or, time travel, Gallery Style......

The good news is that in the last 6 months, Fountain Street Fine art has been delightfully busy, hosting several exhibitions and a myriad of associated openings, gallery talks and events. The bad news is that this blog's not kept pace, not even a little!

So in the interest of historical accuracy, here's a quick recap of the past few months' exhibits and events, with links to more, to satisfy your curiosity.
