April has come very quickly and we're looking forward to - and making preparations for - the Open Studios Ayrshire event at the end of the month. The official event is on the weekend of the 26th / 27th April, but we've chosen to open the studio, here in Kirkmichael, for another couple of days. We'll be open from 10am till 4pm from Friday 25th until Monday 28th April just in case anyone finds it difficult to get here over the weekend. Nevertheless, we're expecting most of the visitors to be here on Saturday and Sunday. There will be pictures of all kinds, some prints and plenty of cards for sale and if you are interested in a print that we don't have in stock, you can also place an order on the day. But if you just want to come and have a look then you'll be made very welcome!
We never get quite as many as the big venues in or near Ayr, but if the weather is good, it's a nice drive out to the village and to the venues beyond. And you can get a good light lunch with delicious home baking in our local community cafe, just along the road - or something more substantial in our beautifully renovated pub nearby. Both venues are also gearing up to offer hospitality to visitors!
We'll be blogging from time to time about Alan's work, what he's working on and what's for sale. Watch this space for news of forthcoming exhibitions too!
