Spot Your House!

Let’s have a quick game of spot your house!…

I came across this aerial photo of the Barton Farm and surrounding area when I was going through some old files the other day. It was used in a project we worked on for the Preservation Trust, for their book on the history of Barton Farm. Very interesting to see places you know from above and it does show what a beautiful area we have the pleasure to work in

Alive and Kicking!

serenarts gallery open

We got a bit of a shock yesterday when Jackie phoned to ask if SerenArts had permanently closed! NO! Fake news!

We’re not sure what happened but Google had our gallery listed as permanently closed. We would like to point out that this is absolutely not the case and we are very much looking forward to being able to reopen our lovely gallery in just 39 sleeps. We have already contacted Google to get this error corrected and hope to see you all on Monday 12th April (as long as Boris doesn’t change his mind!).

Just as a little reminder… we are currently able to offer our printing and photocopying services as it is considered an essential service, so please feel free to contact us at any time with your requirements.

Printing and Photocopying Service

Happy New Year

happy 2021 from serenarts gallery

Well… 2020 was certainly a bumpy ride! But we’re still here and ready for the renewed challenges that 2021 will bring. We will hopefully be updating our online shop over the coming weeks as new years stock arrives, so please come back soon to see the new goodies!

We did have a little scare over the festive period when the River decided to get rather full again…

We got away with this one and hope that anyone hit by it this time is now all dried out and safe.

We would like to thank everyone for the tremendous local support they have shown SerenArts and the other units at the Tithebarn Workshops and wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year.

Lockdown 2:0

serenarts gallery lockdown 2

With just over a week to go until the end of ‘Lockdown 2:0’ we thought we would give you a little update on how things are going at SerenArts Gallery.

Like many small businesses, this enforced closure could not have come at a worse time of year, hitting Christmas sales from our gallery very hard.  Although we have transferred the bulk of our shop items into our online shop and made Serena’s artwork available on her website, there is no doubt the coming months will be a challenge.  I made the mistake of calculating the percentage of annual retail sales that we would expect in November… not a good idea!

However… what these lockdowns have done is galvanise local people into looking nearer to home and supporting local firms in these difficult times.  We have noticed a marked increase in ‘Bradfordian’ customers and enquiries, which is great for the local economy (and ours!).  Hopefully, when we reopen after this current closure, people won’t have spent all their pennies with Amazon and we will see a lovely last minute rush for pressies!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our existing and new printing customers for their fantastic support during this period.  We have had a large number of Christmas printing orders and continue to offer our ‘essential’ photocopying service.

Thank you very much and stay safe.

Our work with local artists and businesses will also continue, albeit in a different format. By contacting us using the details above we can still produce your Christmas cards, calendars and other printing projects and arrange for collection / delivery appointments during this very difficult time.

We would like to wish everyone well during the coming weeks and hope you all stay safe and well.
