Gallery News OPEN iso online

I'm excited to let you know that OPEN iso online will be available for you to view from 9am tomorrow morning via the galleries website: please click on the link below (not live until 9am)
The exhibition is a diverse show of over 130 pieces of work by 77 artists from across the UK: many thanks to all of the exhibiting artists for making the show possible!

You can view a short preview video of some of the work within the exhibition via youtube:

Over the course of the exhibition the pieces of work will be posted and shared via our social media platforms: Instagram and Facebook - where you'll be able to vote for the 'Peoples Prize Winner'. You can find us on Instagram @theoldlockupgallery and on Facebook by searching for The Old Lock Up Gallery.

All of the prizewinners will be announced throughout the exhibition online and in our next newsletter before the show ends, the peoples prize winner will be announced on the last day of the exhibition by combining the votes, for each individual piece of work, on instagram and Facebook.

I'm currently busy redecorating the gallery and I'm aiming for it to be finished by 4th June! I'm also still ever hopeful that I'll be able to share our current show with you next month and OFF THE PRESS will be installed and waiting.

Until then you can view the work within the exhibition via our website here:

An update on the Secret Postcard Show for this year - which will definitely go ahead and I expect that the gallery will be open for July onwards. However I will need to put some social distancing measures in place.
I will be able to host the opening night as in previous shows: however it will most probably need be via live stream on instagram and Facebook - as I can't accommodate social distancing for such large numbers of people. I'll keep you all posted with news about re-opening and social distancing at the gallery.

We're open for entires from the 17th July! And further information is available here:
