Art < £100
13th February - 26th February 2019
Wednesday 13th – Tuesday 26th February, 11am-4pm
Now in its second year, York Street Gallery and The Gallery @ Nice Things have linked up to present:
Art < £100 (Art Under £100)
Last year's inaugural event produced a great show of very affordable art, generously submitted by the artists or donated by owners. Profits support the Ramsgate Festival, a summer cultural celebration with its 10th anniversary in July 2019.
With a widely varied show of paintings, prints and photographs, as well as mixed media and textiles, it could be a great way to buy your first original painting or find a unique image to cheer your home or office. As the gallery owners say: “Having an original work of art gives lifelong pleasure and it is very rewarding to know you own the only one of something, it is uniquely special. And if you buy a piece, you can also know that the artist will be truly delighted.”
The hugely popular York Street Gallery is run by artist Mike Samson; he has donated a work to the exhibition, so all the value goes to the Festival. Several other artists have also donated pieces. Suzy Humphries runs the gallery at Nice Things and co-founded Ramsgate Arts in 2009.
The show is curated by both galleries, through a selection process. Artists are asked to submit up to three original works, and a hanging fee of £10 applies to each work chosen.
There is an Open Day on Saturday 16 February from 1 – 4pm, with both galleries offering drinks and refreshments. Many of the artists will be there and people are encouraged to come, celebrate and meet the people behind the work on display.
