Our incredibly popular Framing Service now has an even greater choice

The Gallery decided to extend it’s framing service a year ago and its been received extremely well by all.

The Gallery pride themselves on maintaining a high quality of materials, workmanship and customer service. We have a great selection of mounts, mouldings and glass to suit any job and turn around high-quality results in a matter of weeks. We now have over 11 types of Glass, 150 different Mounts and 500+ Mouldings all carefully selected by us.

Chris and Jilly have a great artistic eye and work closely with ever customer to achieve the best possible results, which is key to the perfect outcome. We never forget that we’re temporary custodians of your precious, priceless and often irreplaceable artwork.

Our Cross Stritch and Merchandise framing has also become extremely popular as some framers don’t take on these difficult and multi-disciplined jobs.

The Gallery selects its products and partners to ensure ready availability, a good range offering and excellent return times. Services are not just new mounts and frames, but also include:

  • New Mounts and Frames – multi aperture mounts, oral/irregular mounts

Bespoke handmade and hand painted plinth, with invisible fixing and box framed without glass – all colour match to club colours

It’s all in the detail – good tape/cord handing practices and wrapped for collection

Remastering an old image from a photo, new mounts and frame – what a transformation!!

Artist Studio Clearance 2023 Now Open

The Gallery has now opened its annual Artist Studio Clearance Event, with huge discounts on artworks both 2D and 3D.

This extremely popular event gives artists the opportunity to clear out their studios in readiness for another year of creativity, with older unsold works, studies, commission samplers and previous painting styles being promoted at incredibly reduced rates.

Grab a massive bargain while you can, as stocks are very limited and go fast.

Clearance includes: selected greeting cards, pre-made standard frames, limited editions prints, original watercolours/acrylics/mixed media, ceramics, 2023 calendars, cushions and canvasses, from over 30 different artists.

Framing Services (not included in the clearance) continue as normal, with a large range of mounts and mouldings, professionally produced to the highest standard with good turn around times.

Don’t panic Mr Mainwaring – we can still do your framing jobs ready for Christmas!

The Gallery will be able to turn your framing jobs around in time for Christmas, we are also open every day now until lunch time-ish Christmas Eve. Sundays 11:00am till 4:00pm and Monday to Saturdays 10:00am till 6:00pm. Please see below for cut off dates for framing types.

Many people will be going away for Christmas week and will require their framing back by Saturday 17th – not a problem for us but I will need to get all orders in by 4pm on Sunday 11th, in order to complete them by 15th or 16th.

Hanging Services available until Friday 23rd December – this service is by appointment only

Normal Framing, replacement glass, mounts and repair and refresh, need to be ordered by Sunday 18th December (by 4PM) – these will be returned when ready between 21st and 23rd December

Cross Stitches need to be ordered by Sunday 11th December (by 4PM)

Box Framing for 3D work (medals, sports equipment, memorabilia etc) Need to be ordered by Sunday 11th December (by 4PM)

Canvas Stretching need to be ordered by Thursday 8th December (by 6PM)

Special imported frame mouldings and Canvas Stretching can’t be assured as we are reliant on 3rd Parties and Shipping Agents. Please don’t leave things until the last minute, if you can avoid it as due to the nature of natural materials, seasonal supply chains and unexpected errors, it’s impossible for anyone to guarantee all jobs will be completed on time for Christmas – but it’s very rare for us not to meet our deadlines.

Orders can still be taken up to 12 noon on 24th December by these will not be ready until mid-January

Judges Comments: Well thought out portrait and design. Good handling of the media used and colours.

Andrea Crane – 1st Prize Winner of Class 803 Mixed Media

Sofia Lopez – 1st Prize Winner Class 808 Under 18’s

Meet The Artist Evening – Watercolour Artist, Kirstie Trobe

The Gallery has the pleasure to announce its July Meet the Artist Evening

Meet the Artist Evening with Watercolour Artist and Art Tutor Kirstie Trobe, on Friday 29th July from 5pm till 8pm at The Gallery, High Street, Pershore, WR10 1EU.

Meet the Artist – Kirstie Trobe

Kirstie is a Worcestershire based fine artist and art tutor, producing not just beautiful original artwork and undertaking private commissions, but classes and workshops too.

She has works represented at the Royal Society of British Artists Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London and has been selected twice as a finalist in the Broadway Arts Festival, as well as a very popular feature in the annual Worcestershire Open Studios Event (20th – 29th August 2022).

“I work primarily in watercolour, mainly from photographs (animals and children make poor sitters), and occasionally in pastel. However, underlying any work is the basic fundamental, drawing. It’s something that should be practised regularly so I feel very privileged to be able to transfer this skill from my drawing demonstrations in my art classes to a finished painting.” – Kirstie Trobe

Friday 29th July 5pm till 8pm

The Gallery, High Street, Pershore, WR10 1EU

For more information on her work please visit Kirstie Trobe Fine Art : http://www.kirstietrobefineart.com

The Gallery supports the 2022 Pershore Open Gardens

The Gallery is pleased to announce that it’ll be open on Sunday 12th June from 11am till 4pm in support of the 2022 Pershore Open Gardens. This is in addition to its normal Saturday 10am till 6pm hours.

The Gallery wishes to offer visitors to Pershore the opportunity to pop into the art gallery on the High Street during this beautiful and colourful event. Pershore is blessed with a number of great annual events and being part of the National Open Garden Scheme is just one of them.

Pershore Gardens

Most years about twenty gardens open in Pershore. This small town has been opening gardens as part of the NGS for 50 years, almost continuously. In those days the open gardens were in the Georgian heart of the town but now, gardens open from all over the town. Some gardens are surprisingly large, well over an acre, while others are courtyard gardens. All have their individual appeal and present great variety. The wealth of pubs, restaurants and cafes offer ample opportunities for refreshment while the Abbey and the River Avon are some of the many points of interest in this market town. Tickets, which take the form of a map and garden descriptions, are valid for both days. They can be purchased a week before the event at ‘Blue’ in Broad Street or at the Town Hall. On the weekend they can be bought at Number 8 Community Arts Centre in the High Street and any open garden.

Gardens are open all over the town including Bridge street B4084, Broad Street, Newlands, Defford Road, Station road, Cherry Orchard, Priest Lane & Hunter Rise (off Three Springs Road).

Admission: Adult: £7.50, Child: Free

Private Home Visit helps 3 of Bryan B Kelly’s work to find their forever home

Chris from The Gallery had the pleasure of undertaking a private home visit this morning to present and discuss the works of The Gallery’s guest artist Bryan B Kelly. Chris assisted the Croome based couple on which works were best suited for the chosen room, where and how they could be located to produce the greatest effect and impact while being sympathetic to the furniture and seasonal changes of the room. The works now reside in a beautifully presented home, with pride of place in the main living area.

Bryan B Kelly’s Yellow Door, Green Door and Red Door all now SOLD

Private Home Visits are available from The Gallery by appointment only, please contact Chris on 07713 055 999 to discuss your particular requirements.
