Preparing for Aberglasney



The watercolour above is of Aberglasney the location of our next exhibition. The Mansion House has been restored downstairs now and is well worth a visit. Of course it may be worth waiting until my exhibition is on at the end of August.

Actually it can be quite amusing sat there while we steward our exhibitions. Every twentieth visitor or so walks into the rooms looking straight up at the ceiling. They are quite obviously only interested in the architecture or restoration of the Mansion. There could be free £50 notes on the wall and they still wouldn't see them. This is no criticism I am impressed by the building and the plaster work myself.

Of course then we get asked about the history, the lime content in the plaster, the way the work was undertaken to be honest its easier to answer than keep explaining we know as much as they do as we are only exhibiting there. Actually we have picked up quite a lot of knowledge and Alex in particular is good at going through it. If she gets stuck I help out with a credible if totally made up answer.

So we are preparing for the exhibition now . Alex is in the process of making several hundred cards and ordering prints from the DOT Foundry. I am finalising my paintings.
