Stuck for something to do this weekend?
If you fancy indulging in some fantastic art, in a lovely welcoming gallery with a few drinks and nibbles on the side, get yourself over to to Castle Donington this weekend.
The launch party for the Tarpey Gallery Open 2021 is this Saturday (23rd October) from 2 - 5pm.
My Painting 'Factory Gates' is featured amongst the work and you can see a sneaky peek of it in situ below.
The exhibition is a varied mix of painters, printmakers, ceramicists, photographers and sculptors, with over 70 artists, in 4 gallery spaces over 2 floors.
There's tons to look at, and I'm positive you'll find something to enjoy and inspire you. When I dropped my painting off, everything was in preparation, so I'm excited to view the completed show myself!
I'll be there tomorrow, so it would be lovely to see you if you can make it (the more, the merrier!), but if you already have plans, there's still plenty of time to visit.
The Tarpey Gallery Open 2021 runs until 14 November 2021.
I do recommend visiting over the next few weeks if you can.
The Tarpey Gallery is at: 77 High Street, Castle Donington, Derbyshire, DE74 2PQ. Opening Times: Thursday – Sunday 10am – 5pm
