(Guest post by Stephanie Province)
When we reopened The Ship in Overton in March 2016, Phil and I decided to promote live music and art exhibitions as an integral part of our pub. We now host regular music nights and we’ve created two art galleries:
- Edge at Overton is our main gallery where we have
temporary exhibitions changing every 2 months.
- Upstairs in our Bohemia Room, there is a variety of artworks by mainly
local artists. This display changes about once a quarter.
Most of the artwork on show is for sale.
We will be holding our 2nd Open Exhibition in September and October. Last year’s Open Exhibition was very successful and culminated in the presentation of ‘The Judges Award’ and ‘The People’s Award’. The judge last year was Theresa Taylor, an inter-disciplinery artist who exhibits nationally and internationally. The other award was decided by customers votes (one per person).
For further information about this year’s open exhibition, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Once a quarter, we hold an ‘Artist’s Soiree’ in our Bohemia Room as an opportunity for local artists to get together and ‘network’ in a social setting. We provide complimentary wine, soft drinks and nibbles.
Please check our Facebook page for more details about events and opening hours at The Ship.
With best wishes,
