Sale Arts Trail 2015 Day Two

July 12, 2015

I’m really enjoying taking part in the Sale Arts Trail this year, one day down and one to go today. I must say there’s a lovely ‘buzz’ about the people coming to view the work and from the other artists taking part. It’s friendly, people are interested, they ask questions and are walking around with a myriad of brown paper bags containing all manner of artistic goodies : )

My neighbours Nell Smith and Jo Lavelle, are selling screen printed illustrations and jewellery in a lovely cafe called Coasters on Northenden Road. My fellow artist in Minikin Emporium is Scott Millar, who has a lovely selection of (sadly extinct), mounted bird- heads. Pun not intended but they’ve been so popular that Scott experienced a ‘rush’ of sales yesterday which has made his birds extinct once again ! I think he’ll be taking commission orders today.

Scott, who can be contacted through his Etsy site here, has a new arrival which premièred yesterday… the Dodo !

I must say he’s been very well received.

Finally a brief look at my work, yesterday pre sales. I have a few gaps to fill today to make it look presentable again : )

Pop into Minikin Emporium, paint your own mug or pot, have a browse or just say hello … we’re a friendly bunch. Open 10 til 5 today or check out the exhibition at the Waterside Arts Centre until August 9th.

    Glad to hear of all the buzz on the Sale Arts Trail. I know how much you thrive in the company of fellow artists and art-lovers.

      You’re sooo right Wallace, and I do feel artistically rejuvenated for their great company this weekend too. Good news all round 😀
