Laura paints in the gallery at the front of the building, the room gets some winter sun, which makes it more cheerful. Occasionally we have visitors who come to look at the pots and paintings, but not many of them at this time of year so interruptions are not too frequent.
People who visit our studio and gallery don't always understand that Laura imagines, designs, draws, cuts out, and paints her own work. That it is her art! Well, here are some photos of her coming up with something fresh and new!
Earlier this year the Stuart Street Potter's Co-op agreed to Laura and I becoming joint members of the Co-op and sharing a display area there. This is a really good opportunity for Laura and myself, and her colourful flat work compliments my more subdued round pots rather well! Laura's exhibition is a "welcoming" exhibition for Laura as a new Co-op member.
At the Co-op Laura sells greetings cards printed from her paintings and drawings. Also she sells smaller more craft orientated pieces, such as Christmas decorations and hanging birdies and hearts, all painted on wood.
For this exhibition in the Co-op window she has painted some larger pieces on the theme of Harlequins and Fish. The exhibition runs from Monday 4 July to Saturday 16 July.
We will be having a mid exhibition opening on Saturday 9 July at 11am with yummy refreshments to which readers of this are warmly invited. It will also be a chance to meet the other members of the Co-op and enjoy looking at our diverse range of work, with a hot cup of coffee in your hands. It would be lovely to see you if you can come.
