The end to paper

It's Wednesday, the 8th of July and we are in the final week of The Art of Paper, the 7th exhibition at the Gallery 139. It's cold and the winter has abruptly arrived. I'm wearing my scarf, stockings and hat to stay warm plus sitting with my crocheted blanket with a heater. I find myself each day, sneaking an extra hot drink or two.

This exhibition has filled the gallery quietly and it's nice to discover when all the works were hung, they have a lightness about them which is enhanced by the floating paper sculptures by Rieteka Guersen in the middle of the gallery floor. I find myself looking around the walls and thinking to myself, how lucky I am, to be able to come to work and have such beautiful images around me. It's no wonder I feel happy. Just looking at something that uplifts you, can make you feel better. It's the subtle power of art. So, come in and see this show before it ends on Saturday, 11 July at 2pm.

We look forward to you feeling as happy as we do.
