Our exhibition ‘Grange Artists @Denbies’ had been open only two hours before the first artwork was bought by a member of the public. Over the week, we sold nearly £4,000 worth of paintings, prints and textile artworks.
Our Visitors’ Book is now teeming with praise – ‘Fantastic,’ ‘Inspiring’, ‘a Joy’, ‘Life affirming’!
One person wrote, ‘What a beautifully uplifting experience’ and another visitor summed up with the words, ‘I wish I could buy them all!’
The exhibition was officially opened by artist, Julie Hoyle, the founder of Ochre Print Studio and Ochre PrintAble. Julie now has her own organisation working with the National Trust among others. She has run workshops for Grange arts in the past and everyone was delighted when she bought a print of John Lennon drawn by Gary (see photo)
