Bluewater pop up shop!
We had a fantastic time and sales were amazing but it was only for 6 weeks and we finished in September 2015 – but we are still beavering away in Dartford.
The money raised for our charity will be used to improve the lighting facilities at our Dartford shop where exhibitions and workshops continue as normal. We are hoping to repeat this event in 2016 Keep in touch with ‘what if…?’ or become a Friend.

Just in case you wondered…… The what if…? Gallery is a Community arts project and registered as a charity.

  1. Hi,
    I am an artist printmaker, living and working in Beckenham, Kent.
    I am also part of a printmaking group who came to know each other through printmaking class in Lewisham.
    I / we are looking for opportunities to exhibit my / our work.
    Are you able to offer a space for hire and if so can you give me details of costs etc?
    I will look forward to hearing back from you.

      Please contact Anne on the what if…? Gallery website to enquire,

  4. Do you run printmaking workshops?

  5. I’ve been told I could get an item framed in the gallery. Is this correct?

  6. Hi I don’t know if you can help but I visited the pop up gallery in bluewater and purchased a picture I also say something else I liked but can’t remember the artists name. It was a pen and ink drawing of a fish bowl with blocks of flats in the background with what looked like junk dumped at the bottom of the bowl such as a trolly. Hope you can help me with the name of the artist and a website that I could buy one.
    Many thanks

    • Good morning Nichola.
      Thank you for your enquiry regarding our fine artist David Boughton (a.k.a. El Davo) his work is very collectable and I have passed your email address to him, so he can contact you directly.
      Please do not hesitate to contact me if there are any problems. Look out for us later in the year when we hope to be at Bluewater again where Dave will be exhibiting some more of his work – many thanks
      from Ruth @ what if…Gallery
