14 days to go…

We are very excited and working feverishly towards the Bath & West in just 2 weeks! Serena and Steve have been painting up a storm and most of their work is now at the framers… nothing like cutting it fine!

The promotional stationary and posters have been printed and are ready and we can’t wait to get going…

We will be setting up in the Exmoor Hall at the show ground in Shepton Mallet on the Wednesday and then open from 9am to 6pm on the Thursday 2nd, Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th June.

We’re all looking forward to a busy jubilee long weekend.

Green Man Festival

Well it was all happening down at Barton Farm this morning…

An early start to wake up Jack and then everyone headed off down into town for more fun and festivities at the Green Man Festival. Why not pop in and visit Jackie and Karen’s stall in Westbury Gardens? There will be more going on around the Tithebarn Workshops this afternoon with dancing and music.

Themed Hanging Baskets

It’s that time of year again and we thought this year we would theme our hanging baskets at SerenArts Gallery

We’ve gone for the red, white and blue basket for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June and the blue and yellow for Ukraine.

It’s all looking lovely down at the Tithebarn Workshops with the Cloth Road Arts Week starting today and most of the units here taking part this year.

Why not pop down for a browse around the workshops and enjoy some of the wonderful artwork created for this weeks festivities…

Above are the various artists taking part this week, offering a diverse selection of work across a broad range of media. Just look out for the bright door signs and enjoy the artwork…

 A Serene View of poetry features a collection of original paintings in a range of different media by local artist Serena, along with a selection of her complementary poems and haiku.

You can pick up a copy at the gallery or order online from this website.

Website Expansion

We have actually started one of our New Years projects a little early and have begun to add all our printing and design services to the main SerenArts Gallery website / blog…

So whether it is a book printing job or simply a photocopy you are looking for, you will be able to find it all in one place.

Please come back again soon to see what has been added.

Cloth Road Arts Week 2022

serenarts gallery in cloth road arts week 2022

Here’s a date to pop in your diary… 30th April – 8th May 2022.

SerenArts Gallery are very pleased to announce that we will be taking part in next years Cloth Road Arts Week. It’s a good few years since we last took part so we have joined forces with the other units at the Tithebarn Workshops to create a proper destination for art lovers.

We will bring you more information once we have plans in place!

Dog Sitting!

This is Bailey!

The idea was that our son and his fiancé went away on their holidays for a week while we baby sit our furry grandchild!! We thought (rather naively) that we would have Bailey in the gallery with us during the day… what could go wrong?… he’s adorable! He’ll be a great selling gimmick, we thought!

Well, that plan lasted all of an hour before there had to be a rapid change of plan and Serena would paint at home with her ‘little helper’! Cute as he is, at 8 months old he was just a tad too boisterous for our little gallery space. Much happier at home…

Things will be back to normal next week as Bailey heads back home. We will certainly miss the wee man!

OK… I’m going to own up… I took the mickey out of Serena for offering free keyrings promoting the gallery to gain followers on her Instagram account. I said she was buying friends! Now I feel guilty and want to help, so thought I would promote her wonderful work on our blog as well!

So, if you wouldn’t mind following serenapughartist on instagram it will hopefully get me off the hook!

Thank you very much.

Busy Morning at SerenArts Gallery

On my morning walk today I saw a mother swan and her six signets grazing on the grass behind the Tithebarn Workshops, so I quickly phoned Serena to go and have a look. The next thing I know I get a rather panicked phone call from her saying they were following her back into the garden of the Workshops! I think word might have got around in the bird world that Serena feeds them every morning!

We now have the family all fed and watered and fast asleep outside the gallery! So please try and keep the noise down if you’re coming the Tithebarn Workshops today!! We don’t want to wake the kids!
