‘Study of Birds’ by Sara Napoletani

heronWe are pleased to be hosting an exhibition of new pictures by Sara Napoletani.  This collection of bird pictures have all been painted over the summer and autumn of 2016 and this is the first time they have been on show. Mostly finely painted water colours, save for two large and dramatic pictures in egg tempera, these pictures all reflect Sara’s recently developed endeavour to capture the spirit of birds in flight.

The exhibition continues through December and into the New Year.

On Saturday afternoon November 26th Sara will be in the shop 2.30 – 3.30 so do come along to meet her and find out more about her art.

 

 

 

Civilised Saturday – 26th November

Black Friday (25th November) is the day so many retailers seem to celebrate now. Imported here from America, you’ve probably seen the clips of shoppers shouting, stampeding and even fighting to be first to the pile of cut price, flat screen TV’s.

Civilised Saturday is the book trade’s antidote so join us on Saturday 26th November for a truly civilised shopping experience.
