What a day! The Remarkable Art Cafe yesterday was a beautiful event at a great venue The Remarkable Hare Pub. We all wondered if hosting an event in a high street pub would work but as one visitor pointed out 'I came in for a drink with my wife and now I've bought her a silver necklace!'
Which just goes to show you never know where your customers may be and its sometimes worth trying other venues not usually associated with art.
So it did fit in with Purple and Grey's ethos of taking art out into the community and encouraging as many people as possible to have access to it.
Below are some images of the event and if you are an organisation or group of artists do contact the pub to see if they would host any more art cafes.
We are about to take possession of our new leaflets with all next years events listed so please look out for them in a venue near you soon.
Purple and Grey would also like to send our condolences to the family of Simon from In the Flow art shop Matlock, Simon had been a superb supporter of our group and often referred artists to us we had plans to work with him in 2019, we are very sorry to hear about his untimely death. We wish his friends and family love at this time.
Purple and Grey.
