Dragons & Flagons
Wondering why there is not many posts from our GoGoDragon Knickerbockergloria? Well Knickerbockergloria is having a fine time with many new adornments being added during this secretive stage. We want the reveal to be just that, a reveal so you will have to wait a little longer before you see her in her full glory.
Our inspiration comes from a place close to Knickerbockergloria's heart, Norfolk...
"The first time we visited Norfolk we made the discovery of a quaint old fashioned ice cream parlour in Blakeney that sold what seemed like the best ice cream in the world.
But what if the ice cream parlour deliciousness had a secret; why was it situated next to Blakeney's mysterious Mariners Hill and just what were those deep rumbling sounds heard by the locals?
Could it be the home of Knickerbockergloria the fabled guardian of the ice cream caverns?
Only Knickerbockergloria knows, see if you can unravel her delightful tale when you meet her on the streets of Norwich later this year.'

Don't forget you can join Knickerbockergloria and the rest of the Impossimals by visiting our website.
Sharing the studio day with our dragon is the special Lost Impossimal project in conjunction with Artmarket Gallery and the Michelin starred chef James MacKenzie. We now have more details about this great Impossimal event taking place in May that YOU can attend exclusively from Artmarket Gallery. Not only will there be new Impossimals but also a chance to get pieces dedicated by Peter, Jayne and top Michelin Star chef James Mackenzie!
"Attention all Peter & Jayne Smith fans! We have another amazing event happening this May at The Pipe and Glass Inn!
‘Artmarket’s Impossimal Evening At The Pipe And Glass’ will be on Thursday 21st May 2015.
For the past few weeks Peter Smith has been working on a piece of art this will be exclusive to the Artmarket Gallery. The piece will have two brand new Impossimals that are based on the owners of the Michelin-starred pub, The Pipe And Glass Inn, James and Kate Mackenzie. We have seen the maquette and preparatory sketches, and it looks amazing already!
This stunning piece will be unveiled on the night along with stories about the piece, in Peters unique story telling way! We will be doing a small boutique edition of limited edition prints from the original that will be on sale. These pieces will be highly collectable as they will not be available to buy from any other gallery, they will be signed (and dedicated if you wish) by both Peter Smith and James Mackenzie.
The evening will begin with a private view of Peter's work with drinks and canapés, and a chance to mingle with Peter and Jayne, and lots of like minded Peter Smith fans!
Michelin starred head chef and owner, James Mackenzie will then invite us to take our seats for the four course meal designed exclusively for the evening, with each course named after the titles of Peter’s paintings! Throughout the night there will be talks from Peter and James, a chance to chat with them both, a live sketch, charity auction and a few surprises along the way.
This is a going to be a super night with a difference! Throw in 5 star food and superb wine makes for a jolly good evening! This is set to be a fabulous night, we are all very excited! We have already has an overwhelming response to this event, so tickets are EXTREMELY limited, please do not delay if you would like tickets.
Tickets at £65 per person for the evening. We are putting on transport to and from our Cottingham gallery to South Dalton. There is also accommodation available from those coming from far and wide!
It would be fantastic to have you there! Any questions, or further information, please call Charlotte on 01482 876 003 or email Charlotte@artmarket.co.uk."
