Light and reflections in the gallery today

In just over an hour's time I'll be drawing back the shutters and putting the signs out on the path in Hill Street Saffron Walden – it's my turn again to be on the front line of retail in The Riverslade Gallery.

Are you basking in the heat wave? The gallery is a little oasis of tranquil calm, Carole Grey's glass panels casts coloured patterns on the floor . . .

Patricia Palmer is a new member of the gallery, her paintings are geometric compositions inspired by Moroccan buildings. The colours are echoed perfectly by Marilyn Andreetti's ceramics.

So, if you're walking into town from the Waitrose car park, look for the pink geraniums in the window box and pop in for a chat . . . and find some beautiful treats for you and your friends.


  1. I will come over one day - just not today, as I am playing nursemaid to the chicken pox patient

  2. what a delight work place! But with so much beauty around I am surprised there is anything in the gallery and you haven't bought it all!!

  3. I must pop over one day when you are on patrol Celia. Carol's glass panels are lovely.


  4. You make it sound wonderful, a cool haven of beauty. I haven't been to Saffron Walden for years and years (I used to live in Bishops Stortford a long time ago) but actually it really isn't so very far from where I live now, I shall try to make a trip soon and will be sure to visit the gallery.
