show's over...

the advent exhibition closed on sunday. spent most of sunday evening and then yesterday taking art off walls and bubble-wrapping it; pulling picture hooks out of boards, sanding and repainting; mooching about tidying the place up; nursing a bad back with hot water bottles and feeling a bit melancholic...

left bank suddenly looks very big and empty. still beautiful, but a bit stark and barren without the art in it.

it's been brilliant - it's taken me way out of my comfort zone, i was so proud of what gav and i and all the contributing artists achieved in there... huge thanks to everyone involved...

It did all look absolutely wonderful. Sorry to have missed it (too many weekend commitments). You're quite right to be proud of what you have done.

hi moira,

thanks for the encouragement! one of the things that inspired me to think the advent show was possible was seeing what you and steve have done downstairs at number 40...

if we do advent next year, i'll make sure that your on the list for the private view!

merry christmas!
