The RIVERSIDEpopupGALLERY is run by a Limited Company. We give a platform for artists to showcase their work during the Summer months at a beautiful Riverside location. The Gallery opens onto the River Beult and can be seen from the Grade I medieval bridge at Yalding, making it a prominent and ideal location to attract visitors.
Yalding is a small village in Kent of less than 3000 residents, but it is a popular tourist destination. We want to encourage more visitors to Yalding by opening RIVERSIDEpopupGALLERY throughout the Summer from March until the third week of October each year.
All work sold will be subject to a 25% commission, but if work is not sold - the opportunity to exhibit will incur a one-off £20 fee which covers a page on this website, a place in the promotional leaflet, Facebook promotion and preview evening. As we do not hold an alcohol licence, we do not supply alcohol for these evenings. However, our artists are able to supply wine for us to serve. We exhibit all forms of art from traditional paintings to sculpture, pottery and photography.
We work with artists to hang and present their work in the best way to enable sales. We also update this website with forthcoming events and archive artists who have already exhibited giving them the additional opportunity to get sales via this website.
We also have a Facebook page called RIVERSIDEpopupGALLERY which is updated regularly with the more fun side to the exhibits and the latest artist featured.
We also work with Yalding Art Group and give them space to work during the Summer months every Thursday morning from 10.00-12.30. Come and see them at work and you may be encouraged to join them when their next term begins. www.yaldingartgroup.weebly.com
We offer free tea and coffee for visitors and like to encourage donations for our nominated charity supported each year. We hold Cream Tea and Crafternoon Teas during the Summer - look at our Events to see the dates.
