The Bingley Gallery Christmas 2021 Exhibition
With concerns over the global supply chain in the run up to Christmas, it is good to know that locally produced goods are still available, with the additional benefits of minimal transport-related carbon emissions, support for local producers, and the survival of independent retailers.
The Bingley Gallery, has been based on Park Road, Bingley for the past 15 years, originally under the ownership of Jane Fielder and more recently by David Starley. Both are artists themselves, and both continue the tradition of supporting many other talented artists that work in our region by providing exhibition space and marketing for them.
One of the benefits of this is that the difficulties some retailers have had in stocking up for Christmas is not an issue. In contrast, for most artists, the impact of Covid has been such that many outlets, such as art fairs have been curtailed and the move to on-line purchasing remains relatively restricted for original works, for which digital imaging provides a not entirely satisfactory means of representing the product. As a result there is plenty of high quality work on offer.
The Gallery will be launching its traditional Christmas show on Tuesday 16th Nov. It is always something a bit special; a chance for regular exhibitors to prepare new work, the past year’s soloists to return with potential Christmas offerings and to give space to new artists who have caught the eye during the year. The front exhibition space in the gallery will have well-over over 20 artist’s work on show. There is always a little uncertainty as to what turns up on installation day, but an eclectic mix can be expected, with no themes, no tonal co-ordination- and a huge range of media- a true Christmas Variety Show, with something to suit all tastes.
