What a sober bunch we all are. With the exception of an exhibition of school pupils work, every art launch I’ve ever been to been to has ended up a bit messy due to the punters taking full advantage of the ‘free’ alcohol. However, the ‘not from concentrate’ juice was by far the favourite at our launch last Friday afternoon. I’m pretty sure I spied a couple of the artists having a glass of wine mind you, which you might say is unsurprising.

Despite the lack of alcohol consumed, the event was a great success, and we shared out the remaining buffet in the pub afterwards.

Congratulations to everyone involved.
