What the duck!!

We recently delivered four framed original paintings to The Showcase Gallery in Richmond, North Yorkshire to be exhibited over the next few months. The Showcase Gallery is dedicated to exhibiting new work from exciting artists based in Yorkshire and North East England. The gallery boasts an eclectic mix of quality originals and prints.

“You could say we have northern roots, but a global spirit.” Lulu & Kelly Fidler  

Over the May bank holiday weekend, with the sun shining, it seemed the perfect time to pop along to the Showcase Gallery with some family after a scenic country road trip. We certainly timed it right as we also happened to fall upon Richmond's Duck Club Race Day. This Traditional event see's around 2,000 (numbered) Plastic Ducks let loose into the River Swale. A popular family event in the town!

After some fish and chips by the river, the best way to end the day, was a look in one of our favourite shops in the town - York House. This amazing shop features seemingly endless floors of antiques and unique gifts to rummage through - it's hard not to come away with something new!
