Art@Clyde&Co is a continuing series of art exhibitions, four per year, arranged within the offices of Clyde&Co – a major firm of solicitors with an office in Guildford.
Currently on hold, this programme has been running successfully for over 15 years.
It has provided a valuable platform for the display of works by painters, photographers, print makers, ceramicists and sculptors and indeed any kind of visual artist located within the Guildford area, London and the South East.
Most, but by no means all, exhibiting artists are professionally qualified and are readily able to provide a selection of work – typically six to eight pieces depending upon size.
Participation is by invitation.
The aims of the programme are:
- enhance the quality of the working environment
- encourage a broader awareness of the visual arts
- promote the work of visual artists
- generate funding for the arts
Exhibitions continue for a three month period and are viewed by staff, company clients, Guildford Arts members and, by arrangement, members of the public.
A private viewing is held for each exhibition attended by members of GA, their guests and guests of the exhibiting artists. Most exhibits are available for purchase. Some works may be on view to obtain commissions.
The host organisation generously provides the catalogue and food and drink for the private viewings. They also place details of the exhibitions on their company intranet so providing, potentially, international exposure for exhibiting artists.
(Until recently, exhibitions were also held in the offices of RSM, accountants. Sadly these have recently ceased but Guildford Arts is most grateful for the support received from RSM – previously Baker Tilly – over the many exhibitions that were arranged during some 13 years).
