Spot on the Wall exhibition to open at The Station

Art on the wall at The Station.

Dozens of artists will showcase their work at The Station over the coming weeks.

This year’s Spot on the Wall exhibition at the Richmond venue sees more than 60 amateur and professional painters, photographers and sculptors come together to fill the walls and cabinets of the old station building with an extensive collection of works, all of which are for sale.

“This exhibition is so special as it brings together such a huge range of talented artists,” said communications coordinator Jemma Gregory.

“Whether this is their first exhibition, or they have been exhibiting for years, as a profession or a hobby, they sit side by side on the walls of our beautiful building.”

Each time a piece of art is sold from the artist’s spot, they replace it with another.

“This is great for the artist, as there are virtually unlimited opportunities for sales,” added Jemma.

“It is also great for visitors, as the exhibition looks different every time.”

A Spot on the Wall runs from January 25 to February 26.

With art exhibitions, 3D art shop, café bar and three-screen cinema, plus independent food and drink producers, there is plenty more happening at The Station this year.
