Busy time exhibition @fishslabgallery Whitstable 24th – midday Tuesday 31st August, 2021.

Update :Paintings have gone to new homes, cards and bookmarks went well too. It’s a lovely little gallery space and so well organised by the group of artists who run it. The postponed #WhitstableOysterFestival was happening on Monday Bank Holiday, crash helmets were the order of the day. Very busy despite grey weather. I really enjoyed talking to friends and visitors to the gallery. If you’re nearby do pop in to say hello to the next exhibitors.


Exhibition over, next one in Whitstable at the end of the month, @TheFishslabGallery August 24th – 31st. Thank you everyone who came in to @thehalpernpop #Rochester and chatted, bought cards and bought artwork. These are some of the ones sold….


Ruthlessly sorting out the browser and selecting the paintings for the exhibition in Rochester starting next Wednesday at the Halpern Pop, at the beautiful newly restored Conservancy Building (great bar and cafe).

Start.
