Well, after a bit of a break from my art it was back with a bang last week as it was the Equestrienne exhibition that was held by myself and 5 other equestrian artists in Cheltenham. The Private View on the Wednesday night was quieter than we had anticipated as we invited a lot of people but on talking to people from Cheltenham, the locals tend to stay indoors during the Gold Cup racing festival and the racegoers tend to head straight to the pub after the races. Still, it wasn't a bad attendance, with Desi Dillingham, the president of the British Horse Society opening it for us. Because we rented the gallery space for the week, we had to be in attendance and it was great meeting the customers and hearing everyone's thoughts. Not many originals were sold but I did sell a few prints and cards which is always a bonus. We're hoping to hold other exhibitions together and our next venture might be at the racecourse for The Open in November so I need to work on producing more racing paintings this year to target the right audience. All our art was very different from eachother but worked extremely well together and we received many complimentary comments throughout the week. I look forward to our next exhibition together and hope to see you there!
