Saturday saw the successful opening of our new show – An Edinburgh View – thanks to all of the people who turned out. The show comprises artists who use Edinburgh as their inspiration shown alongside some new and regular gallery artists.
Today saw the opening of the new Alfons Bytautas exhibition at Gallery TEN. This is a show of new works on paper by the Master printmaker. The day started with snow and showers and continued throughout the opening so we would like to thank all those who braved the elements and got along to the opening making it a great success. Thankyou.
We have just received a beautiful glass panel made by David Kaplan and Annica Sandstrom. This panel is made from blown cylinders by David that are subsequently fused and kiln formed by Annica combining to make this free standing glass panel.
We have been asked on several occasions to explain the meaning of the P/P marking on the Barbara Rae print “Overberg”. It stands for ‘Printers Proof’ and is the notation given to a print which is signed by the artist and given to the master printer who was involved in the technical process of actually making the print. This fantastic print is currently available from Gallery TEN. The print image is very painterly and contains an estimated 30 or more printed colours in the final edition. Made in 1997 in an edition of 40 the edition is long since sold out, so this is a great opportunity to acquire a copy of this beautiful print.
Last Saturday we had our first authors event. This was a children’s story time with readings from authors Catherine Rayner and Alice Melvin. They kindly read from their publications and also drew a few pictures for the kids that came along. Big thanks to them and all those who made it along. Gallery TEN will do more of this sort of event as and when we have then opportunity.
