Pitt Studio Worcester
The PITT is an independent, non-profit, artist-run project space
for the development of contemporary visual arts in Worcestershire
and beyond. The space can be an exhibition, workshop or
experimental space open to ideas that develop art and culture
through social or dialectical practice, activism, consultation,
exhibitions, talks and events.
Located on the first floor of the library. A large airy room,
with plenty of natural light from the windows on the external
curved wall. Ideal for large exhibitions or if required the
freestanding boards can be moved to create smaller more intimate
display areas. There are 1 floor standing and 1 wall mounted,
lockable glass display cabinets.
Tenbury Wells Library
The exhibition room is hired on a monthly basis – artists have a
calendar month to put up, exhibit and take down their exhibition.
There are months this year (2010) that are available for hire. The
room is on the first floor of the library and is accessible via the
stairs or by a lift which is suitable for wheelchair users. The
room is also used for meetings, so there are times during the month
when the exhibition is not available to visitors, The display case
is not permanent, but can be obtained for exhibitions if
The Gallery is fairly small. It is in the meeting room at Upton
Library and so is seen by many groups as well as the public.
Exhibitions are held for a month at a time as we are a part-time
library. There is good lighting.
Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum
Housed in a beautiful Victorian building in the heart of
Worcester, the City Art Gallery and Museum runs a lively programme
of exhibitions, activities and events for all the family. Relax in
the airy surroundings of the balcony cafe or visit the gallery shop
which has a superb selection of cards, books and gifts.
