‘Inspired’ Begins!

Just a brief note, this one, to say that the ‘Inspired‘ exhibition at the Ashton Court Estate (Bristol) opens this morning. Hours are 10.00-16.30 daily, with the show closing next Sunday afternoon (25th).

All are welcome and, if you’re in the area at all over the next eight-days, it’s definitely worth a look. Not only for that, but also, the grounds and mansion itself are worth a look, if you haven’t visited before.

Just follow the signs in to the Visitor Centre and the exhibition space is upstairs in the Hayloft Gallery. Along with all the fine furniture, there is some art and carved/sculpture work.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any photographs for you at the minute as the layout was still being organised when I dropped my two pieces off yesterday morning. I should be there Thursday and Friday though and I’ll update this thread/add a new post as necessary.

(I’m quietly confident that I may find a buyer for my arm chair and side table… Watch this space! ;-))

Thanks for reading.

As of 6pm, the punters will start rolling in…
