Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood continue to hold valuation mornings every Thursday (10:00am-1:00pm) at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery, Dowell Street, Honiton and are currently sponsoring the current 'Drop Me A Line Part I' exhibition until the 16th May 2015. Our good friends at the gallery are now in the running for an opportunity to continue their successful winning run this year with a unique opportunity that everyone can spend some time getting involved with!
Artist Luke Jerram has selected Thelma Hulbert Gallery as one of the top five museums/galleries in the United Kingdom to work with for the Museums At Night event in October.
It’s now down to a public vote!
His plan is to install over a thousand clocks throughout the gallery and garden. Donated by visitors, local businesses, community groups, school children and families, these timepieces will transform the space visually and aurally, reviving the familial environment of the gallery's 200 year old building.
Nick Stockman, Culture24Campaigns Manager said: “This year the Connect! competition is more exciting than ever with voting taking place during the May Museums at Night festival and the artist-led events in October. All of the competing venues have wonderfully creative ideas for what they’d like their chosen artist to do if they win. Now every venue will be trying their hardest to get people to vote for them: we’d like to wish all the museums, galleries and heritage sites the best of luck!”
