Alchemy is a treasure trove of retro and rustic antiquities situated in East street in Ashburton. Number 22, Tel: 07912649132. The proprietor Sean Breen has been supporting local artist for many years. I have a mini exhibition of work in the first floor gallery this week, sharing the premises with some unique and original work from several local artists.
The work I have on show is all mounted in antique gilt frames, a blend of contemporary art in gilt frames, which complement the retro nature of the Aladdin’s cave of pieces which fill the shop. The exhibition runs all this week, but be sure to be there this weekend when the Ashburton Contemporary Art Fair starts in earnest. See: http://www.ashburtonartfestival.org for further details. To give you a taster this piece is called, ‘View of the Dart’ evoking an autumnal scene.
Hope you like the show. Open: Friday 6-9 pm. Saturday 10 am to 4pm. G
