After last years success, Elephantstones Gallery is taking part in the Derbyshire Open Arts Weekend 2019. I will be exhibiting a selection of line work inspired by the landscape alongside landscape photography by Simon Bridges.
‘Historically, artists would visit the galleries to add final touches to their work in situ. Today, Varnishing Day remains a part of the Summer tradition, but it’s now mostly a day to celebrate the artists in the show – if a slightly weird one. Before visiting the show, the artists gather in the courtyard, form a procession down Piccadilly led by a steel band, then attend an artists’ blessing at St. James’s church.’
Thank you to everyone who stopped by. What a fantastic exhibition!
The exhibition will run throughout the May Bank Holiday weekend (26th-28th) , until Friday 1st of June. 10am - 5pm
If you come along to the gallery you'll find a selection of brand new photography, line work and ceramics. All the works will be for sale!
We will be having a celebratory preview night on Friday 27th of May
7-9pm. If you would like to come, pop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call in! Drinks and nibbles will abound!
See you there!!!!

‘In celebration of our 250th anniversary, Grayson Perry RA coordinated the biggest, brightest and most colourful Summer Exhibition yet.
Each summer our galleries are jam-packed with contemporary art made by internationally renowned artists and exciting new talent. In 2018, Grayson Perry RA and his committee of fellow artists handpicked over 1,300 artworks in an array of mediums.
The Summer Exhibition included a monumental sculpture by Anish Kapoor RA in the RA courtyard, while vast new works by David Hockney RA and Joana Vasconcelos appeared in the galleries. Artists Mona Hatoum and Tal R showed alongside Royal Academicians including Wolfgang Tillmans, Mike Nelson, Tracey Emin and Rose Wylie, and Honorary Academicians Bruce Nauman and Ed Ruscha.’
‘A new exhibition inspired by Bury Art Museum’s First World War archive will feature work from staff and students at Manchester Metropolitan University.
The exhibition is curated by Jacqueline Butler, Head of Media at Manchester School of Art, and is inspired by the Beyond the Battlefields exhibition she co-curated with Professor Melanie Tebbutt at Grosvenor Gallery last month.
The artists will be working across a range of media to create interventions in the museum’s First World War exhibition spaces.’
