SPEECH given at the opening of Handwise VII, Newcastle Art Space, Friday 20 May 2014

Hi, I’m Leslie Duffin

Leslie
I would like to say a few words about Ann on 
behalf of the NAS committee. During my day 
to day life, I wear many “hats”: teacher, practicing 
artist, Gallery Owner/Director and NAS committee 
member. I can speak about Ann from these many 
points of view: as an exhibiting artist, I applied to 
NAS for my first solo show (a scary thing for any
artist). Ann was helpful and supportive through the 
whole process, reassuring me along the way and 
providing invaluable assistance with the behind the 
scenes set-up and promotion of the exhibition. 
At this point in time I did not have my own gallery, 
and there was so much I didn’t know. I know may 
other artists, in all stages of their career, have also been helped through this 
same experience by Ann. It was after this that I decided to join the NAS committee, 
and I have been a member of the gallery committee for the past 18 months. [I am 
always reminded of the allusion to a camel when I think of a committee. Those 
who have work on, or with, a committee will know what I mean.]
As a committee member, I have found Ann to be a great 
leader and delegator, who has a love of the gallery and a 
true regard for the artists who exhibit here. Although the 
role of Gallery Director of NAS is voluntary (and Unpaid), 
Ann has undertaken it with dedication and a professional 
attitude. The smooth running of a gallery involves a lot of 
behind the scenes activity. The annual NEAP also requires 
a great deal of work; obtaining sponsorship, securing 
judges and all the administration tasks in creating an event. 
Ann has successfully guided the committee through these 
tasks for many years.
As a fellow Gallery Director, I respect Ann’s ability to 
recognise and acknowledge the contributions of all those who work with her. Being 
on a committee is often a thankless job, but Ann shows her appreciation to those 
who work with her.
Ann also enjoys the challenge of curation (something 
which I am still learning to enjoy) and has “fearlessly” 
stepped up to speak at openings and events as the 
face of NAS (something else I am still learning to enjoy). 
She has also been the “person to contact” with regard 
to all the gallery matters, a job which knows no defined 
hours of business.I know Ann is going to continue to be 
a valuable member of the NAS committee, and I know 
we will draw on her knowledge and experience. We can 
all look forward to the next chapter in the history of NAS, 
with Ahn Wells as Director.
I hope by handing over the responsibility of such a demanding 
role to Ahn, that Ann will be able to find more time to wear her own ‘Artist’ hat, 
which I’m sure she will skilfully create.
