Rugby primary school children

14 - 26 May 2022 

We invited Rugby primary school children to contribute brightly coloured paintings and drawings to celebrate the Queen's platinum jubilee.  Over 1000 pictures were submitted and we are displaying all of them in the Floor One Gallery!   From these 1000 pictures, 200 images are being selected to decorate the six foot by four foot rugby ball sculpture in the town centre.

Alistair Bain

28 May - 9 June 2022 

Acrylic paintings and drawings in crayon and pencil.
All  Alistair's original works  were completed in between two to 5 hours.
There is no overall theme to the works - "I just painted what I felt like painting and did a painting or drawing every second day from autumn to winter last year".

Floor One Hire for Individual Artists and Groups

Floor One Gallery was established in September 2001 to provide more exhibiting opportunities for artists within Warwickshire and beyond.  Individual artists and groups of artists can hire the space for two week slots to stage self-organised exhibitions.

The demand for this space is very high and to make Floor One Gallery available on an equal basis to all and any artists that apply we operate a lottery system.  Every six months to a year we release available dates through our artists’ emailing list and the e-newsletter.  Artists are then invited to send in their application by a set date.  Applications are anonymised and then drawn from a hat by an independent adjudicator.  
The current fee for a 2 week hire period is £129.80.  Public liability insurance  is required.
