Newsletter - Summer 2007

Welcome to the 2nd newsletter of 2007.


Editors comment (or Syd's Ramblings)

Finally - the rain has stopped.

I hope that none of you were flooded out in the heavy rains that we recently experienced.

The factory flooded for the fourth time in just as many weeks and I must admit that this time I accepted defeat and just watched as the water came in.

Fortunately we have now dried out and a week of sunshine has lifted the spirits.

Anyway enough of my ramblings - on with the newsletter.

This edition of the newsletter contains the usual items but also includes a Members Notice Board.

This is your space to make any announcements you may have.


Members Notice Board

Nicola Hurst Designer Jewellery

Our first End of Summer Show will take place from the 8th September 2007 and run until the end of October and will exhibit exciting new work from Designer Jewellers such as Clara B, Alex Williamson and Sarah Lindsay. Expect colourful mixed media pieces and resin jewellery from Clara; unique and contemporary silver pieces inset with soft coloured leather from Alex (see photo); and light, bright laminated acrylic in cool, vibrant colours from Sarah. An exclusive private viewing will take place on the evening of Friday the 7th. September also brings new work from popular local designer and maker, Annie McGee. Annie, who has sold her work in the Gallery since its opening, exhibits a whole new collection this autumn, launching with a private view night on the 21st. The beads are sourced in Venice, where the best glass beads in the world are produced. The qualities of the beads inspire Annie's designs, their colour and texture driving her creativity. Annie has now discovered another source of glass beads from the Salviati factory where contemporary beads are made, some delicate and foiled others large and vibrant. We are looking forward to showing this new collection which Annie is very enthusiastic about. October mark's our 1-year anniversary and we shall be celebrating with an open evening on Friday 26th from 6.30-8.30. We do hope you can join us, come along, try things on and get your wish-list started in time for the festive season! Our Winter Showcase begins on the 17th of November and will see new guest designers in the gallery for the first time. We'll be showing the 'Encased' range from Stitch and Silver as well as stocking our usual range of fantastic gifts, Christmas decorations, Christmas cards and stocking fillers! More exhibitors to be confirmed. For more information about any of our events feel free to pop into the gallery and ask or call us 01752 228 000.
