One Year On...

Sometimes there’s cause for a small celebration of a milestone, and sometimes it’s nice to celebrate with some friends instead of in your own head…

…so I’d like to share with you that today it’s one whole year since the opening of my Exhibition at Indulgence Cafe in Derby!

It was only supposed to be a three-month exhibition, but somewhere along the line, the owners changed their minds and decided that they were happy to continue the Exhibition indefinitely. Which actually means that I now have a gallery of approximately 20 RB prints hanging in a busy and spacious cafe!

It’s an opportunity to thank the Indulgence team (especially Annalisa and Jodie), and RB for making this possible in a practical way…

…but mostly, I’d like to thank YOU!!!!!!! for your support – right from the beginning when you helped me choose which photos to include up until now. I still use your responses to my photographs to help me select new works for the gallery, as I find it really difficult to judge my own work from an entirely objective point of view! I am genuinely grateful for all of your comments and favourites and for making me feel connected to – and embraced as part of – an amazing Artistic Community, even though I live so far away from most of you!!

Thank you!

Mieke :)

    Well after seeing the prints on display I’m not surprised they want them to be a regular exhibition! Congratulations, Mieke, and here’s to the next few years! :)

  • Thanks, Mel… and thank you for all your advice and guidance. I have benefitted so much from your experience and expertise and generosity … but it’s your friendship I value most (of course!). xoxoxo

    wonderful! do you change them around? or sell some and replace?

  • Sell and replace with new ones – most of them have only had one print made, but a couple of them have been put up twice :) :) :) And occasionally I switch them over (because some of them are also in the hallway at the Windmill Cafe – also owned by the same people). Thank you, Soxy!!!
