Welcome to the Wayland Dragonfly Gallery
The first Patron of the Dragonfly Gallery was Peggy Spencer MBE, a wonderful, dedicated supporter very greatly missed by all of us here.
The Gallery is currently also supported by patron Sue Welfare, bestselling writer and artist from Downham Market. Sue is a self-taught artist and printmaker living and working in West Norfolk: 'inspired by the Norfolk coast and country, gardens, birds and the rich colour and chaos of domestic life'.
Our 2020 exhibition programme
Like all creative spaces, the Dragonfly Gallery has been temporarily closed during the difficult times we are all facing due to the current Covid-19 epidemic. With this closure brings the postponement of all planned exhibitions and events at the gallery for 2020. In light of this, the gallery is proposing an online exhibition during the month of May, to all artists and craftspeople who might be interested, with the theme of Art in Isolation.
This would work much the same way as a normal exhibition, with a submission form and the gallery taking 20% commission of any work sold, with the exception that there would be no hanging fees and the exhibition would be entirely online using our website and social media platforms.
Artists have just over four weeks to make and photograph / scan work to be submitted, including a completed application form, by Monday 27th April. We would encourage work in all forms: from painting, sculpture and drawing to photography, installation or mixed media. Work could be the result of creativity as part of your daily routine of passing the time whilst at home, or can more specifically be a comment on these times we find ourselves in.
Please send good quality, well-lit images, preferably with a white background, along with completed application forms to Gallery Coordinator Ruth Stanley: firstname.lastname@example.org
