I really enjoyed taking part again in the BEAT Ealing Art Trail 2018.
As it was my second BEAT and there were 100 new artists this year, I really didn’t expect to have many people come along to my venue. However, I had 260 visitors – 10 more than last year! I made a lot of a sales, took 2 small, 1 large commissions and had 30 people wanting more information on the beginners mosaic lessons that I run. So all in all a great success.
Again, everyone who visited was really interested in my work and as I had a demonstration piece on display, I could show them the various stages involved in mosaic making. It was especially nice to have return visitors from last year who brought their friends and were keen to see what new work I had developed during the year.
After the event I had one day to wrap and deliver my sales. I then went away for a well deserved rest. However, on returning yesturday I walked in to a house which still resembled a Gallery, bare rooms without any furniture, brochures scattered everywhere and bunting to be put away. As there are so many empty wall hooks it may be time to decorate!
We have a committee meeting on Monday so after having a de-brief on the event, I am sure we will start talking about BEAT 2019!
Thank you to everyone who came to see me and supported the event. Well done to all the artists who took part and congratulations to my fellow committee members in achieving another great BEAT Ealing Art trail 2018.
