Our new on-line gallery and shop

Over the past month or so Ella and I have been working on designing and setting up an on-line gallery and shop where Dave's work can be browsed through and items can be purchased directly. We've been able to do this through our links with Artlook Software, who designed the software for the catalogue that we've been using these past 8 years. Yesterday the site finally went live! 

Please visit us! We would be grateful to receive your feedback. 

We've started out with just a fairly small selection of works on paper, prints and small gouaches and oil paintings. Things we know that we'll be able to mail out safely and at reasonable cost. 

We hope to expand the work available on-line through time, as we get used to how on-line shopping works. 

Many thanks!

Art Trail 2018

We're currently preparing the studio on Manchester Road for a new exhibition - 'Fragments' - which will open for the 2018 Rossendale Art Trail during the first weekend in October (6/7th)...also open Friday 5th from 10.30am - 3pm. 

The exhibition will show a selection of the small oil paintings that Dave Pearson created to hang adjacent to the main multi-panel paintings of his Byzantium series.

An on-line shop

I've been working with Ella Cole to create a new on-line shop for purchasing Dave Pearson's work. It's an opportunity that has grown from upgrading the Artlook software that Ella has been using these past few years to catalogue Dave Pearson's work.

At the end of last year Artlook undertook a major overhaul of their software which enabled the catalogue to benefit from cloud technology for storage and our Macs to easily engage with a catalogue which previously been limited to PCs. 

One of the best things about these changes is that the new software comes with a website which can be fairly easily made into a shop for selling work. We hope that this will go live in a few weeks time, and at the moment we're creating some groupings of Dave's work for the experiment. Initially we will be offering some of his colourful Byzantium gouaches, a selection of etchings based on British Calendar Customs, smaller Byzantium-themed oil paintings, and other works on paper.
