20th Upfront Artists Open Exhibition

Artist Collection Up-Date

As of Wednesday 18th March Upfront Gallery closed following the government guidelines, to try and keep us all safe and slow down this dreadful virus.

The Upfront Open Exhibition will remain on the walls until we are able to re-open.  If any artists would still prefer to collect their work, please let us know and we will make this possible.

All artist payments will be made over the next two weeks, if not sooner.

Best wishes, good luck and good health to everyone.  We look forward to seeing you when we are through this and out the other side.


28th January – 22nd March
