For anyone venturing down to the capital in the deep south, Spring Fling's spectacularly successful show has been extended a further week - good work all round team Spring Fling!
Spring Fling’s first ever London exhibition has been such a success that it has been extended for a further week.
James Harvey, owner of the James Harvey British Art gallery in Chelsea, has been overwhelmed by the positive reaction to the exhibition of work by 22 visual artists and sculptors from across Dumfries and Galloway.
He said: “It’s been quite phenomenal. Our visitors have been very impressed by the quality of the work, so we decided to extend the exhibition for a further week to let more people come and enjoy it.
“We have sold works from across the full range – sculpture, original prints, watercolours and oils. London buyers are tending to stick to artists they know at the moment, so to bring in a whole new range of unfamiliar artists and have such success is particularly great.”
Among those with work on show at the exhibition are Harry Potter book cover illustrator Clare Melinsky and high profile award winner Patricia Cain.
The exhibition, which now runs until Friday 2 May, was also used to promote local produce and also to highlight Dumfries and Galloway as a place to visit, particularly during the main Spring Fling visual art and craft open studios event from 24-26 May.
