Thursday evening saw StolenSpace packed to the rafters both inside and out with people attending the Decked show! It was great to see so many people come down to take a look, and it was hi-fives all round for the quality of artwork and uniqueness of the boards! Thanks to all who made this a possibility and it is certainly something we will be looking to continue into next year ...so watch this space!

So it finally happened, after 8 months of emailing and calling and chasing and advertising and designing, we actually got to hang the Decked exhibition yesterday. It's a little sad to lose the amazing decks that have been in our living room for the last 2 weeks but they're looking incredible hung in StolenSpace.
Vicky and I need to say a massive thanks to Alex, Dan, Jamie and Lisa for driving and helping us hang everything. It wouldn't have been this easy without you guys!
Here's a few pictures but go and see the exhibition in the flesh, you won't be disappointed. Promise! Take some cash too as not only are the decks themselves for sale but there's some crazy good canvases and prints from Vicky Newman, Elfin, Lucas Deverell and Tom Stanley that I guarantee you'll want to buy. Also go out for food too because there's some incredible places to eat round there.
Remember private view on the 27th!! 7pm-9pm, its gonna be a blast!
