Being prone to impulsive risk taking as I am I've just gone and rented a real life bricks and mortar shop to turn into a gallery. Luckily its right on the sea front in a place crawling with tourists and I'm mostly going to be offering local fare to those passing through - but occassionally I'm going to stick some girls up on there just to see how the ultra conservative Maltese react. wink I know its totally crazy, mad, and probably doomed to commercial failure but hell, I'm excited! So if any of you ever find yourself in Xlendi Bay then do drop in! 


ps. I won't just be exhibiting my own work of course so if anyone is interested in having their work offered for sale in a real life place where half the people seem to rock up to the front door in yachts then drop me a message. Totally open to all kinds of images. Its basically just a project for me to leave the rat race once and for all.

I think its a excellent idea! 

When we were there we were saying the place needed a  bread shop and a art gallery - there were very few handmade, truley local things  to buy in the area.  A T shirt made in China with the words Gozo on it didnt seem to cut it some how.

If I get the gallery doing well that will totally be my next thing; a bread shop/bakery - you are totally right, the place really does need one for sure!

Thanks everyone for all the positive support - very much appreciated! There will be an open invite to all Purestorm members for the opening smiley
Been modging about in the shell that is the soon to be gallery today, discussing with local tradesmen and also attempting to deal with the myriad of government departments again. Have to keep going down to the bars to have a drink and take a step back as the insanity of it all keeps sinking in. Mind you, as all us creative types know only too well, if we waited until we really 'knew what we were doing' or had everything in place then we would never actually do anything.

From some emails I've had as well it appears many of us Purestormers are entrepreneurs in other fields too - must be something in the spirit. cheeky
