Richmond’s largest showcase of artists comes to The Station next week.
The venue is gearing up for its biggest exhibition of the year this week as final preparations for A Spot on the Wall take place.
This year’s event sees over 60 amateur and professional artists come together to fill the walls of the old station building with an extensive collection of works, all of which are for sale.
Gallery co-ordinator Jenny Rasbeary said: “This exhibition is so special as it brings together such a huge range of talented artists.
“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.
“As well as this, as a piece of art is sold from the artist’s spot, they replace it with another.
“This is perfect for the artist, as there are virtually unlimited opportunities for sales, but it is also great for visitors, as the exhibition looks different every time.”
A special feature for this year’s exhibition is The Station’s online Facebook preview event on Monday, November 30 from 7pm.
For the first time, art lovers will be able to view and purchase pieces of work from the exhibition before it officially opens on December 3.
Communications co-ordinator, Jemma Gregory, said: “It’s a pleasure to be able to offer an online preview for this exhibition.
“We have had to adapt many times over the last few months, due to various Covid-related restrictions, and this is hopefully the start of a regular feature for us.
“We hope that our customers will enjoy shopping or simply browsing some fantastic art, from the comfort of their home, before coming to see the exhibition in person once we reopen.”
See A Spot on the Wall from December 3 to February 3 at The Station, Richmond.
