Affordable works on a small scale by artists from the Royal Watercolour Society and the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers. Contemporary watercolours and original prints, both framed and unframed, may be taken away immediately. Prices start at £50

I’m always rather surprised more national and local art galleries don’t do something similar. I’ve visited this show in the past and come away with what I regarded as some real bargains.

Mall Galleries: no exhibitions

I can’t remember the last time (prior to the pandemic and other than last year due to surgery) when I didn’t visit the Mall Galleries in January and February – but maybe that’s because there’s fewer art competitions?

Personally I don’t get it. Summer months provide a lot more competition for people’s time. Having a nice exhibition to go to during the winter months is to my mind an excellent outing! Bottom line it all depends on what the impact is on the number of visitors to the exhibition – and the number of sales….
