The group exhibits at the Bent Hill Art Gallery in Felixstowe. Members are invited to submit 2 artworks that are displayed on the walls of this members’ run Felixstowe Art Gallery. The cost of exhibiting is just 50p per painting with a commission payment of 20% of the value of any sales. Members can also submit unframed paintings. The gallery changes all of the art that is on display every 6 weeks.
If you see a painting in the gallery that you wish to purchase but the gallery is closed then you can always contact one of the named members who can liaise with you for collection of the painting. Also, many of the artists are open to doing commissions so please ask if you see something you like that may either be sold or you need something slightly different.
Any member who submits paintings to the gallery is asked to man the gallery for a morning or afternoon during that 6 week period (or as many sessions as they can manage!). The gallery does not have any paid staff so it is entirely up to the members to keep the gallery open and help with sales. Colin Millar is the Gallery Manager.
