Frome’s newest pop up gallery with a difference will open on November 27th at 14 Stony Street. The gallery, which will sell a range of local artists and craft-people’s work, has a highly ethical angle with commission from sales going to Positive Action on Cancer (PAC).
Whilst you are searching for the ideal present, a trip to The Good Gallery would not only give you a unique and individually hand-made gift made by a local artists but your purchase will also help to support an amazing and worthwhile local cause.
Featuring regular exhibitors, starting with urban artist Andrew Burns-Colwill, and with a programme of workshops in the pipeline, this gallery will be buzzing. The gallery will have a wide range of artists on show and stock will include locally made jewellery, textiles, scultpture, photography, ceramics, stained glass, bags, upcycled clothing, baskets and much more.
Ruth Knagg from Positive Action on Cancer said ‘We couldn’t be more excited about the launch of this project, which we really feel will benefit so many people in the local community in so many different ways. What could be better than buying a gift or a present for yourself or someone else and knowing that you are supporting both local artists and people who are affected by cancer in our local area.’
The start-up costs and running costs for the first 6 months of the gallery have been funded by Santander, who provided the grant to Positive Action on Cancer to make a difference to the local community.
Public opening of The Good Gallery begins from 27th November onwards, including late opening that day to coincide with the Frome Christmas Extravaganza.
