This year has been a busy time for me entering other galleries around Birmingham, along with arranging, sorting out the Core Collective Fine Art Exhibitions.
Anchor Gallery at Gunmakers Arms, Birmingham
I have been following Anchor Gallery on twitter for a while now, this is where 1st saw there posting for calling for artists to enter into the gallery.
However, the gallery pops up anywhere around the Midlands which can be argued it never in one place longer another to find a permanent home.
My art on display
Really happy this was sold to the pub.
However, they like to put a different spin on showing art, like it or not it’s different way of displaying art, photos, music and film along with reading poetry.
Only criticism one could lay at their door was unable to identify any artist’s works showing, with an absence of a booklet identifying the artist’s work it remained anonymous
The exhibition was on a week and you had to pay to go and see any of the events they had on!!. I entered 4 paintings showing the story of Our Lady travels around the Gun Quarter in Birmingham
Pete’s & Kevin photos on display.
The location of the Anchor Gallery chosen for this year’s event could not be better, The Gunmakers Arms, what could be better than a pub goes and view art over a pint.
Opening Night was FREE entry unlike the beer & food, but yummy all the same.
Here There be Dragons presented by Anchor Gallery
Fazeley Canal was built for the purpose of goods to be delivered to London. The Gun Quarter would ship the cargo on canal to London. The name of the painting is after the song tune for the Warwickshire Lads to mark the opening of the Birmingham Canal 1769
Proof House built in 1813 is the only business besides London where shotguns, small arms guns barrels are tested before going on sale.
Second Breakfast , proudly hanging up in its new home, so pop down to see it for yourself.
Sweet Leaf, Acrylic painting showing Our Lady visit to the pub, busy place for visitors
