The old art gallery was extended as part of the 2014/5 refurbs and radically improved with new lighting and display systems on three large hanging surfaces in the Eileen Whelan Room. In exceptional circumstances two further large display surfaces in the Reception area can also be used.
Fellowship’s aim is to provide local artists with a free display facility for the enjoyment and interest of its members and Suburb residents. No charge is made for displaying artwork neither is commission taken on sales. Assistance can be given with hanging and with local publicity. Exhibitions usually last for at least a month. Insurance is the responsibility of exhibitors.
Guaranteed opening times are set for each exhibition. In addition the Art Gallery will be open whenever the building is open and the Eileen Whelan Room is not being used for other purposes.
The current exhibition of watercolours reveal the hidden talents of a quiet man, John Mathias who after a career as an anaesthetist, became a leading light at the Horticultural Society and Chair of Fellowship from 2015 to 2020. He died early this year. The show will run until mid November and will be open to residents on Tuesday and Friday afternoons between 2 and 4pm and also at any other time the building is open and the Eileen Whelan Room unoccupied.
