SALON 10 – OPENS 13th October 2018 – 3pm – 5.30pm – All welcome
Salon: a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine taste and increase their knowledge of the participants through conversation. These gatherings often consciously followed Horace’s definition of the aims of poetry, ‘either to please or to educate’
Continues until 3rd November 2018
Salon 10 is the 10th Salon to be held at The Old Lock Up – The shows began in 2012 – whilst the gallery was occupied as an artists studio by Rachael Pinks Et al.
The shows were originally one night only happenings – with the aim of bringing together a diversity of work from across the Midlands region which is rarely shown within the Derbyshire area.
Gallerist and owner of the Old Lock up Gallery – Rachael Pinks developed the idea for the shows due to having a desire to view and celebrate the diversity of art and exhibit work that she loves and is passionate about! A following for the shows soon developed and the one night only shows attracted audiences of 100+.
After a 2 year break the exhibitions return to the space and Salon 10 has been curated by Rachael Pinks and Mandy Payne. No longer a one night only event – they have been extended as part of the galleries programme of exhibitions – due to popular demand. We hope you can join us for Salon 10 – an exhibition of eight Contemporary Artists work from across the UK.
