Blue Duck blues

photoThe sad closure of the Blue Duck art gallery in Caversham does at least have a positive.

Clare Grashoff gave up the shop to look after her baby but the business was successful.

Ten years ago she had seen the empty unit and negotiated a lease, despite having no experience in such a business.

There were few businesses like it then yet she made it work and who knows where it could have led? There remains the Blue Matchbox gallery in Tilehurst but, given the success of the Blue Duck, there seems no reason why there can’t be more.
