement again at SerenArts Gallery as Serena’s latest book has just arrived…
