Black Swan Open 2016

We’re sponsoring Black Swan Arts Open this year, and as part of that we gave away a £100 framing voucher to go towards the cost of a bespoke frame. We were invited to a sneak preview of the exhibition ahead of the opening last week, and we got to choose our favourite piece. This was one of the hardest choices we’ve ever had to make! We loved everything, and found it really hard to select even ten favourites, let alone one. But with the pressure of time, we had to make a decision, and went for Kate Walter’s amazing painting, My dog Keeps watch as I Pray.

One of the great things about art is how is subjective it is, our choice was not a binary matter of our favourite piece; we liked a number of works equally. Here’s a rundown of just a small selection of our favourites:

 Nicola Grellier – Chair, Ottoman, Dog & Rug
