And the woodwork outside is weatherproof for winter.. with some bright new colours to spice up the darkening evenings.
With all the redecortation finally done, we can at last think of setting a date to re-open the doors! ... watch this space...

Those that came to visit will have noticed that we've been playing around with the layout. Debbie's studio is now in the end of the gallery space, and Martin is now renting a studio. This is a 'considered' move to further build on the creativity at the Lund, to bring painting to the fore while retaining much, but not all, of the exhibition space in the gallery. (And it means that when you come to see the gallery, you get a chance to sneak a peak at Debbie's studio... )
The summer solstice is on the horizon, and the late daylight is magical, so I'm off out to sup a beer... and think about building a fence for those chickens...

Our next event at the gallery will be 9th/10th 16th/17th June - as part of North Yorkshire Open Studios Debbie and resident artist Martin Huxter will be opening their studio doors. Worth checking ot the NYOS website to check out what is going on - it's a major county-wide event not to be missed.

Like last year we have chosen to be open 'by appointment only' for the first part of next year. Debbie has had yet another succesful year, both in Lund Gallery and elsewhere, and so needs to take some time out to spend some time out and about on the moors and to create her own work. So if you would like to come and visit the gallery, please do call at least a day in advance to make sure we'll be in....

We reached new heights in decadance ; I have recently built an outdoor hot tub with views out across the fields:
A new lease of life for an old cast iron bath that has been sitting behind one of the barns. Needs a bit of trial and error though - if the fire gets a bit too lively it's a case of jumping out before scorching one's tender bits!
More good news - Debbie has been celebrating a succesful affordable art fair over the last few days... great to be taking her work out to a wider audience...

Having cleared out the weeds from the veg plot, I went searching for things that you can plant at this time of year (my veg planting does not get planeed in advance!) - so this winter we'll be eating mainly turnips and spinach. More spinach - it always seems to be time to plant spinach.
And on the topic of food - the gallery is getting a major make-over in time for the next show - the Joy of Food - opening September the 25th. It's going to be a major event in this year's calendar, with a special 'foody' preview...
