Best of Nottinghamshire art celebrated in new summer exhibition at the Chapel Art Gallery

Chapel Gallery

The exhibition in the new art gallery at the Framework Knitters Museum in Ruddington will open on Saturday 30 July, as part of the museum’s summer holiday activities. Building on the success of The Chapel Gallery’s inaugural exhibition, the new exhibition will feature work by three more popular local artists: Steve Brazier, Helen Kerry and Julian Pinnick.

Nigel Boughton-Smith from the Nottingham Society of Artists, said, “The feedback we received about the first exhibition has been extremely positive. Nottinghamshire has some amazingly talented people and it’s extremely rewarding to get them in the public eye. We’re really looking forward to presenting the work of the next artists now.”

The Chapel Gallery is a partnership project between the Framework Knitters Museum and the Nottingham Society of Artists. Regular exhibitions throughout the year will showcase some of the best artists in Nottinghamshire, and will be supplemented by a varied event programme, including an acoustic music session during the museum’s annual garden party on August Bank Holiday Monday.

Paul Baker, museum manager, said “We’re incredibly pleased with the reception of the new gallery and its first exhibition. It’s fantastic being able to add another aspect to our customers’ visit, without it costing them anything extra”.

The Chapel Gallery is open Friday to Saturday, 11am to 4:30pm and Sunday from 1:30pm to 4:30pm. Entrance to the gallery is free, whilst normal admission fees apply to the museum. The museum shop and café is open to all visitors, as well as the general public, to purchase refreshments and souvenirs as usual.

If you’d like to know more about the Chapel Gallery project, please contact the museum on 0115 984 6914. Further details of the exhibition and event programme will soon be available on their website, www.frameworkknittersmuseum.org.uk.
