Opening of Gallery 8 - Friend & Co

We've been to about 5 street art events this month, and as I've mentioned before, I'm quite behind on uploading my blog pix, so here's one we went to last week.

It was a cold dark autumnal evening, and the gallery is big enough to hold around 3 people at a push. It's a possibly the smallest gallery ever, but it's quite adorable. It's on the site of an old shop that used to sell garden pots on a Sunday morning and has been empty for many years. Geoff Barrow (he of Portishead) told us he bought the shop 2 1/2 years ago, and didn't really know what to do with it. Rather interestingly he told us he's not a very 'visual' sort of person, which is interesting as he part owns a gallery! It's the facade to a new venture selling prints www.friend-and-co.com.
