“For as long as I can remember I’ve enjoyed visiting local galleries … and am full of admiration for the creativity, skill and individuality of artists and makers.  Through volunteering at a local art gallery it has been my fortune to see a great variety of work and to meet those who created it. ….   In recent years, social media and the Internet have made it possible for artists and makers to reach audiences in different ways …

… this has inspired me to create Spring Up Gallery, to bring the essence of a small friendly local exhibition space into the virtual world. The website provides a space for artists and makers to exhibit and brings the visitor a curated selection of work to browse at their leisure. I will hold regular virtual exhibitions of work by artists and makers whose work I have got to know and appreciate, most of whom are from the Chiltern area and surrounds. I hope you enjoy the virtual exhibitions…” – Sarah Osborne, Springup Gallery.

“Welcome and we appreciate that you are visiting  the ArtisTTable’s 39th online exhibition, Art in the Time of Corona. It’s been a crazy ride the last many months. 2020 showed us a lot of new things. Many of which we never thought possible let alone anything we could imagine in our own lifetimes. Our theme for this show has tried to address some of these challenges if you will.” – ArtisTTable.

“When we began in 2012 our vision was to create a place for artists to share their work. To provide artists a professionally curated online space would be a value-added experience for both artists that have an established online presence as well as for those that are newer to showing their art.
Exhibitions are generally themed to give artists something to work towards. Juror’s are selected to curate the individual shows to insure that the work is of the highest standards. The juried process is one that has always be one that gives greater prestige to the art that is included in the show and those that are awarded special recognition.
Over the years, it has been our great pleasure to have presented well over 30 of these exhibitions.” – ArtisTTable Online Exhibitions.
