Valli Opticians in Hebden Bridge are keen to showcase the work of local and regional artists and they've asked if ARTbound would curate the exhibition programme for 2020.

'Vision On Gallery' is the name given to the waiting area within the opticians large shopfront. Situated in the centre of Hebden Bridge. We're inviting artists and photographers to exhibit seasonally with us in this wonderfully lit space.

The exhibition fee is £120 for a 3 month exhibition (£10 per week). We only have 4 annual slot so these spaces get booked up rather quickly!

What's included:

  • one full wall to exhibit 8 - 10 pieces of wall-hangable (or framed) art or photography
  • 2 glass cabinets to display accompanying greeting cards and products
  • an invite to any events that Valli Opticians host, including fashion shows or pop-up shops
  • regular marketing and promotion throughout

Exhibitions will run for 3 months (12 weeks)

Valli Opticians is open 6 days a week, 9am - 5.30pm (closed on Sundays)

Sales commission is 25% taken by Valli Opticians.
