Exhibitors Needed For This Year's Spot On The Wall Exhibition
Tuesday - June 21, 2016
A popular Richmond gallery is offering space on its walls for professional and amateur artists to display their work over the busy summer visitor season.
The Station’s ‘A Spot on the Wall’ open exhibition is being held between Saturday 23 July and Wednesday 31 August, filling the walls and display spaces of the former railway building with an eclectic range of paintings, photography, ceramics and sculpture by numerous artists.
“It’s the sixth year we’ve run the open art show, which is a fundraiser for The Station charity,” explains Gallery Manager, Thea Treweek. “It's got a real twist as it’s not a static show over the six weeks, but one involving up to 100 artists with ever changing work to see. Each time a piece is sold, the artist puts something new in its place. It means visitors experience something new every time they enter the building – and know that if they are in the mood to buy, they need to act fast to secure that piece!”
A Spot on the Wall is also a great way for amateur artists to display their work without having to put on an entire exhibition.
“We’ve had several artists take a spot on our wall and then go on to have their own shows later,” adds Thea. “It’s a good way to test the water, and gain confidence in your abilities as an artist who wants to sell their work.”
Professional artists who have taken a spot on the wall in the past include Lucy Pittaway, Petra Lloyd, Guy Carpenter, Mat Robinson and Sandra Parker.
