In the café area we host exhibitions of local artists' work and a separate showcase of local crafts.
The work is on show for 6 weeks and sometimes begins with a private view.
Paintings and photographs are for sale and the shop take a small percentage of any pictures sold.
Our art committee consists of three local people (two artists and one member of the Village Shop Committee), who are very keen to maintain a reasonably high standard of work, so the artists are asked to send some reproductions of their work and a summary of any exhibitions they have been a part of.
You can view or download a leaflet with details of forthcoming exhibitors for 2013/2014 here - just click or right-click on the image below.
Notes for Exhibitors:
If you are interested in exhibiting in 2014/2015, you can download an application form and print it out and send it, with a selection of photographs of your work, to the shop. Full instructions can be found in the application form. If you are unable to download or print the form, they can be obtained by emailing or visiting the Brockweir Village Shop.
Following on from Sarah Cheese’s glorious embroidered pictures, we again have the benefit of Thomas Bradley’s thought-provoking photographic work.
Thomas has worked for several prestigious organisations such as HEAL Africa, Leprosy Mission International and the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, and his documentary work has been widely published. He has also amassed a large collection of exotic and varied landscape shots, which will be shown at the Village Shop, along with some of the local area to provide contrast and perspective. These will be available to see and to buy from 10 June until 22 July.
The lovely ceramic work of Michele Snowdon will continue to be on sale on the craft shelves for the same period.
If you haven’t already treated yourself or your friends to one of her covetable mugs, jugs or bowls, you have a little longer to make a purchase!
There is also a new permanent attraction on show, to tempt visitors to the redecorated café, which is the splendid wall hanging created by a talented number of local residents. This wonderful work shows the local area and attractions rendered in a mix of fabrics and textiles.
