Last week I was in Leicester and I visited Leicester Museum where they are hosting a fantastic exhibition of Picasso ceramics.
The collection belongs to Lord and Lady Attenborough, and is dedicated to the  memory of his daughter and grand daughter who died in the Tsunami in Thailand on Boxing Day 2004.
The ceramics really are something. Most of these pieces are beautiful editions, with two completely original pieces made by Picasso – they are worth a visit!

the bowie gallery currently has a little bowl made by Picasso’s muse and model Lydia Corbett, aka Sylvette David. Gotta be worth a flutter!
English Wine Week is being celebrated from May 28 – June 5 and we will be setting up a small exhibition in  Sharpham Winery. Original prints by Hilary Soper and Anita Reynolds, plus one or two other pieces. Sharpham will be celebrating with lots of events this week so do go along and enjoy what’s on offer. I can recommend the al fresco style cafĂ© without any hesitation!

ione rucQuoi solo

the bowie gallery will be hosting a solo exhibition of work by this intriguing artist, in July 2011. Titled SACRIFICE this promises to be a challenging exhiibition.
This show is made up of a selection which include  some of the artist's post-pregnancy imagery and new works which lean towards a large scale installation ‘Sanctae’ she is currently working on. This will be a great opportunity to view pieces that have been exhibited widely in Europe and  London and now for the first time in the South West UK, mostly concerned with body image and perceptions of the female.
SACRIFICES runs from July8 - 16   2011.

It has been a great April - maybe buyers are feeling a bit more relaxed.
Yvonne Coomber pretty one sold towards the end of the week and Alice Leach fabulous Hyena painting this w/e - re assuring that good taste prevails! What is it about art that intrigues us? Whatever it is it's a GOOD thing - it reminds us we are human.
