Tea time is always an important part of the day here and Wednesday afternoon was especially enjoyable with a surprise visit by Bruce Ingman who arrived in perfect time, fold up bicycle in hand, as the kettle whistled into life.
We find hobnobs of great inspiration, and whilst partaking as such we enjoyed hearing Bruce's lively anecdotes of working with the great Allan Ahlberg on their terrifc new book Pencil. Being no such things as a free tea we swiftly put Bruce to work signing copies of this excellent new publication for our bookshelves here at the gallery. The icing on the cake was Bruce's kind offer to enter some of this superb original artwork in our forthcoming winter show in November! Clearly this calls for the chocolate-covered digestives.
