It's been ten months since my last blog, and eight of those we've been under lockdown due to the pandemic.
Inevitably, things have slowed right down during this period. The studio in Haslingden has had to close its doors, although I've been working on and off in tidying the collection; trying to make more space; and hanging a new (sadly almost totally unseen) exhibition of some of Dave's small oil paintings.
Sales have inevitably dropped right away, although interest has picked up again these past few weeks, which has been encouraging.
The annual Rossendale Art Trail for 2020 was cancelled because of the pandemic, and as a second-best we've created a new website - Rossendale Art Trail Online - at rossendalearttrail.org, which I spent much of the late summer designing. The Dave Pearson Studio features as an exhibition venue in its listings, although Dave Pearson is not included as it's very much a site for practicing artists.
