Exhibiting at The Tavern !

The big day arrived ! Yesterday was the preview of the MESCH exhibition at the new Tavern Gallery in Meldreth. It is the old Railway Tavern which David Chappell has turned into a really delightful and friendly art gallery. Sadly Vanda Campbell was not able to make the it, but the rest of us were there and an awful lot of lovely people who came to support us, including Mary Cozens-Walker and her daughter Kate and her granddaughter - we were very honoured that she found the time to come. The lovely Sandra came from London and stayed the night, despite the terrible state of the house - as not much work has been done in the past week! I am on a big promise to do some tidying up after Easter.
And guess what - I sold three pieces of work! I was delighted, it is so nice when other people like the work you have produced enough to BUY it - what a compliment is that! Gina Ferrari came, which was lovely of her because she is very busy at the moment, and George & Brenda from next door (George sold FIVE big paintings at the gallery last month and has been asked to go back next March - terrific) Lots of neighbours and friends and other artists and husbands and daughters so it was a really friendly atmosphere, with wine and nibbles to help the evening along.

This is the window hanging made by Liz Evans. I was absolutely exhausted when I got home - we were there from 5 until 9 so it was a long time to be standing in high heels.

Here is another view. Well, I wonder how it will go over the weekend? The Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and closed between 1 and 1.30 - also closed Mondays and Tuesdays. It is situated right near the railway station in Meldreth and the exhibition is on throughout April. In the meantime, I have the family here for Easter and am amazed again at the height of my grandsons (and their appetites). Where did those dear little baby boys go to?


  1. Looks like a gallery worth checking out. Hope the exhibition is a huge success for all of you.

    Happy Easter

  2. That looks like a lovely space Mavis and that window hanging is very beautiful. Have a lovely break over Easter.

    BTW I will be participating in COS this year - perhaps we will finally meet!

  3. It is a lovely exhibition Mavis and it was good to see you. Well done on the sales. Your flowers in the church look lovely too!

  4. Oooh, I must pop along - only 10 minutes away!
