Bluewater pop up shop!
Well if you haven’t seen us in Bluewater Shopping Centre – you are missing a treat!
We have been exhibiting for 3 and half weeks now and the art works are flying out of the door.
Everyone is very interested in the ‘what if…?’ project and making use of empty shops and many visitors have promised to visit Dartford to become part of this exciting venture.
We are hoping to have another pop-up shop soon so please be part of the ‘what if…?’ culture and become a Friend or participating artist.
Meanwhile in the Dartford shop we continue as normal with some more outstanding artists exhibiting in our main gallery.
From 7th until 21st September 2015 we have Ann Marshall/Hazel Christine and Julie Woolnough exhibiting their works
Please come in and see!
See more at our Facebook page.
From Friday 14th August until Saturday 25th September 2015 we will be exhibiting selected artists work at this prestigious venue.
The pop-up shop is situated near House of Fraser (ground Floor) opposite Halifax Building Society and opposite ALL Saints clothing shop.
We will be raising money for the ‘what if…?’ gallery in Dartford.
Please COME ALONG AND SEE THE DEMO’S AND JOIN THE WORKSHOPS!! WE WILL BE THERE EVERY DAY FROM 10AM UNTIL 6PM except on Sundays which will be 11-5pm.
Our hours of opening at the Dartford Gallery have changed slightly – we will be open every day (except Sundays) from 10-5pm but ON SATURDAYS we will now open at 11am – 5pm. This is to accommodate a SING AND SIGN workshop for children from as young as 3 months to 3 or 4 years old to learn sign language. Thank you for your understanding.
The title of Mark Leadbetter’s second sculpture show is an excerpt from a very sweet (albeit poorly spelled) message from a young visitor to his first.
As such ‘My Favriout [sic] Art’ celebrates youthful optimism, reveling in the childish and nonsensical.
Works featured are playful re-imaginings of popular culture: cartoons, rock stars, childhood toys. Warmly nostalgic, but also jaded by notions of grinding repitition, decline, growing old and falling from grace.
CHILDREN’S COLLAGE WORKSHOP
On THURSDAY 30TH JULY Fiona Spirals will lead a Collage (paper craft) workshop for the children and the cost will be just £3 each child.
Please note – we are now full for this workshop!! Sorry
