- Reclaiming Your Home and Decorating Your Home Office
As we navigate our way slowly along the 'roadmap out of lockdown', and carefully welcome a select few visitors back into our homes, some of us may be finding that we now need to reconsider how we use our living accommodation ... and, indeed, how it is styled.
- New Art to Impress Your Friends After Lockdown
Though the government has recently postponed the full easing of lockdown restrictions, people are still allowed to visit each other indoors (*rule of 6, or 2 households apply as per guidelines in England). Whilst the extroverted are already jumping back into the throes of pubs, post-lockdown parties, and shopping trips, their introverted counterparts may be anxiously treading the water. To mark your ‘new beginnings’ with a warm, welcoming home, we’ve rounded up some brilliant pieces that will liven any space across a range of budgets.
- Father's Day - Art, Accessories and Gift Ideas
With Father's Day (Sunday 20th June) just around the corner, now is the ideal time to start looking for that perfect present for Dad.
It wasn't until the early 1900s that Father's Day became an official holiday – with the US leading the way as one of the first nations to do so. However, it is possible that the annual celebration of fatherhood could have begun even earlier. Evidence can be traced back to 1508 and a Saint Joseph's Day marked in Catholic Europe.
- Hopes for a Summer of Countryside Shows and Equestrian Events
With the UK following the 'roadmap' out of the latest lockdown, we find ourselves feeling hopeful for the year ahead. This is especially true when considering the return of the great Motoring, Equestrian and Countryside shows and events around the country that we so sorely missed last year.
This also means that Collier & Dobson will be back out there at shows this Summer, exhibiting our latest captivating collection of sculpture, original artwork, and limited edition prints.
- The History Behind May Day and How it Affects British Culture Today
May Day (May 1st, or the 1st Monday of May) is known by many in the UK as part of a long weekend spent socialising in beer gardens or walking around the local countryside in the emerging summer sun. What isn’t always understood is the medieval origins surrounding this day, and the confusion between May Day and the Spring bank holiday whose roots came from more political circumstances.
- New Releases - Update
As we haven't quite made it out of lockdown yet, and high street shops are still unable to open, we are extending the release period for our new limited edition prints - we will now be staggering their release from now until June.
- Art for March - Mad March Hares
March is the month synonymous with the excitable and unpredictable behaviour of hares, who gather together for courtship in the Springtime, becoming far less elusive than usual.
- Art and Accessories - Mother's Day Gift Ideas
With Mother's Day (Sunday 14th March) just around the corner, now is the ideal time to start looking for that perfect present for Mum.
As we prepare to celebrate yet another Mother's Day in lockdown, we have more reason than ever to thank those special women in our life who have looked after us, homeschooled us, and supported us through these troubled times - and throughout our lives.
- New Releases - Online Launch
In light of yet another National lockdown due to the ongoing global pandemic, we won't be exhibiting at the Birmingham NEC Springfair as usual this February.
