Bzzz Gallery is a month long project taking place right in the centre of Blackburn. Set up by Julia Swarbrick of swarbiearts its a chance for local artists to showcase some of their work for free and help liven up the high street. Bzzz is not just a gallery but a workshop space and there will be a chance to try your hand at painting, drawing and printmaking or just pop in and have chat. Lookout for forthcoming workshops. There will be two evening openings, which should prove liveley and work on the walls will change later in the month.
What a fantastic month. Bzzz gallery has been a great success for showcasing the work of local Artists, giving the public an opportunity to see, buy and commission locally manufactured Art-works including painting, sculpture, etchings, prints and furniture.
Bzzz proved to be somewhat of a catalyst for several ‘on-going’ projects and I’m looking forward to their developing and growing.
I’ve posted some pictures which apparently speak louder than words… thanks to all those people who helped make Bzzz happen.
