First Leeds Artsmix of 2016

On Saturday 9th April I’ll be manning a stall at the first Artsmix Market of the year in Leeds, Yorkshire, UK, The World.

New stock, ready for the Leeds Artsmix

For the first time I’ll be flying solo, my normal sidekick fellow photographer Anthony Shaughnessy (https://anthonyshaughnessy.wordpress.com) being otherwise engaged, which leaves me with the shivers (of excitement) and shakes (of apprehension).

Best sellers, Staithes & Whitby

For this Artsmix I’ve gone all out; a whole revamp of the stall, new acrylic framing and of course new images, some from my recent trip to Lofoten.

Packed up, ready to rock n roll.

So now with 6 days to go, it’s going to take a couple of evenings of mounting and wrapping, and we’ll be ready to go.

All images are (or will be soon) available on t’interweb at http://www.richardjwalls.com.
