Tails of the Unexpected...

Here at The Acorn Gallery we are getting used to surprise visitors but it is still always a pleasure to meet and greet a new guest... and so to our latest visitor...

Paul James is over from Ireland and unexpectedly rang to ask if he could pop over and say hello - well naturally we said yes!!

Paul is famous for his almost photographic portrayal of the natural world, including stunning landscapes and true to life animal portraits, usually with a humourous twist!

Streetwise Charlie is one of his top-selling contemporary pieces and more work will follow in that same vein. We have been fortunate enough to reserve two stunning cow canvases named 'Little Madge' and 'Gorgeous George' which will hopefully be in the gallery soon.

Little Madge

Gorgeous George

If you are interested in Pauls work then let us know and we can let you know when the new pieces arrive!

Just to prove that Paul dd pop in see the image below :-)

Wow! March is here already and we are busy getting ready for Alexander Millars visit to the gallery on the 4th April 2009.

We have ordered in a selection of work which is now ready for framing. The window banner design is finished and ready for printing and we have also finalised the layout for the invitations. Watch out for yours landing on the doormat soon...

We are hoping in the next week to be offered some original pencil sketches and maybe even an original oil to compliment our selection of Limited Edition Prints.

On Friday I was up in Scotland delivering another original oil by Alexander Millar called 'Over The Moon'. Alex really seems to be flying at the moment!

It will compliment the 'Thats Our Boy' original that I took up in October 2008. When I saw it hanging there on the wall it made me smile.

So mark Saturday 4th April in your diary and we hope that you will be able to come along and chat to Alex about his work! Champagne and nibbles will be served and it should be a cracking day!!

I can now reveal who were the top sellers in February. They were:-

1. Sarah Jane Szikora/Peter Smith
2. John Wilson/Caroline Shotton/Jeff Rowland

Well done Peter and Sarah - joint top!!

As I said, excitement is building so don't miss out on a great day!
We'll see you on 4th April!!
