ARTY XMAS SHOPPING AT STUDIO & GALLERY 22B!

We are joining forces with our fellow artists at Soughbridge Mill, to get you away from Amazon and shopping locally and artily this Christmas! On Saturday and Sunday 10th and 11th of November we are hanging up the fairy lights, warming up the mulled wine and opening our studio doors. You will be able to buy direct from the artist unique, original and quality gifts, with items to suit all purses.

Of course, here at Studio22B we are open every weekend anyway, so if you can’t make it on the 10th/11th please call in another time.

GIFT EXCHANGE SERVICE!
Of course we realise that buying art as a gift can be a tricky. Therefore, we are happy to exchange any Studio22B prezzies (excluding commissioned frames and repro) after Christmas for an item of equivelent value.

In the meantime, here are some winter scenes from us which make lovely Xmas cards. All our cards are £2 each or three for £5. As an additional yuletide offer, we are also doing six cards for £9 – just £1.50 each.

Hall St Blues POP UP Gallery August 2018 Sat & Sun 11-6pm

If you are going to Colne Blues Festival this weekend, you might want to take in the Pop Up Gallery too.  This is the second year Aly has transformed her home into a gallery. If you wish to rest your ears whilst exercising the eyeballs, its the ideal location! Delicious homemade cakes and brews are also on offer from only £1:

Menu (as looking at moment – may vary on the day)
Vegan chocolate cake £1 a Slice
Spanish almond and orange cake (gluten free)£1.50 a slice
Banana Bread £1 a Slice
Cheese and Courgette Scones £1.50 each
Tea – regular and various herbals £1 a cup
Coffee – ‘proper’ coffee or instant  £1 for instant, £1.50 for the post stuff!
Choice of dairy or non-dairy milk.

At least half a dozen professional local artists will be showing in the gallery. As well as originals there will also be limited edition prints and cards. This is an ideal opportunity to see art in a domestic setting as opposed to the more sterile setting of a gallery.

Trawden Art Trail 2017, 21st and 22nd October.

We are looking forward to Saturday and Sunday, as for once, we get to spend the whole weekend in the pub and the cafe! It’s the first annual Trawden Art Trail and Aly is Artist in Residence at the splendid Old Rock Cafe and Matt is Artist in Residence in the plush surroundings of the Trawden Arms. Both venues have been very generous in lending space for this event. Here are the salient facts:

  1. It is on Saturday and Sunday 10am to 4pm.
  2. The trail is a lovely 1.5 mile walk round Trawden taking in artist studios, an art fair and of course Aly and Matt in their venues.
  3. You will need a ‘trail guide’ to get in the other venues, which is available from the Community Centre for just £1 and is the start of the trail. The map from the guide is reproduced below.

PLEASE POP IN AND SAY HELLO. WE WILL HAVE PRINTS, CARDS AND ORIGINALS, AND MATT WILL ALSO HAVE FRAMING SAMPLES WITH HIM.

Studio&Gallery22B – work in progress

We have been working on our new digs. The new space should be rather lovely by the time we have finished. Our first job is filling annoying cracks and bumps in ceiling, walls and floors. Then we will be on to painting. We are going for white and just a couple of shades of grey – hence the monochromatic theme to this post.

Our home-made blinds, made on my Grandma’s 1951 festival of Britain Singer Sewing machine, will be coming from the old studio. There will be four main areas. One for mount cutting and ‘putting in’, a retail area for prints and cards, and the two main ones of a gallery wall for framed work and a photographer’s studio for portraits, studio shoot and workshops.

We are aiming to be in at the beginning of July and definitely all ship shape for our grand ‘Open Studio&Gallery Warming’ on Sunday July 19th. Watch this space for more details of this event. If you’re wondering where the painter is going to be, she’s next door in a self contained messy space/padded cell.

The Drawing Office

Here’s our studio half a century ago when it was the drawing office of Bristol Tractors. That’s half a century of pencil wielding at 22B. Come and see how things have changed by popping into the studio. You can come to a workshop, Open Studio, exhibition or just call in. If the A board is out we are open!

Invitation – Open Studio Saturday 8th November 2014

 

Pop in any time between 10 and 6 on Saturday. We will once again be doing workshops. Aly will be doing unorthodox things with acrylic paint and Matt will be having fun with freeze frame action photography. Just turn up and join in. It is up to you if you prefer just to peruse the art, have a brew or have a go at a workshop. It is free entry but if you wish to tick a few names off your Xmas shopping list by getting them a calendar or a print whilst simultaneously supporting local artists we won’t stop you! We look forward to seeing you.
