Opening Night – Portraits of Rhiwbina @ The Art Workshop

The prints arrived at 1.00pm and I was lucky enough to have the expert opinion of my lecturer David Lewis from Cardiff Metropolitan University came along to help lay out the grids.  We finished just after 3.00pm leaving a few hours before the official opening at 6.00pm.

After all the preparation the opening night finally arrived.  Without knowing how many and if any people would turn up by 5.45pm my concerns evaporated!  There was such an amazing response with some staying for a few minutes and others most of the evening.  There was a fabulously positive vibe and I couldn’t have hoped for a better night. I was given some lovely flowers by Leah Millinship, one of my portraits, as she was unable to make it on the night, plus a bouquet from Martha & Genevieve from the Art Workshop and my family.  My house resembles a florists shop and I’ve run out of vases!  All the hard work was worth it, and I’m so grateful for people giving up their time to come and view the exhibition.  Just overwhelming x
