Years of dreaming, months of planning, finding the right place and then all of a sudden four weeks ago Viv and I signed a lease for our very own studio / art gallery at 2 Stanford Square, just off Warwick Street in the centre of Worthing. Since then it has been a flurry of builders, decorators and electricians let alone organising all the insurance, security, services etc.
But we are now in there and hanging our work YES!
For 30 years we have shown in our studios, being founding members of the Fiveway’s Group in Brighton and continuing that tradition for the last ten years in Worthing. Having retired from Higher Education and moved house this year, this is the first time that we have had the chance to open our own Studio / Art Gallery.
Note the Studio part. This is not just a shop. When the gallery is open we will be working there on our current projects and drawing, painting, printmaking…..
Do come and see us. We will be open from 19th November 10-5 Wednesdays to Saturdays up until Christmas. If you would like to come to the private view, please sign up on our website for an invite at www.martinstudios.co.uk
Tired but happy – Paul
