Nichola Theakston - Saturday
5th September, 2016
A reminder that we have the opening of our Nichola Theakston – Sculpture exhibition this Saturday. Doors open at 10am, reception from noon until 2pm; come along, see some amazing art work and chat to Nichola. The exhibition may be viewed fully HERE.
In addition to the twenty two new works by Nichola, we’ll also have a full hanging of works by three artists. Firstly, some new paintings just collected from the studio of Richard Fitton HERE. As I type, five have already sold, so be quick. Second we’ll have the printmaking of Grayson Perry (RA) on show for the first time in the gallery, listed HERE. We’re hugely proud to have been given the opportunity to bring these works to Castlegate. In addition, new to the gallery is the wonderfully talented Rebecca Swainston, her work may be seen HERE. Rebecca is a graduate of Chelsea School of Art, and a very individual and talented artist, as you’ll see.
So, not only will there be a full exhibition of fabulous sculpture, but also on show will be works by both new exciting emerging talent and that internationally recognised and collected. Not a bad selection to come and see, if we do say so ourselves!
As always, all works may be purchased using the Arts Council Own Art Scheme, spreading the cost of art ownership over ten months at zero interest cost.
Finally, the gallery will be closed this Friday, 9th September, to allow us to get the exhibition prepared for doors open on Saturday. The exhibition will run for three weeks until 1st October.
Hope to see as many of you as possible on Saturday.
Steve and Christine
