The Upstairs Art Gallery

The Upstairs Art Gallery

This not-for-profit community art gallery is on Level 1 of Lopdell House and is charged with promoting the arts at a local level.

With up to 12 exhibitions per year, covering a vast range of mediums, artistic skills, ages and community groups, a trip up the stairs is always worthwhile!

Support local artisans by browsing in the shop to find a piece of art or jewellery you can enjoy every day!

Opening Hours

Entry is free

The Mug & Tea Bag Show

On show 16 September to 8 October

A show for all the family!

Mug Show

Kids Group Show - We asked our young budding artists to let their imagination run wild, be sustainable and creative, take an old mug from home or their local Op Shop, and turn it into a masterpiece: Break, paint, add to, take the old, and make it new…

Tea Bag Art

Youth and Adults Group Show - A tea bag is not usually the base of an artwork. We asked the artists to test their skills of detail and control: Paint, draw, or mould a humble tea bag for our new family show. The show opened alongside the Mug Show.

We celebrated with an opening on 16th September with prizes for the younger entrants.

Opening soon
