Our Travelling Gallery - NB Hekla Pop-Up Art Gallery - Hekla is a narrowboat currently winding its way along the canal and river networks around Britain bringing the gallery to the public. We have begun an adventure much like the travellers of the long voyages which brought back to England a menagerie of enchantments and diversities which became a cabinet of curiosities. As our gallery grows it will reflect a diverse collection not unlike that of a museum than that of just a gallery - with a variety of fact and fiction, written, found or made – making it our own cabinet of curiosities.
In the beginning…. Our first ventures started out as solo events; that of a gallery exhibition showing original drawings, paintings, prints and cards. We have enjoyed a good response; whilst gaining momentum and processing ideas in an attempt to articulate what we are about. Our plans for next year will be a curious collection to compliment drawings and paintings.
Dates for your diary: Artisan Market, Middlewich 28th & 29th November : Santa / Christmas Market, Anderton Boat Life, Nantwich 6th & 7th December
Along the way…. In Middlewich we met up with another travelling gallery called “Wånderlust“ two artists Magda creating Land Art, Poetry and Sculpture and her partner Berth who is a contemporary sculptor. We make a good partnership with each boat complimenting the other. Link to Wanderlust : http://dabe-art.org/
We hope you will join us along the way as we hope to become part of an art link; linking Art, Artists, poetry, poets, Sculptures, sculptors, Land Art, Photographers, photography, dance, dancers, minstrels… making art come alive!
