Thanking everyone.

On Thursday, December 3rd, between  6 and 8pm the Gallery is holding a reception which will include a free raffle...wonderful prizes from a signed and framed John Knapp Fisher print, a David Tress book through to bundles of art cards with the sincere hope that everyone can leave  with a gift.

The heating will be on, the wine ready to pour and all the snacks waiting, so please come along and just incase you are interested, there will be a beautiful large John Knapp Fisher water colour available plus a number of new artists showing work at the gallery for the first time to give a taster of what's happening in 2016.. 

Christmas show opening...it went well.

The very heavy rain at 9am realised that there was going to be trouble if it didn't stop by 10.30 ....so it did. The sun came out and so a very busy day began, many people called and by 2pm mince pie reinforcements were sent for. 

It was a very good day for sales and the confidence in showing work that is not of the local view variety continues to grow. 

A general feeling by mid afternoon that the initial plan to not follow the path of being another local art gallery is beginning to pay off and it is also good to be able, after nearly two years, to feel that people who regularly call, have not seen it all before. 

November 7th 2015

Is the start of the Christmas exhibition. 

This year the Gallery will have both new artists and many new works by those who regularly contribute, Neil Canning, James Mackeown, Jill Cope and Anne Kerr to name just a few who will add new and one new artist sending interesting work is Oliver Gaiger. 

Oliver was born in Uganda, lived in many countries including the Falkland Islands and now resides in the Cambrian mountains here in Wales, his work is well worth seeing. 

Ceramicist James Campbell has sent some more beautiful work and these besides the work of Craig Underhill and Karen Shapley alongside many others will  as always give a very interesting complimentary addition to the pictures on show. 

Jane Corsellis, an artist of considerable stature who shows at the Late November is recovering from a recent operation, we wish her well and look forward to seeing her next time she visits Pembrokeshire. 

Friday night

An overwhelming success, plenty of people, several sales and a lot of wine consumed. 

This was the first friday night preview and any afternoon nerves were quickly dispelled as several people called before 6pm and many stayed until nearly 9pm.

Saturday morning, and James Campbell , the ceramicist, called  with some beautiful new work, many people enquire about his larger work....well, its arrived. James stayed for coffee and talked about his recent show in France and his forthcoming one at the Restless Gallery in Haye on Wye. 

A good few days but no rusting as a Christmas show is not too far away.

Nice visitors and a visit

As preparations get underway for Fridays opening of Theo Crutchley-Mack and Ross Loveday,  it must not be overlooked to mention that Ross called at the gallery a week or two ago as he was in the area, it was good to see him and once again he was very complimentary about the progress of the gallery. A very pleasant time spent in his company and  last week another person who called and spoke well of the gallery was John Russell Taylor, art critic of the Times newspaper. With a promise to get the tea of his choice he gave a firm assurance that he'd call again soon.

On Sunday 20th Sept. A trip to the Bristol Art Fair was arranged and as with the visit to Luke Piper the journey was swift and an interesting day was had. Walking around and seeing other galleries gave a confident signal that this would be a healthy step for the future of the gallery.

Remember Theo...

Well, he's back. This time in abundance, no time for rusting Theo, and on the 25th September at 6pm you will be able to see how this extremely able young artist is progressing. 

With Ross Loveday work on the ground floor and Theo upstairs where a short time lapse film of how he works and paints will be shown. 

A good exhibition Is on it's way and a more detailed blog on both artists will follow in a day or two..

Maurice sleeping?

Of course not, this was a snapshot of a lovely talk about Ronald Lowe, a very successful day and a wonderful turnout of people. Thank you to everybody who arranged this superb retrospective show, and especially Julie, wife of the late Ronald Lowe. 

Visual Elements

As work begins to arrive for this show, this is a short note to say that the work is both interesting and varied, ...Ronald Lowe who has sadly passed away will be fondly remembered by many as the art teacher of Haverfordwest Grammar school but on leaving that post he had an illustrious career as a painter, many works will be on show and a talk will be given about his life by Maurice Sheppard, also a product of that school and now a very well known name in the U.K. Art world. 

Chris Prout, a painter originating from Swansea but now living in the midlands makes his debut at the Late November Gallery and his work has been highly regarded whilst waiting patiently upstairs for the 29th Aug. 

The third artist involved in this exhibition will be Grant Sonnex, not a painter but a furniture maker, he like both Chris  and Ron is very highly regarded in his field of work and as a first step away from pictures and ceramic based exhibits the Gallery is delighted he has chosen to display his work at the Late November. 

Touching base

On Wednesday morning  a surprise visitor appeared , none other than James Mackeown and his wife Marie . They were in the U.K. for a few days and called at the gallery to see the summer show and to say that more work will soon be on it's way once he returns to France. 

With the Farrow and Ball package recently arrived and sitting restlessly on the store room floor it is now only a matter of time before it's contents change the look and feel of the downstairs gallery space..

Nice days, nice people.

As summer progresses and the days towards the next planned exhibition get nearer, it is perhaps a good time to mention that a few subtle changes are taking place in the gallery, a new wall has appeared and it's not going to be white for long, at the moment it holds a beautiful Canning mono print and some of the other London suite printmakers such as Anthony Frost and Clyde Hopkins....around the corner, that wall is also white (but don't hold your breath) there is a large Basil Beattie print of underground tunnels...very different and interesting.

Apart from these prints, there is a continually changing mix of Artists work and one that will catch the eye are two portraits by Jill Cope, only delivered on Saturday so please keep calling as most weeks see several new pieces of work on display to keep replacing sold items.

After mid August two new artists will begin to show at the Gallery, so, as Autumn approaches and lights begin to appear again, the Late November Gallery will continue to introduce new work and new Artists  on ever changing walls....(thank you Farrow and Ball)...
