Short Notice City Centre Gallery Space Opportunity!!!

 A fantastic last minute opportunity has been secured  

Great pre Christmas sales exposure

As many of you know we are always on the look out for opportunities to provide artists with places and events to display, present and sell their work. The Pop Up Gallery Initiative, The Courtyards Arts, The Riverside Arts and the new Archiimp Christmas Arts are going strong and delivering space that artists have been asking for.

Through continued support and generosity of a few key partners namely, The Hopmarket Charity, The City Council and Fisher German, we have managed to secure a last minute addition to the event calendar of 2018 for local artists.

In the run up to the Hopmarket Fringe on Saturday 1st December Archiimp will be curating a Pop Up Gallery in 16 Foregate from the morning of Saturday 24th November to the end of the Hopmarket Fringe on the evening of Saturday 1st December

Gallery and sales space for 8 days!

Open to the public from 10am till 5pm!!

Archiimp will be present throughout the event, so no staffing required. Artists do not need to be present, unless they wish to and we will take payments and proactively promote participating artists. Jilly Oxlade-Arnott will be using this as a base to paint in-situ. 

We are calling for local artists who wish to take advantage of this event and to submit items for the pop up gallery.

We are not just looking for paintings or wall hanging items but other artisan items too, such as cards, jewellery, glassware, pottery, textiles etc. 

You will need to provide your own display furniture and all items must be clearly priced or obvious. Space is not limited and is agreed on a case by case basis  – first come first served.  There is no artist participating fees but we ask for 20% commission on all items sold.

Process to participate:

  • Call or email Chris with your interest and an idea as to what you wish to provide to secure your space allocation. Mobile: 07713 055 999 or email
  • Chris will explain more about the event, the how, whats, wheres, whens etc
  • Complete the ‘Guest Artist Stock Report’ (provides details on items delivered, quantity provided, special descriptions and unit price).
  • Set up/delivery of product Friday 23rd November and collection Monday 2nd December – we can be flexible.

This is a prelude to the Hopmarket Arts due to start in the spring of 2019 and is designed to increase awareness and footfall of visitors to the Hopmarket and the surrounding area. 

This event is only made possible by the continued support by:
