Testimonials

 

I am pleased with my membership of Creative Coverage and feel that you provide opportunities for exhibition which I would not otherwise be aware of. I feel that you make an effort to provide those opportunities in areas which are reasonably local to me. You are presumably doing this for all your members, on a national basis, which is impressive. I am particularly pleased with the contact with the Brewhouse in Taunton, which was through the Creative Coverage exhibition. I will have a solo exhibition there in October/November and am running weekly classes there in term time.

After following one of your leads, I have got work into the Espacio Gallery in East London for the Chelsea Fringe – ‘Flourish’ exhibition. I’m doing my best to be pro-active this year and have work in Rye Gallery in Sussex, the Jam Factory in Oxford, the Core Gallery in Solihull, Hanbury Hall in Worcestershire and the RBSA in Birmingham.

One of the reasons that I have been busy is because I have been accepted for a number of exhibitions. Two that I have been accepted for were from your list that you sent round. Thank you – it’s worth all your hard work as I would never have seen them otherwise! So, I am exhibiting at: The Jam Factory, Oxford and Kunthuis Gallery, Crayke. I’m really chuffed so thanks again!!!!!!

I had a surprise phone call from a very old friend that I hadn’t seen for over 30 years, which was lovely, as a result of your last press release that he saw in a local paper.

Clive Meredith

Just wanted to congratulate you on organising such a brilliant exhibition at Kennaway House. I went to collect this morning and was early enough to have a good look around at most of the exhibits, before they were collected. Really good selection of different styles but all worked together really well.  Hopefully you will consider another one there at some point.

Well done with the press release, I had a photographer from the Wiltshire Times out today photographing groups of work for my assorted show for something they hope to get in the paper this Friday. He particularly liked the Stagman which is coming to Kennaway House so with any luck that will be in! He got the book as well, so all in all another example of great Creative Coverage. Thank you so much.

I think your company offers a completely unique and personal service which is inclusive and helps keep artists communicating, not to mention giving opportunities for sales and introductions. Creating can be an isolating business, and it's always good to know we have you rooting for us and giving us opportunities to show and get together.

Thank you for sending the annual report for my year with Creative Coverage.

I find Creative Coverage very active and I am sure that I do not use them to the best of their capability.  I have now taken on an assistant and I hope that she will soon be able to develop our relationship further. They always seem to be energetic behind the scenes and, for the reasonable priced membership, I would consider it money well spent.

Eileen Sey

Thank you for my activity report and yes I would be very interested in signing up for another year with Creative Coverage.  You have provided me with lots of opportunities this past year and reading your report shows how much else you have done on my behalf. It's an excellent idea to send a report! We will send you fresh images for the profile page, probably within the next week or so and will include payment for the Creative Coverage subscription. I think the whole experience of subscribing to Creative Coverage has been a great success.  Your communications have been very informative with a steady flow throughout the year and there has a been a lovely personal feel to the service you have provided. Thanks and best wishes to you both.

Following information you emailed to us, I entered the 2014 Broadway Arts Festival Open Art Competition in May/June and sold my large canvas of Shirley Brass Band at the preview, which was exciting. It has been lovely to meet up with Robert at the Hayrack Gallery in Northampton and Fiona McCrindle at the Edinburgh Drawing School. Robert is now selling my prints and cards and Fiona has been showing my work in her gallery in Edinburgh and also Glasgow. I have really appreciated your support this year Tim through Creative Coverage and am delighted with the contacts you have sent my way.

Thanks again for your facilitating my involvment with the United Society of Artists show in Cork Street in June. Four of the six paintings I submitted were selected for the exhibition, which is great in itself. I struggled down on the train and the tube for the hand-in with the four paintings bundled up into a hefty package and was rewarded by being awarded the Michael Harding Prize for one of my pictures, "A Winter Landscape near Cortachy". This painting was sold through the exhibition and is now in Toronto. I'm now a member of United Society of Artists and hope to show at their November exhibition at The Bankside Gallery, London. Thanks for forwarding the resume of my Creative Coverage activities 2014. Looking forward to renewing my subscription, showing you new work, and further Creative Coverage adventures in 2015.

Just had to say a very big thank you for the brilliant coverage of our event. It featured in a quarter page article in the Henley Standard and it really drew the crowds in. I sold lots of originals and prints and have some possible commissions on the horizon. We have some other events coming up, so please could I contact you soon with the details of those. Thank you for all your hard work promoting my work, it does seem to make a big difference to my sales to have you promote it in the press releases.
