JULY 14th 2020

WHATS HAPPENING?      My dad last came into the shop on Wednesday  March 11th.  That is 127 days ago!  We have re-started, or rather, I have (Mich’al).

Currently I am processing work in as near as possible as it was before ‘lockdown’ which we have renamed ‘breakdown’.

Ideally, I would prefer you to email me for an appointment (like you might for the dentist!) and I will respond to you and arrange things.  If you can’t do that then, call by on chance.

Opening hours: Tues-Fri 09:00-14:00 and Sat until 12:00

I have made the shop ‘protective’ so we can do things without contact.

These are the email addresses you can use:

alansturk@me.com

rixsonmn@gmail.com

If you prefer to text or call,  my dad’s number is: 07761478625

I have an ambition to mount and sell some interesting prints over the coming months

….watch these pages or the shop window.

 

Jerseys

To get a football or rugby jersey framed up and looking right takes a lot of time.  Below is an example of our work.  Shirt and shorts.  And below that again is a photograph of a few in a Cardiff pub that we did not frame.

Rugby Jerseys

We don’t don’t “Do Things by Halves”  ……..with three jerseys that would be literally difficult.  Oxford Dictionary says of “not doing things by halves” that it implies doing something thoroughly and extravagantly.  Sounds about right!    1200 x 480mm framed in black ash and glazed with cor liner to set the jerseys down about 25mm.

Panoramic Watercolours.

We frequently frame multiple photos in either horizontally or vertically.  This is different; the images are watercolours of South Wales locations.  Length 49 inches and 13 inches height.  Impressive. Framing used is Ash and the mount colour is Antique White.

Bays and Beaches

Two, out of a dozen works from Sian Mcgill.  Both feature Gower places and reflect the limestone and gorse so prevelant.  Acrylic on board with pallet knife and brush application.  Framed in ash with a coat of suitable wash.  Go see more at sianmcgill.com or Sian McGill on facebook.  

Surprise

Mumbles Pier has an area of rooms given over to exhibiting art.

Called Little Stone Gallery (see Facebook).  The show of work by Adrian Hughes is a must-see!  On the opening night as a surprise for him a family brought along their father, a farmer from Lampeter.  Seeing his portrait was some surprise and turned him into the celebrity visitor of the evening.
