We are here primarily, to provide exhibition space for local artists and the Gallery is run and staffed entirely by volunteers. Membership normally runs from February to December each year but now due to the pandemic all 2020 members are automatically 2021 members. We take 25% commission on any of your work which sells. Your fee and any commission help collectively with running costs; mainly rent, and public liability insurance.
How we operate since the first Government shut down on March 23rd 2020
The Gallery only is open; the Studio is being used as a passing place and further exhibition space. Your work is safe during shutdowns and there is no requirement to collect or swap work.
Submissions from new members and members who have sold work are also taking place in the Studio, by appointment only.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and address your email to Elidh for an appointment, allowing a few days notice, or a week if you want a particular day. When the gallery is open, appointments will be from 9.45 - 10.15.
For the safety and comfort of our volunteers and customers, please do not 'just turn up' during Gallery opening hours to submit work.
The Gallery has hand sanitiser available at the foot of the stairs, by the entrance, by the entrance to the rear room and on the custodians desk. We also have NHS QR codes. All members are expected to wear a face covering when visiting the gallery at any time.
