Catherine Tempest photographic work purchased from Gallery 139's first exhibition BEGINNINGS in it's home.

I have been wondering lately where the artworks I've sold from the gallery over the past year and half have ended up. Did they find a permanent home or are they still waiting, were they given as presents or were they bought as a present. Then yesterday, a visitor came in and we got talking and he mentioned he had bought a work from me. A photographic work by Catherine Tempest that was part of my first exhibition, timely named BEGINNINGS. I asked him to take a photo of it in it's home and send it to me. Here it is. Catherine Tempest's Sensing Contact a digital photographic image printed onto Tyvek polythene (a kind of printing paper).  

It's actually quite exciting to know that a work sold during my first exhibition which was my first sale from my first business is hanging up in someone's home. It looks contemporary and improves the home owner's space, he also mentioned that both he and his wife like it, which is even more rewarding to hear. 

So, if you're reading this and you have purchased a work from the gallery, please take a photo and email it to us at info@gallery139.com.au, we'd love to see where our artworks have found a home.
