Recently I was very lucky to be chosen to take part in the first show at Sixteen, with two of my colour portraits. The owner, Andy Owen-Smith, has been very kind and I’ve already learned a lot from him regarding exhibiting art. His renovated gallery is fairly new and situated in Montpellier and is a beautiful light space in a decent, affluent area of Cheltenham. This was a big positive step-up for me as I consider the gallery as a higher level exhibition space than Montpellier Gardens etc. And, as such, it’s geared to showcasing originals of a certain quality and price-range. Exhibiting my art there was a very exciting opportunity for me and something that was on my list of goals. I am very grateful for being a part of the start of an initiative which positively includes unknown artists such as myself.
