The team at the Artizan Gallery saw a breaking 2018, with more people attending their gallery, as well as their pop-up store in the Torquay town centre during November/December.
However, Director of the Artizan Gallery, Julie Brandon, has little time to celebrate as she is preparing for an even busier 2019, starting in February.
Five Artizan Artists Exhibition
In February the Artizan Gallery will be launching their Five Artizan Artists exhibition.
This two week celebratory show will mark both the start of a busy 2019 for the gallery as well as the official relaunch of their main gallery on Lucius Street, Torquay.
The gallery has recently gone through a period of maintenance and the 13th February, 6pm-8pm will will mark the official reopening.
Speaking ahead of the relaunch, Julie Brandon said:
“As we start off the New Year, it’s almost an intimidating position to be in. Last year saw some awe-inspiring programming across the bay and we know there’s plenty more to come in 2019. We’re looking forward to keeping pace with this progress and hopefully exceeding the expectations of our artists and audiences this year.”
At the event, people who attend will be treated to a showcase of reflection on works from the previous year.
This diverse group of contemporary, South Devon artists made up of award-winning photographic artist Kirsteen Titchener, South Academician, Martin Dutton, the UK’s first colour changing resin artist, Jo West, leading contemporary fine artist, F.G. Davis and chair of the Torbay Guild of Artists, Susan Cavaliere.
Julie Brandon went on to say:
“We’ve got some big ideas for external projects as well as developing spaces here on Lucius Street which we’re looking forward to announcing in the Spring”
If 2018 is anything to go on, the calendar is certainly going to be jam packed with exciting and inspiring exhibitions being just the tip of the iceberg.
The Artizan Gallery officially reopens on the 13th February 2019, more details are available directly from the Artizan Gallery website.
