Winter

It's going to be our first exhibition as the new (hosts? runners? managers? I refuse to say 'curators') of the Coldstream Gallery, and we're very excited by the artists and work we've got lined up to show.

I designed the new publicity material. The aim was to design something that people would want to keep. I don't know if it's that, but I like it.
