And so, can I remember how to hang a show? It has been ten months since we had to close and lockdown. After some careful check out of the space (that we know so well anyway) and making sure we can control everything in terms of numbers coming in and out, we decided to pop in. it is an open door on to a very wide street situation and we will be on the door letting no more than a couple of people in at one time. I just need to hang some art on a gallery wall and let people in to see it, I’ve been painting like mad all year.
