A collection of abstract landscape artwork will be showcased in Shrewsbury by a local artist network. The Borderland Visual Arts (BVA) network will hold a group show during May at the Gateway Gallery on Chester Street from 5th May – 2nd June 2023.

Gateway Gallery Chair Emma Sherry said, "We are very excited to host such a high quality body of works from the BVA Artists. The theme is ‘Abstract Landscapes’ which will be a mix of paintings, ceramics and sculptures. The final artwork has been through a thorough selection process by the Gallery Panel who oversee and curate our exhibitions."

Borderland Visual Arts is a network of artists from Oswestry and the surrounding borderlands. The BVA holds regular exhibitions and open studio events throughout the year – this year, BVA artists are opening their studios for an Arts Trail in and around Oswestry over two weekends in June.

Alison Holt, one of the exhibiting artists, added, "The BVA are really excited to be showcasing our work in such a beautiful, purpose-built, exhibition space in the heart of Shrewsbury. We are very lucky to have such a varied network of artists all producing artwork of a very high standard”

“The Gateway Gallery is a fantastic space for artists to exhibit their work," Emma adds. "It is a purpose-built gallery with the aim of supporting local artists. The team running the gallery are all volunteers and we are looking forward to holding some very special, creative, community events in Shrewsbury next year so watch this space!”

The Gateway Gallery is known for showcasing contemporary works and gives artists a great opportunity to promote their art in a central location. The gallery is located with the Gateway Centre which is completely accessible and has a café overlooking the River Severn. The Gallery is open weekdays, 9am-4pm.

There will be a private viewing on Thursday 4th May, where there will be an opportunity to meet the artists, RSVP by email to borderlandvisualarts@mail.com
