Inspired by Wells:
An exhibition success
Our artist, Linda Pattrick, was successful in selling ten of her exceptional paintings at her exhibition in The Handa Gallery in Wells Maltings which finished on the 21 April. After the two week period, Linda said ’This was by far my best exhibition to date and served as a much needed boost, not only for myself but for the post lockdown local Wells economy.’

Linda is currently working on her next inspiring paintings, so watch this space!

Her show continues on the Concrete Cube Gallery until the 30 June.
