In November 2017 we were priviledged to welcome renowned artist Andrei Protsouk to the The Acorn Gallery. It was a visit we had long anticipated and the entire gallery was given over to an incredible exhibition of works! Here's what Andrei has to say :)
"The Acorn Gallery is a cozy two story venue that is in the heart of downtown Pocklington. Although, there is not much I can say about Pocklington since we only spent one night there but judging from their high street and neighbouring roads, it seems like a quaint town with nice boutique retail stores. Andrei’s collector base and popularity has been growing in Pocklington and York the last three years. That night some of his collectors finally got to meet him and enjoy some nice conversations. Diane and John were gracious hosts and served nice fare and Andrei’s favorite: champagne! It truly was wonderful to see the passion from the owners and their incredible relationships with their clientele. Thank you to everyone who made it to that pleasant evening".
To our surprise the hotel that Diane & John had booked for us was a golf resort so I suggested we have a moment of R&R before our four hour drive back to London and hit a few balls on the range after breakfast. The beautiful landscape made it hard to look down at the ball. The rolling hills of the English countryside were spectacular. This was a lovely way to break up our trip and also do something that was unrelated to art and unwind a little bit.
