Private View at Bailiffgate
Across the mezzanine.
Three small paintings in a display case.
Three Prague Tram paintings.
A while ago the Private View for the Bailiffgate show was changed from last Tuesday night , when the weather was as decent as we've come to expect for summer, to Friday when the forecast was for torrential rain and flood warnings were out for just about everywhere you could think of. As a result the turnout of guests was not all we might have wished for. Even the solid gold I'll be theres I've come to count on called me up and apologised for their absence.
Luckily, the Bailiffgate Museum is run entirely by volunteers who do a sterling job and many of them turned up to help dispel any feeling of abandonment. The chairman made a splendid speech and overall we had a good time.
In keeping with the zeitgeist, my camera batteries failed on me and I had to keep taking them out and turning them round just to take these four photographs.
