Catch the Last two Days of the Pop-Up Gallery at Royal Victoria Place
Royal Victoria Place has thrown its support behind 26 local artists from Tunbridge Wells with the successful hosting of a new pop-up gallery.
Taking residency on the lower mall of the centre until tomorrow, the 23rd June. The exhibition has been curated by the team of Tunbridge Wells based artists, showcasing work including paintings, mixed media, ceramics, glass and jewellery.
Each piece displayed is available for purchase by directly contacting the artists, who’s details appear alongside their work, and the pop-up gallery has appeared as part of a wider exhibition led by South East Open Studios.
Now in their 24th year, South East Open Studios is an established annual arts event in the South East, providing communities in Kent with the chance to meet artists from their local area and support the development of their skills.
Royal Victoria Place has displayed the works in some of its void units until they receive new inhabitants, enabling visitors to enjoy the brightly coloured pieces throughout the lower mall, and once the exhibition closes on the 23rd June, the centre will continue to display local artists’ work throughout the year.
Claudia Wiegand at South East Open Studios, said: “It’s great to see our artists’ work take pride of place and brighten up the windows of Royal Victoria Place this Spring. We’re thrilled the centre has provided us with a space to share art with the local community and we hope this helps raise the profile of our thriving arts community .”
Nicky Blanchard, centre manager at Royal Victoria Place, added: “It’s been fantastic to support artists from Tunbridge Wells by showcasing their work in Royal Victoria Place. From paintings to ceramics, there’s something for everyone to add to their art collection at home.
“Our visitors have been loving the pieces we’ve dotted around the centre and there has been a lot of interest for the artists involved in the pop-up gallery.”
