Up and coming events

Tonality Photos – Images by Kim Ian Bell

In 1989, Kim worked for a commercial and industrial photographer and went to college in London to gain his professional  photography qualifications. As Kim says himself – “it all started when I was a small child; my father would sit me on a stool in his darkroom and I would watch excitedly as an image slowly appeared on a blank piece of paper – I thought this was magic. Now in the autumn years of my life, I am enjoying making images for myself, mostly monochrome and digital infrared as you see in this exhibition.  I still have my film camara and darkroom equipment and hope to exhibit some film photography and hand-made prints in the future.”

We are delighted to be exhibiting this evocative work by Kim.

Twilight – A New Exhibition by Sandy Miles

Sandy Miles is an art photographer living and working in Suffolk. Awarded a distinction grade for a Level e Diploma in Art and Design with UAL, she then went on to graduate with a first-class BA (Hons) in Photography from the University of Suffolk in 2021.

Working predominantly with analogue photographic mediums, Sandy looks to focus on the interaction of light and shade, whilst also exploring the fascinating relationship between the photographer, the photographed, and the spectator.

Twilight is a beautiful collection of images reflecting the reawakening of shops and businesses post-covid.

Art Around Town

Art Around Town is a public art installation running alongside the Moyses Hall ‘Moments’ exhibition and aiming to inspire people to get out and explore their surroundings. Hundreds of pizza boxes have been given away to local artists who were encouraged to ‘Think outside the box’ and create a piece of work based on the theme ‘What makes Bury Tick?’

These pizza boxes artworks have been installed all over the town, everywhere from the aviary in the Abbey Gardens to shop windows. Guildhall Studio has the fantastic work of 30 different local artists on display in the gallery. The installation will be available to view from 1st July until the end of summer.

Exhibition at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge

We are very pleased to have been offered the chance to mount an exhibition of photographs at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge as part of the overall Arts Project at the hospital. The exhibition will run for 12 months through to June 2022, with the exhibited work being changed on a regular basis. The proceeds of any sales will be shared with Addenbrookes.

Hidden Gardens of Bury

We are taking part in the “Hidden Gardens of Bury” open day on 11th July 2021. We have created a small but vibrant town garden outside the back of the studio, that customers can wander through to and enjoy some calm away from the bustle of town.
