April 12th, Opening Day -17 April 2014
In 2013 When David Messum called to discuss an exhibition with David Tress he became the 2nd person in a fortnight to comment on the superb location of these premises, the other being John Russell Taylor the art critic of the Times. Well, one year later this very location has been turned into a first class gallery space with an opening day so elegantly managed and run that no one who called could fault it.
Morning coffee, afternoon tea and wine was served throughout before concluding not with a dinner party but where the day had begun some 12 hrs earlier, floors mopped and carpets hoovered, not by a cleaning Agency but by the same person who had cleaned the windows at 7am and spent the day serving drinks and chatting with guests.
It may be early days but both Angela Flowers and Lynn Strover would have a lot of respect for this new gallery owner.
