Ever considered holding your own exhibition of your work? It can be a somewhat daunting prospect having your work on public display for the first time, thoughts of whether your work will be liked or ridiculed, will your images sell to meet the costs, even finding a suitable venue to host your exhibition can be a daunting task.
Well, a few days ago I was delighted to be able to attend the opening of a brand new gallery and exhibition area at the Patchings Art Centre near Calverton, Nottinghamshire that may make this decision a little easier. Titled ‘The Image Gallery’ it is the brainchild of two award winning photographers Pete Bridgewood and Chris Upton who have both held their own exhibitions in one of the other gallery areas at the Patchings but have now created a more permanent presence with a twist.
First up on their list of guest photographers is another award winning photographer, Doug Chinnery, who is embarking on holding his very first solo exhibition. Entitled ‘Time Passing’ his work will be on display from 7th May 2011, I highly reccomend paying a visit.
The Patchings complex is a wonderful venue in itself, with various art and craft exhibitions, an image framer and a fantastic cafe, so, its well worth a visit to be immersed and maybe inspired by the wonderful work on display.
