We’re Here…

Well, that was a disappointing start to the day. We got up extra early and came down to the gallery expecting a full on bun fight for parking spaces and…

SerenArts Gallery Facebook

To all the people who follow SerenArts Gallery on social media I would like to apologise for any unwanted invites and promotional stuff you may have received today. You will probably be aware that I always use our Blog to communicate via the various platforms, as they are all linked to this. I am ashamed to admit that I went on to our Facebook page and started prodding buttons I had no business touching!!! Promise not to tinker again!

Wait a Minnow

serenarts gallery kingfisher trail

We mentioned a few weeks back that he was on his way… well he’s landed… ‘Wait a Minnow‘ is on his plinth in Westbury Gardens, outside the Tourist Information Centre, to promote two Cotswold walking trails, which Bradford on Avon are now part of. The trails will be available online and via a smartphone App.

There will be some more smaller kingfishers coming to the Shambles this week as well, so hopefully it will all bring a little cheer and some visitors to the Town.

As a little nod to these events Serena has painted a small 6″ square acrylic on canvas: ‘Watching’…

Open for Business

serenarts gallery - tithe barn open again

It’s great to see the magnificent Tithe Barn open its doors to the public again after all this time… and plenty of room in there for social distancing!

If you’re heading down to the Barton Farm area for a paddle along the river or a picnic in the park, why not pop in and visit the Tithebarn Workshops. Unique shops set in beautiful gardens, offering a range of arts, crafts and gifts.

What’s on at Barton Farm?

We know the weather is making this feel more like a Bank Holiday weekend, but it is worth braving the elements and heading down to Barton Farm and the Tithebarn Workshops today…

serenarts gallery cygnets arrive at barton farm

Mummy and Daddy Swan have decided to relocate to Barton Bridge where they have attracted one or two photographers! Looks like the resident kingfisher might get the hump with all the lenses pointed at the new cygnets. If you are launching a kayak or paddle board from here, please be mindful and keep your distance.

It is also very good to see the first exhibition returning to the West Barn in well over a year…

serenarts gallery exhibitions return to the west barn

This was them just setting up this morning when I went for my walk. There will be paintings, potter, laser cut design, textiles and wirework on show from artists: Gina Belford, Kate Westcott, Andrew Eddleston, Karen George, Natty Deco and Gaynor Leverett-Jaques. Good luck to you all.

We look forward to seeing you all soon.

Impromptu Live Music

Who’s up for a little bit of socially distanced music at the Tithebarn Workshops?! Eager to find somewhere to practice, the offer of our garden was enough to persuade Tim and a couple of his muso mates to bring their instruments down and treat us all to a bit of much needed music.

If you’re in the Barton Farm area tomorrow, why not pop along for a bit of retail therapy, a cuppa at the cafe and sit in the sun listening to the musical melodies!
