The Upper Gallery is a large space filled with wonderful natural light and is used for temporary exhibitions which usually change every four to five weeks. A full list of our exhibitions programme can be found in the exhibitions section of our website. We hold solo, group and themed exhibitions throughout the year. The Upper Gallery is also available for hire and is fully manned seven days a week.
Hiring the Upper Gallery for a solo or group exhibition is by application to the gallery co-operative. We meet every third Wednesday of every month where we discuss applications and look at submitted work from established professional artists who wish to be considered for an exhibition in the Upper Gallery.
Our Exhibitions Organisers Gill Vines and Lizzie Brown are constantly sourcing artists and makers for either solo or group exhibitions or to be invited to be included in a themed joint exhibition.
We also like to encourage the participating artists to take part in a 'Meet the Artist' event during their exhibition. These events have proved very popular and are promoted on our Facebook and Twitter pages. 'Meet the Artist' provides a platform to interact with the public and an opportunity to explain concepts, inspirations and techniques required in the production of work, thus promoting more public awareness of the work involved. We have found that it also promotes good sales!
