The display will be showing all the talented winners who entred the
Rotary Young Artists Competition,
which took place earlier this year.
Last month's exhibition was by a visiting artist, Ron Satterthwaite.
Ron is a self taught artist living in Codsall near Wolverhampton. He paints portraits, landscapes and life studies, but his overriding passion is portraiture.
In the early nineties he had a series of one man exhibitions at Walsall, Wednesbury and Wolverhampton art galleries and since then a series of smaller shows around the region, as well as a couple of group exhibitions.
Rental Agreement for Individual Artists Holding Exhibitions at the Gallery.
The end bay in the upper gallery at Galleryat12 is available, at the discretion of the members, for individual artists or small groups to rent. The upper gallery is about 30ft long by 12ft wide with a barrel roof which reduces ceiling height in some areas to 5ft at one side. The end bay is 10ft long by 12ft wide and is suitable for displaying both wall hung, plinth mounted and free standing items
Promoting and advertising the exhibition.
- The gallery will advertise the event through its own contacts list, web site and by other means that may be available at the time.
It is a condition of hiring the venue that the hirer:
- Will also advertise the event via local newspapers and any other available means.
- Will hold an exhibition launch party on or as near to the start of the exhibition as is practically possible.
- Will invite as many of their own contacts as possible to the launch party in order to promote their own exhibition and to promote ‘Gallery at 12’ to a wider community.
(The launch party need only be a simple affair with a few drinks and snack food made available. See also ‘Facilities available’.) The cost of this is to be borne by the individual or group.
Members of the gallery staff will be on hand during the launch to handle sales.
The upper gallery has daylight quality lighting and a number of 13amp outlets.
The gallery uses Perlon hanging systems. All wall hung items should therefore be provided with cord hanging systems. Individual wall hung items should not exceed 5kg in weight. If in doubt please contact the gallery to discuss.
The gallery has a range of lockable cabinets and plinths for display. Please discuss your needs before booking. Hirers are welcome to bring their own plinths but these must be plain white.
The gallery can accept customer payments by cash, cheque, debit or credit cards. See Charges for details.
Glasses, plates and serving tables are available as part of the package.
The gallery has the use of kitchen and toilet facilities for the use of hirers and guests.
A small storage area is available for packaging materials and for replacement items.
More space may be available by negotiation.
