Orchard Café Sunday and Red 50

Orchard Cafe is behind West Ealing BHS
Yesterday (Day 3 Beat w/e 1) went well for us at Orchard Café which is 23+ in the excellent BEAT brochure.

Early on in the day we had  a visit from Naomi Healy who is a guiding light of the project and has been busy visiting as many of the locations as he can.

Interest was high particularly for John Kaye's work and a few items were sold.

Tim Layden who exhibited a broad range of work from figurative to abstract and some colour field in there too) was able to explain to many interested visitors his knowledge of Synesthesia a condition many artists have sought to represent (Wikipedia describes it as "a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second")

Large and varied canvases from Tim Layden

Colour Fields -A Touch of the Rothko's perhaps?

As you can see as well as interest for Tim Layden's work John too was busy selling

Sadly there was a bit of dismantling and clearing to do as the site will be used for other things in the week to come - but so I can re-assemble it next week (and you can pretend you were there) here's a Photosynth image of my corner.

Caught in the breeze - I can almost feel it
