N21 Festival : The Summer Exhibition 2013
The Green, Winchmore Hill, Saturday 17th August 2013 10.00 - 6.00pm
An outdoor Art event on The Green - what were we thinking ? Well it does get to that stage on occasions, but we have to say that despite the blustery, absolutely freezing and rainy conditions there is no question that the event was a huge success !!
We didn't expect so many artists would come to an untried event in the middle of August , when half the world seemed to be away, but they did and what talented people they were !
We estimate that approximately £5,000 of works were sold on the day and although not everyone sold work, the comments, atmosphere and visitors were overwhelmingly positive.
Naturally, with an open Exhibition, there was a huge range of different types and standards of artworks and crafts, but we have to say that overall the standard was excellent and that proved itself in the work sold. With all such events its not just the purchases on the day that count, as having seen the work, it may be that a visitor comes back for a commission or referral in the future. In fact we know this happens as we did it ourselves !
We'd like to thank the musical artists that provided entertainment during the Exhibition - That Blue Patch, George Papakyriacou, Stella and The Stars,
We'd also like to thank the 54 Artists and Crafts people that exhibited and for the hundreds of people that braved the somewhat inclement weather to come and see just what we'd managed to put on, on a shoe-string budget.
We were cursing the weather on the day, but when on the following Saturday it poured down torrentially all day, well, we thought we hadn't done too badly - The English Summer - what can you do ?
