This is a super important question, because you'd be forgiven for thinking that the Artizan Summer Open 2018 was going to be at Artizan Gallery. However, you'd be wrong! This year, thanks to the kind sponsorship of Edinburgh House Estates we're off on tour with the exhibition and we'll be creating a Pop-up Gallery at Unit 5 Fleet Walk.
For locals, you may remember this as the Laura Ashley building, or perhaps more recently as the brief home of Weird Fish. Either way, its a really great location, down at the bottom end of Torquay town on the main high street, just a little way up from the Harbour. It's got beautiful front windows and sits where the pedestrianised area of the street widens up opposite Banx Café Bar and the route to The Terrace. We've also rather high end brands for neighbours including Animal, Deichmann and Starbucks. The venue benefits from high footfall and excellent access from the bus routes and Fleet Walk car park, so all in all, we're very grateful to be here at the kind invitation of Edinburgh House Estates.
With this placement at the height of Torbay's Summer season, we hope this will be a wonderful location for an open exhibition, with artists, locals, tourists and visitors able to join us in this beautiful exhibition space to Celebrate Visual Arts in Torbay!
