Countdown to Robert Bateman’s show

Things are all abuzz here at Gallery One! Robert Bateman will be with us again this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.! Jen has completely re-arranged the exhibits to make way for more of his works. The exhibit is as spectacular as it always is when she gets a show ready. But this one features a huge variety of his older papers and the best selection of his newer giclées that you’ll ever find anywhere; and they’re all beautifully framed! You’ll find a big shipment of his newest book displayed on the front counter too.
Staffing arrangements have been made for refreshments, sales and security. We’ve had a technical rehearsal of the A/V equipment and believe we have everything as ready as it can be for now. Final set-up will wait for just before the show.
Even though Robert Bateman has been here 15 times before, each of his visits generate an almost electric excitement in each one of us and in so many of our clients. His long and illustrious career with his devotion to conservation and his incredible body of work is a big part of the reason. But he’s also a good friend. Don’t miss this chance to spend some time with a true legend in the world of art!  In the meantime, browse his artwork.
