Yes… that is ice you can see forming on the canal! A very chilly start to the day on my morning walk. It’s going to be a ‘winter closed door policy’ at the gallery today!
I also noticed that the canal towpath is going to be closed from Bradford to Avoncliff for an extended period. The water level is going to be dropped by 100mm and repairs undertaken on the embankment. On the plus side, the mud on the river walk is frozen solid so you won’t get muddy going that way!
Here’s a date to pop in your diary… 30th April – 8th May 2022.
SerenArts Gallery are very pleased to announce that we will be taking part in next years Cloth Road Arts Week. It’s a good few years since we last took part so we have joined forces with the other units at the Tithebarn Workshops to create a proper destination for art lovers.
We will bring you more information once we have plans in place!
It doesn’t take a squirrel long to figure things out and this resourceful little chap has discovered where we keep the box of bird food at SerenArts. We heard a rustling and there was his little face peering out under the curtain! A bit of early Christmas shopping perhaps?!
We have been dipping into the SerenArts Gallery piggy bank and stocking up on lots of lovely new stock. We’ve got new gloves, magnetic brooches, paua shell jewellery and lots of fabulous new designs added to our costume jewellery range. These will all hopefully be on the shelves by this weekend (HGV situation allowing!).
We will also be getting some new wraps / shawls in the coming weeks (photos of those to follow). You notice I have been purposively avoiding using the C word!… but all this lovely Christmas stock would make fantastic pressies!
The idea was that our son and his fiancé went away on their holidays for a week while we baby sit our furry grandchild!! We thought (rather naively) that we would have Bailey in the gallery with us during the day… what could go wrong?… he’s adorable! He’ll be a great selling gimmick, we thought!
Well, that plan lasted all of an hour before there had to be a rapid change of plan and Serena would paint at home with her ‘little helper’! Cute as he is, at 8 months old he was just a tad too boisterous for our little gallery space. Much happier at home…
Things will be back to normal next week as Bailey heads back home. We will certainly miss the wee man!
