A Magical Night at the Private View of Fabulous Beasts

On Friday, Janec and I hosted a Private View/Party at Powderham Castle to celebrate our Fabulous Beasts exhibition. It was a magical, memorable night!

City Steam Jazz provided upbeat music to create a wonderful ambiance as people explored the castle at leisure, discovering the art work.  Of course there were drinks, and excellent party food, mainly created by Janec’s Mum (Sarah) who is also showing her work in the castle chapel. It was fantastic (and weird) to do something so wonderfully fun and normal, after 18 months of social distancing.

Janec wore an elaborate corsetted bridal outfit, 6 inch heels and, on his head, a stuffed magpie atop a white wig. (FAB-U-LOUS Darling!) His Mum also dressed up as the mother of the bride – the Van Veen family certainly know how to party!

Not to be outdone, I made a necklace of large plastic animals which made me feel slightly less conventional and boring!
