after 2 years of the creative industries struggling through a pandemic, with galleries closed and practitioners struggling to showcase their work, this exhibitions will bring your work to a new public audience in a professional gallery setting.
Submission of up to 10 images to this exhibition cost £30.00 but this fee covers everything and we guarantee at least 1 of your images will be selected as we favour community over competition.

We will then frame and hang our work in our new black gallery frames acquired from a well respected local frame maker, the work will then be curated and hung in the gallery for a period of 10 days where it will be viewed by members of the public, photographers, artists, curators, journalists etc. The work will also then be displayed on the website and sent to our mailing list of over 1000 people, it will also be shared to thousands of people on social media. The purpose of which is to bring your work to a new much wider audience.
