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.

Freda Harris - Artist
Work by Edward Mckenzie - "Friesian Composition"
Born in Newton-le- Willows, Lancashire I studied art at A-Level and continued studying art during Teacher Training at Alsager until spending many happy years as a Primary school teacher. This commitment, my involvement in hockey at Cannock and the raising my two sons took all my time. Though I did study part time with Arthur Berry at Burslem helping maintain my interest in art.
Upon taking early retirement I began painting and producing pictures, while learning and experimenting with different art techniques, which became a serious pastime.
I work in watercolour, acrylics, pastel, oils, mixed media and, in the last 4 years, fabric as well using an embellishing machine to “paint pictures with fabric”. These embellishments I have used to create pictures, cards and pendants.
I am inspired by my surroundings, wherever they may be, and am fascinated by changing weather and painting an adventure, exciting, experimental and surprisingly rewarding.”
I draw my inspiration from the environment—from Cannock Chase and my love of the coastal regions of Pembrokeshire and Northumberland and inland Devon.
I have a studio and gallery in my home in Little Haywood.
I also run Embellishing workshops, If interested please take a leaflet or check out my Facebook page, or website. The ideal is: you find 2 or more friends (up to a maximum of 6), contact me and we arrange a convenient time and date for the workshop. It is relaxing and fun.
