Spring cleaning the Gallery for Reopening on 15th June!!!
After what seems like a long time away from the gallery with a very abrupt departure we are finally able to reopen on Monday 15th June!
Its not been an easy couple of months with three reluctant homeschoolers and the background noise of the pandemic. Shielding the children physically and emotionally is quite exhausting.
But we are back in action! I've got a steady stream of original artwork from new and existing artists with some great group and one person exhibitions coming up. We have unfortunately had to postpone three exhibitions from this years calendar - but rest assured they will be in the gallery next year.
Monica Shanta, Zac Mclaughlin and Liese Webley solo exhibitions will all be rescheduled for the beginning of 2021
Our next exhibition
A group show organised by Shelley bringing together artists who have been making artwork in reaction to and during the pandemic. It's provisional title is 'Behind Closed Doors'. Shelley has been quite prolific during the past few months and has returned somewhat to her 'pre-child' studio practice.

And finally... a painting that describes his most intimate feelings in these troubled times and the effect it has had on his emotional and educational state, by Mortimer Noble (aged 6).
Please note the use of tenebrism and chiaroscuro coupled with clever application of scumbling, over-drawing and tachism. I think you will agree it hints at what we have all felt over the past few months.
