Fabulous Beasts Show – Opens Today (and almost ready!)

Well we’ve finally made it – art set up yesterday at Powderham Castle, ready to open today. Janec and I are very happy with how it all looks in the stunning castle surroundings – we agree it’s actually a far better outcome than if we’d used the planned exhibition space. This way, we are able to make connections between the art and items in the castle itself.

The castle opening dates have changed yet again (very hard to keep up!)


Here are a few photos from yesterday: (Sorry I’ve not been able to to place them in a logical order)

    Thank you for posting all the photos! It shows so much about the space and how well the pieces work in that space. I must admit that Sir Timothy Tortoise is a favorite of mine. It not only is great art but whimsical as well!

    Hi Jane
    It’s an awesome space to stage an exhibition! I’m so glad you like Sir Timothy – I’m not sure if everyone will ‘get him’ but I’m pleased with him. And I have ideas for some more whimsy!!
