Wine, Tapas & Song - Monday 15th April
Originally the village forge, this building has also been a small garage in its time. Now, through the hard work and dedication of Geoff and son Neil driven by the dream and vision of Lin it has been transformed into a beautiful space to display the work of local (and not so local) artists. There are fine paintings, stunningly tactile sculptures, fine-art photographs and ceramics to name just a few types work. How can a small gallery like this display such a wide selection of art forms? Well that's where Lin's skills come to the fore. She has this innate ability to bring things together in such a way that they all complement one another. Take a look at the upper mezzanine. It is set out like a boudoir, with hand-painted Italian scarves and dresses, jewelery and with paintings and photographs hanging on the wall as if in a living space. Lin's attention to detail is superb and it all comes together in such a relaxed and beautiful way. Don't worry though, it's not just for show, all of the pieces are for sale and you'll be surprised at how affordable some of the works are.

Look closely and you'll see Marguerita daisies caught in light from the window trying to peep in. These were Lin's father's favourite flowers, how proud he would have been to see what they have achieved.
