Beat The Heat, and Enjoy Some "Cool" New Art!

It's been a busy week at the gallery, and we hope you're all enjoying the summer heat!  We've had some amazing new artworks pass through our doors, and we wanted to share some of them with you! 

First up, we have some incredible new paintings by Alexander Koltakov. You can almost hear the waves crashing in this "Seascape" beach painting. If you need a break from the sun, you can also enjoy this shady retreat on a lovely street in Bedford.
