Sam Toft 2022 Calendar
This year is whizzing by - I'm sure we will all be glad to see the back of 2021, so here's Sam Toft's 2022 calendar so you can plan something better for next year! Perhaps we can even have (dare I say it... ) a holiday (come to York - its lovely!).
Each calendar measures 30x30cm, and is packed with the usual quantity of Sam's delightful artwork.
Why not treat yourself to some of Sam's other artwork and save on postage costs? Or just pop in to the Gallery in York city centre and get one. Did you know we have a room pretty much full of Tofty goodness?
Sam Toft's 2022 Meet the Mustards Calendar
The back reads (with thanks to Sam for letting us tell you the story of the Mustards):
Ernest Hemmingway Mustard lives in a not-so-damp basement flat, with Violet, his dear lady wife, and Doris the portly Jack Russell Terrier. Sam Toft, their official picture maker, has created an imaginary world, based on her hometown of Brighton, where they live a life of simple pleasures in faded ice cream colours. A place where kindness and generosity are the norm, the wind is always there to blow away the cobwebs and fish really do ride on bicycles.
'The world of Mustard with its old fashioned values and strong sense of whimsy is a real comfort in these unpredictable times. I am a firm believer that accepting what is, feeling the feelings without getting caught up in them and sharing out the rose tinted spectacles is the best way to proceed.'
Sam lives in an old white house by the sea with her two dogs Betty and Stan. She has a small shop nearby, and has renovated two lovely old telephone boxes which are now used as a community art space. This year sees an exciting new collaboration with her sister. Drawing on Sam's work with the Mustard family and Louise's long career as a Psychotherapist and Life Coach they are creating a big warm hug of a book. to delight and inspire.
As ever, at The Braithwaite Gallery, we are delighted to support Sam in her every endeavour and cant wait to see the new book once it's complete! In the meantime, why not treat yourself to a lovely calendar and bring yourself a warm fuzzy hug right through 2022?
