David Pugh – Collages
2nd – 8th December 2015

The photographs by Martin Piercy are taken from an archive of 20,000+ images which spans almost 50 years, and includes both traditional silver-based and digital technologies. They are examples covering a number of photographic genres: portrait, self-portrait, landscape and the built environment, abstract, photomontage, close-up, black and white, and image manipulation.

David Pugh assembles and creates collages using an eclectic and constantly varying range of materials and techniques, using scissors, scalpels, glue, paper, paints, inks, card, books, magazines, photographs, mirrors, figurines, lights, found objects. Large or small, framed or mounted, simple or complex, each one is unique.

The Gardens were originally developed in the early 1800's and its centrepiece is the Bandstand.

Facing the Bandstand is the Proscenium Building where we now have our Gallery.

  1. There is wheelchair access to the gallery from the path between the tennis courts and the gallery.
  2. For exhibitors delivering their work, there is a locked bollard to be removed at the gardens entrance. See link below for details.
  3. Unfortunately, there is no disabled parking in the gardens.
  4. Exhibitors should take care to design their exhibition layout with wheelchair use in mind.

 Typical annual foot-fall is 22000.

If we take out the impact of Festivals then the weekly average is 400 per week.

This varies according to the variables of weather, social media, networking, number of artists, and the appeal of the Exhibition
