Today is the final day of @normanlongartist's solo exhibition 'Emerging into the Light'. We feel very privileged to have been able to showcase this collection of paintings and will be sad to take them down. It's a real tonic coming into the Gallery and seeing such vibrant and exciting work.

Hangovers are not an excuse, it's a beautiful day so get yourselves into the Gallery quick smart to view this gorgeous collection of oil paintings. We close at 5pm.

The sun is almost setting on ‘Emerging into the Light’ so this is your final call to come and see @normanlongartist’s spectacular show before it closes tomorrow, Saturday 4th June, at 5pm.

We’ve had a fantastic time speaking with visitors about these paintings and it has been great seeing the reaction to Norman’s unique style and talent. We still have a few pieces available so get in touch to secure yourself one.

If you missed the talk last Saturday, these videos by Norman Long do a wonderful job of explaining the inspiration behind the work.

This painting, ‘Grown Ups and the Things They do’ is available to view in the Gallery until Saturday evening. It is a brilliant example of Long’s ability to experiment with his application of paint!

Some of the beautiful detail in @normanlongartist's 'Family Crossing'. It is always amazing how well a series of carefully placed brushstrokes can create the suggestion of water. The shimmering effect is best experienced up-close in person.

'Emerging into the Light' runs until Saturday 4th June.

The most enjoyable and hectic time at the Gallery is the hanging of work for a new exhibition. Using creative licence to curate a cohesive show is a daunting but rewarding process. Luckily, @normanlongartist’s paintings have sorted themselves ready for their Saturday preview!

We cannot wait to welcome you to 'Emerging into the Light' from 21st May at 10:30am until Saturday 4th June at 5pm.

Hi Alex, Thanks for the email update regarding your temporary closure due to coronavirus, both Cathy and myself wish you and your staff the very best, stay safe and hopefully we'll be back shopping soon. Jeff & Cathy Heywood
Contemporary Six is a brilliant gallery. The staff are really friendly and will chat to you about art without any pressure to buy. Call in and see what they have to offer.
why use the word plein air, it is french, before this word is what out door painting,, plein air is an excuse to charge more, and pretend you are much better,,, you are not
As always, excited to be exhibiting at #ContemporarySix, my work is exclusive to the gallery, I am a contemporary artist born and based in north Wales and paint my dreams and impressions of places that inspire. Thank you
So sorry we can't be with you (you don't want our virus's!) However we send you our best wishes for a successful evening. Ann
Lovely to catch up with our favourite artists 😊 Dean Entwistle Anne Aspinall et al
Great evening thanks Alex (and Sophie is gorgeous!)
