The Graydon Gallery – Exhibition

14th to 26th November 2017

This exhibition is like a book of short stories.

Some of the paintings are metaphorical and some are interiors of places visited and people known. They record brief encounters with characters, show loved places to wander through, and offer a touch of mysteries to ponder.
