City Gallery Nottingham, Painters’ Open
I noticed a month or two ago that a new gallery opened in Nottingham.
The City Gallery is off Long Row East (that’s where the paving tiles are that I am interested in and have blogged about before).
It’s a “community gallery” which, sorry to say, to me means that not everything in there will be good. Well, there’s one of mine in there at the moment!
I didn’t get to the opening of the Painters’ Open, and as the gallery opening hours are 11 till 4 I find it difficult to visit. I took this snap through the window when the Open was closed. I also tried to get one of my friend Geoff Jones‘s painting but I couldn’t reach it through the glare and the shutter door.
We both managed to get to a poetry reading one evening and we were impressed. Apparently it was the Crystal Clear Poetry Launch Party and the readings were from: Roy Marshall, Aly Stoneman, Charles G Lauder Jr, Andrew MulletProof Graves, Mark Goodwin, Deborah Tyler-Bennett, and Wayne Burrows.
