With the success our art gallery co-operative is currently seeing, now’s the time to snap up works that have the potential to rise in value.
The Art Shed is an art gallery co-operative of 15 local artists. From photography to sculpture, ceramics to glassware there’s art for all tastes and budgets. Recently, the co-operative has had great cause for celebration with two of its members showing work in high profile exhibitions. Read on to find out who.
Photographer Sue Roche has had an image from her ‘Spirit of Salsa’ series accepted for the 2016 Royal Photographic Society Visual Arts Members’ Exhibition which has just opened at Fairfield Halls in Croydon. The exhibition will be touring later this year, touching down at The Edinburgh International Festival in August. Sue’s work is very much in demand at the moment; her photo of Battersea Power Station was a best seller for The Art Shed in the run up to Christmas. Even one of the directors of the company that owns the London landmark has the print hanging in her home.
Pratima Kramer, who specialises in mixed media and ceramics, has been nominated for the prestigious International Arts & Crafts Design award. The organisers were impressed with her use of colours and technique and how she managed to capture the rich and vibrant culture of India. Pratima will be giving a talk about her work at The Art Shed Spring exhibition launch on the evening of 3rd March.
Art Deal of the Month
If you have a penchant for pottery, Su Rogers’s Sgraffito pot is on sale this month for £110, down from £120. Considering this piece is 55cm tall, this really is affordable art. All her works are crafted using the ancient technique of coiling and are inspired by Aztec and African cultures as well as the natural world. They are suitable for display outdoor and are frost proof.
If you’re contemplating buying art as an investment or are already an avid collector, be sure to pay a visit to our courtyard art gallery – hub of Surrey’s art scene.
