Stephen will be exhibiting at the Parallax Art Fair, Chelsea Town Hall, London in October 2017. Tickets can be ordered online and are free.
Stephen offered two "Quick Watercolour Sketching from Life" workshops as part of 'The Isles of Scilly Festival'. This lasted for the whole of May 2016, starting with the World Championship Gig Weekend and continuing throughout the month with extensive arts and culture events. Both workshops were fully booked and the participants all thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
We can hardly believe that 2016 went so fast! It doesn't seem five minutes since the end of October and the departure of the last visitors from our three apartments. Last spring, we retained our VisitEngland Four Star GOLD awards for all three apartments. Despite the sometimes patchy weather, we had a good season and are already fully booked from mid April to the end of September 2017. Once again, we'll be looking forward to welcoming back many guests who have now become friends over the years.
In mid December 2016, we spent five nights in Lisbon which was a return trip, having visited several years ago. Again we were blessed with lovely weather, visiting Sintra, the Castle of the Moors, the Oceanarium and doing a LOT of walking. Stephen completed two ink sketches during our holiday while I wandered round taking photographs. Our small penthouse apartment had a balcony with stunning views from the fourth floor across the river and the bridge. It was very relaxing ...
Winter into spring has been very mild this year and the islands are already bursting with greenery and flowers. Stephen's winter work in the apartments is mainly centred around a major refurbishment of Golden Eagle's kitchen as well as various maintenance, repairs and renewals. Serica will have new armchairs and Slippen will have a new sofa. Lois is currently working on a new website which will enable online purchasing of Stephen's prints so please bear with us during this transition.
Don't forget that we're on Twitter as GlandoreScilly and on Facebook as Glandore Gallery on Scilly - both of which are frequently updated.
