The Gallery is an attractive intimate space on the ground floor of the Museum in the centre of the town. Leading into the Jekyll style walled garden, this is a doubly pleasant place to visit when viewing an exhibition. The enhanced frontage and entrance to the museum as part of the Council Offices have increased its prominence which is close to the historic Pepperpot and Church Street.
The gallery hiring charges have always been kept at a reasonable rate in order that it be available to local artists and only a small commission is charged on work sold. Unusually, as a result of the covid pandemic, there are some slots available in the first half of 2022 in this popular venue.
Godalming Museum Gallery offers artists exhibition slots of 3-4 weeks throughout the year. The hanging system for strung pictures is very simple, flexible and versatile and allows for pictures to be hung above each other . The gallery walls are all velcro friendly and so unframed mounted prints are easily displayed. As a guide, there is room for around 30 A3 size artworks on the walls. A deep full length 3 feet wide shelved glass cabinet is available for 3D objects.
If you are interested in exhibiting in the Museum Gallery please contact the Exhibitions Organiser Nansi Taylor for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
Founded in 2019 the Yellow Edge Gallery is one of Hampshire’s newest contemporary art galleries. It is not a commercial gallery, but instead was set up to provide artists with a space of their own to exhibit, discuss, engage and share their work with an audience.
The Gallery is named after the painting ‘Yellow Edge’ by the American artist Barnett Newman (1905 – 1970). Newman is considered to be one of the major figures of abstract expressionism and one of the foremost of the colour-field painters.
Yellow Edge was completed by Newman in 1968 approximately two years before his death in 1970. It was never exhibited in his lifetime. This is the only painting where Newman covered almost the entire surface in dense black; it is also unusual because he placed the vibrant yellow vertical “zip” at the right edge of the canvas. The painting is acrylic on canvas it is 238 x 193 cm in size and is considered to be his last work.
The Gallery aims to specialise in modern and contemporary works and showcase emerging artists working in a variety of media. Its mission is to exhibit contemporary works by practicing artists, promoting and strengthening the community of artists, and fostering new relationships with fellow artists.
Located in a building over 150 years old, Cranleigh Arts Centre is steeped in history. Having been a school for over a century, the venue reopened in 1985 as a full time arts centre, and since then it has gone from strength to strength.
Independently run, with a small core team helped by volunteers, Cranleigh Arts Centre punches considerably above its weight with acts like Ross Noble, Jo Brand, Reginald D Hunter & Eric Clapton often gracing the stage!
