Jody delighted by Castle Galleries exhibition

Jody was delighted with the success of his recent exhibition at Castle Galleries in Wolverhampton.

25 of his paintings were on show from Thursday 9th through to Monday 13th December, with 5 pieces sold during this short period of time.

He said: “This was my first official exhibition as a professional artist, so a lot was riding on its success.

“With this in mind, I was possibly more nervous before the preview evening than I am when I’m preparing to step out at Molineux for a big game.

“I couldn’t have been more delighted with the way the exhibition went. I am determined to make my Craddock Art business a big success in the months and years to come.

“Hopefully when I am established in the art fraternity, I can look back on my first outing at Castle Galleries as the place where it all began.”

A star studded preview evening attracted guest appearances from singer Beverley Knight, cricketer Vikram Solanki, manager Mick McCarthy and a host of established art writers. His team mates were quick to lend their support as well, in another display of unity from within the Molineux dressing room.

“The lads have been wonderful and have been a source of encouragement as I work my way back to full fitness, and also as I prepared for this exhibition.

“One piece in my collection is a portrait of Richard Stearman after he scored the winner against Doncaster on the last game of our Championship winning season.

“He seemed to be quite impressed by it, so I’m waiting for him to make me a offer!”
