A Private Viewing

I went to an exhibition at the weekend in a super little private gallery in Norfolk called The Capsule.

The very talented and very lovely daughters of my dear friends John & Kate were invited to exhibit some of their fabulous work in The Capsule and it is their exhibition that I went to see.

Jess and Millie are also the grandaughters of Pam and Neal French’s and you can see how they are so talented. It clearly runs in the family.

Their work is brilliant and hugely diverse.

It is done with nearly everything you can think of to create with – pens, pencils, crayons, paper, cameras, ipads, paint, clay and many more. I really think they could make art with just about anything.

Both girls are hugely busy and enthusiastic artists. Millie loves photography and Jess loves ipad art but their talents spread across everything they try.

The interest was phenomenal and I hope it has encouraged them to carry on with even more lovely work.

They were so professional in their dealings with people, it was wonderful to watch and I’m sure they learned some valuable lessons.

I imagine it would be quite daunting for such young talent to put themselves out there but they seemed to take it very much in their stride and rose to the task wonderfully.

Their talent is endless!

It looked like the girls had a great time and there were lots of visitors to chat to about their work.

The interest was keen and a lot of their pieces were sold.

Their sales were across the exhibition; some originals and some limited edition prints which will be despatched to their supporters soon. The sculptures were just about sold out and I don’t think they went home with much.

I am myself, the the proud owner of a few of their pieces and I am delighted with them.

So, people, you saw it here first!

Watch this space because I don’t think this is the last you will see of these super talented young ladies.
