MARCH Pinterest Board of the Month

This month I’ve picked a Pinterest board titled Gallery Wall created by Catherine Binns.

As an artist, obviously I’m a huge advocate of filling your home with as much art as possible. I love a good gallery wall and think filling a living space in your home with beautiful artwork is a fantastic way to make your house unique to you.

Filling my home with lots of art is something I am gradually trying to do myself but it’s not always as easy as it looks. I’d really love to create a gallery wall alongside the staircase like the image below but in reality it actually feels like quite a big challenge. You need to have quite a large number of framed prints just to begin with, and then comes arranging them. This Pinterest board is a great one for inspiration and ideas on how to create your own amazing gallery wall!

Head on over to Pinterest and have a good peruse of this gorgeous board here. Just don’t blame me if you fall into the bottomless Pinterest rabbit hole of dream homes!

Summer Exhibition at Grain Barge

 

Yesterday I had the pleasure of hanging some of my framed prints in the beautiful Bristol venue, Grain Barge. It’s the first solo exhibition I have put on for a little while so it was exciting to hang some of my newer designs for 2018 together with some older ones. The venue is a barge converted into a restaurant and bar as you may be able to guess from the name! Run by the same team as Tobacco Factory on North Street, they boast a gorgeous locally sourced menu and amazing views across Bristol marina which can be enjoyed from the glass walled bar area as well as the top deck!

The venue makes for an ideal setting for my work as it is very light filled and full of rustic charm since the interior is largely made up of reclaimed materials. Love having a natural wooden wall as a backdrop to the main grid of work shown above rather than the usual white walls I’m used to in gallery spaces.

All artwork exhibited in there is available for sale and includes nine of my giclée print designs all framed and ready to go straight on your own walls at home! If you always find it a struggle to get prints framed after buying them, this is the perfect opportunity to save yourself the hassle. The exhibition is on until August 14th so why not grab a pint in the sun, and maybe some dinner too, and have a good nosey at the show!
