A Passion For Colour in Dartmouth

Phew that was a busy time! My exhibition in Dartmouth is hung at last and both Peri and myself are feeling very pleased.
Just the christmas madness to contend with now. :)
Monday morning we arrived in Dartmouth to the sight of this enormous yacht in the harbour. I don't know who it belongs to but with a quick google I found it's called the Lady Lara and is worth £150,000,000, crikey! What we did do was to take the car ferry over the river Dart and Peri took some pics on the way...

Our exhibition is at the Flavel Art Centre, not far from where these pics were taken. We set to work with the hanging straight away hoping to get some time at the end of the day to look around the galleries in Dartmouth.

 After a very long and exhausting day, time beat us to it so no gallery visits for us this time but it was a lovely day that we both enjoyed so it was well worth the effort.

Peri and her beautiful paintings.

And mine.

Light was fading and it was time to look for something to eat. We spied the yacht in the distance all lit up. 

It looked unreal!

When we'd almost finished, I made some short videos. Back at home yesterday, I pieced them together and here's the final little film.:

Bonjour chère amie,

Un grand merci pour le partage de cette charmante vidéo.

Une exposition en duo qui va attirer beaucoup de monde...
Je vous souhaite un vif succès et de belles rencontres.
Il est bon, une fois l'accrochage achevé, de pouvoir admirer l'ensemble de son travail.
Une très belle harmonie d'oeuvres. Bravo l'artiste !

Joyeuses fêtes à vous et tous ceux que vous aimez.

Gros bisous ❄︎

Your exhibition looks fantastic. Your pieces are larger than I thought and beautifully presented. I wish you every success and many sales. I recognise several pieces as particular favourites and am sure they will be off soon to New homes.

Your joint exhibition looks stunning and I wish you all the best with it!

I can't resist a challenge, so I had a google for the lovely yacht myself - it apparently belongs to an Alexander Machkevitch, from Kazakhstan who owns Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation and who is worth 2 billion dollars. Well, you'd have to be a billionaire really...his previous yacht was called Lady Lara too, and he bought this version this year, 2015. You're welcome. :-)

hanging shows is usually a LOT of work! It looks wonderful. As does your journey to it. Wishing you success. Lovely holidays to you!

I love Dartmouth. Your exhibition looks wonderful, wish that I could have attended. That is some yacht! And thanks to Gretel for doing her bit of sleuthing and sharing the information about it too. x
