News update 29 05 09

    Ran mine from18th to the 29th so have now finished. just now in fact. Was a reasonable success too. Met a lot of lovely people.  The only neighbours that troubled themselves to visit however were Sylvie and Bob , it was nice to see you both,  and Margaret from Oxfam, who lives further afield.
   Friends from California  also very pleased to see you Maggie Joe [Sean Connery ] and Janie.
   Alison from Palo Alto Ca. too.
   89 folk turned up  and nobody gave me a bad crit except Dave who said everything was naff except the Kite Surfer pic.
   Only sold a couple [thanks Jane] and had one commission but sold all my little prints, and a lot of postcards and notelets.
   My wife sold nearly all of Doreen H`s chutneys jams and marmalades raising a good sum for the Oakhaven Hospice.
   And the weather was kind.
   All the artists have been selected now, and I am now waiting to be informed that the marquee has been erected [but this will be sometime yet] then the A team will get to work to erect the screens ready for the 25th 26th JULY reception and hanging of the pictures.
   Same as last year... enter the `disabled` car park and carry your works to the ART PAVILION.
   The 27th July is to be avoided please, pics on 25th and 26th  9am to 12 midday.
   Anyway looking forward to seeing you all.
  The teams [of twelve artists] for the three days will know by now and tickets, passes, lunch vouchers etc have been ordered but we won`t get these until much nearer the time..
   That`s it then.                            All the best.
All the best Melvin a good trail.
