Where does all the time go?

The first three months of 2017 have been as busy as ever here at the Green Tree Gallery, so sadly this blog has been rather neglected!

First off was the annual redecoration and spruce up during our January closure before we kicked off 2017 with our popular Annual Art Sale.

In addition to our artists clearing out their studios, we mark down past seasons' stock, which means lots of opportunities for our customers to pick up some great bargains.

Once the decks were cleared of the many arty bargains, it was on to our first exhibition of the year, "To Linger in a Garden Fair", which opened on Saturday.

Glorious sunny weather ensured a jolly mood at our Launch Party on Saturday. Prosecco, canapes and sunshine were the perfect accompaniments for our customers, friends and families whilst they browsed the fantastic art by the featured artists.

Other artists taking part in the exhibition are painter Elda Abramson, printmaker Sophie Elm of Jeff Josephine Designs, painter Min Maude and printmaker Liz Toole.

"To Linger in a Garden Fair" runs until 6th May.
