Under The Bed Sale 2016


"The ‘Under The Bed Sale’ is back.  The gallery has lost count of how many Under The Bed Sales it has hosted but as it is now such a popular feature on the gallery calendar, there may just be a riot if we decided not to host it!”  Karen Sherwood

Doors open at 10am Tuesday 12th January

Exhibition run: Tuesday 12 January – Saturday 30 January
Evening Opening; Friday 15 January, 7.30pm onwards – hospitality provided.
  The basic premise is this:

Artists are constantly making work and therefore they nearly always have older and early work in their studios or in storage that they would no longer feel comfortable to exhibit with up to date or newer work.  This ‘Sale’ therefore is an opportunity to show that out of date or no longer favoured pieces, old sketch books, old life drawings, tests, samples, slight seconds etc and sell them!  An added bonus for some artists is that this event is completely ‘non selected’ so everything that gets brought to Cupola gets put out – as long as it original work and unlikely to cause offence(!)*
 
*The gallery does reserve the right to withdraw items from the sale it deems unsuitable.
