Whilst the sun continues to shine outside and as we have now moved into July, it is time for another mixed media exhibition at the gallery. This one entitled ‘Summer Breeze’. Again, we have a diverse mix here – something for everyone.
Our Private Views continue to be well attended and we are getting lots of repeat visits to the gallery as people get to know what we are about and that here is a space that is constantly changing.
Even in such a short time the gallery has exhibited work from 27 artists, all from Devon and most from Torbay. Torbay is considered a cultural ‘cold spot’ and it really should not be because we have an abundance of artistic and creative talent here.
One of our latest exhibitors is Roz Woodhead who designs and makes stunning silver jewellery mounted with sea and dichroic glass. She will be with us throughout the summer.
This week we also hosted a ‘Comedy Workshop’ as part of the ‘Riviera Fringe Festival’ and our thanks go to Richard James for running and performing at this event for us.
We have reached the half way mark for our ‘Life Drawing’ classes so there is still time to come and take part. They take place on a Wednesday evening between 7pm and 9pm and the cost is £10 a session.
In between customers we are busily upcycling some of the furniture that we have inherited and the room below the gallery will soon be able to offer a range of second hand books for sale. We have a few on sale already, but hope to expand on this over the next few months. In between times this lower room can be hired for workshops of all types so if you are creative yourself then please get in touch and arrange to come and take a look at what the space can offer.
Exhibitions planned for later in the year will include glass, textiles and one on a tribal theme so watch this space for more news of these.
