Ellesmere Update

Sunny Ellesmere!

Most recent news from Diana on the exhibition space in Ellesmere is:

Artist Lucy Wickstead has managed to negotiate a very reasonable price for well visited exhibition space in Ellesmere.
£28 a week with the usual 30% commission. A group of artists, (say 20 ) could share and it would cost very little. Jim Heath tells me that it is a good space and he has exhibited there and sold in the past. Studio A1/Inside Out artists could book a few weeks/ or a month for example. June could be a good time to pick as Tony Roberts and Phillipa Hughes will be doing BVA Open Studios in A1.

Do let us know if you are interested. Lucy would manage the project for us, and we can help distribute PR in Oswestry through Studio A1.

Exhibition Space in Ellesmere

Three Things from Babylon - John S., 2010

Diana and I have recently been approached by someone starting up an exhibition space in Ellesmere. It’s attached to a shop and not a formal gallery, but there’s ample space for multiple artists, is well-lit and has disabled access. The organisers got in touch with Inside Out because they’re keen to establish links with artists from the Oswestry area.

If any of you are interested, get in touch and Diana and I will see about taking this further.

Incidentally, for those of you unfamiliar with the arts in Ellesmere, it’s worth checking out the Ellesmere Sculpture Initiative, with its sculpture trail and programme of international symposia.
