Art is Back on Track at The Station
The Station in Richmond is seeking amateur, emerging and experienced artists and photographers to exhibit in this year’s specially extended Spot on the Wall exhibition.
The exhibition will run from Saturday 28th November 2020 to Wednesday 3rd February 2021, and gives visitors to The Station an ever-changing display of art to enjoy and purchase, in a wide range of media.
Through this exhibition, The Station gathers together a fantastic range of talented artists. Whether the artist is a first time exhibitor, or they have been exhibiting for years, as a profession or a hobby, they sit side by side on the walls of the prestigious old station building.
As well as this, as a piece of art is sold from the artist's spot, they can replace it with another, meaning there are virtually unlimited opportunities for sales. For visitors to The Station, the exhibition looks different every time.
Gallery Co-ordinator, Jennifer Rasbeary, says “I am so excited to see the range of art and meet everyone that gets involved. It is so amazing to see an exhibition that incorporates new and emerging artists alongside experienced ones. Getting Back on Track with art exhibitions at The Station means the building can come back to life again.”
As a special offer, to celebrate The Station’s Gallery’s reopening after five months of closure due to Covid-19, artists will be able to exhibit for double the amount of time for the same great price.
To apply, please visit www.thestation.co.uk/spot . Applications are on a first-come first-served basis.
The Station Gallery reopens on Saturday 29th August with highly anticipated exhibitions from local artists Jo Pardoe, Max Ahmed and Gill Kopka, as well as a New York Photography exhibition from Alan Clements.
Also reopening on Saturday is The Shop at The Station, which sells exceptional design from a variety of artists: From jewellery to greetings cards, sculpted pieces, ceramics, mugs, jugs and vases.
This means that from 29th August all areas of The Station will now be open for business – The Station Café | Bar, The Station Gallery, The Shop, The Station Cinema, Angel’s Share Bakery, Richmond Brewing Company, Archer’s Ice Cream and Charlotte Jacqueline School of Dance.
