The dialogue around our Buy The Kilo shop and gallery is environmental issues. Whether it is climate change, pollution, industry, health, food customers engage their thoughts while shopping. In our Gallery we exhibit a visual presence to inspire more conversations.

As a plastic activist through my art and the shop, I am very passionate about the subject and try and get as much information out through conversation to encourage our audience to engage and partake.

Since launching in 2019, we have shown several artists work in our space. Each artist has a keen interest in the environment and the problems that single-use plastic can cause. Artists include Jackie Sewell, co-founder, Ali Elly, Alice Bradshaw, Nerissa Cargill Thompson, Tim Pugh and Di McGhee. In 2021 our programme of artists, highlighted the issues of plastic and the detrimental effect it has had in our seas and rivers.

We are now looking for artists who are working on what is happening on the land and the environment where they live. It can be photography, paint, sculpture, written word, textiles. Sadly, we have no facilities for video, audio or light submissions.

The chosen Artists will exhibit for a month, with the opportunity to sell, paying 30% commission to the shop. The artist is responsible for getting their work to and from the shop when it is their time to exhibit. They can post it and I will hang as instructed.  They can exhibit two pieces of work no larger than 120cm square or several smaller pieces to fit into that size. Artists must have their own Artist insurance.
