Artists from Warwickshire are being invited to sell their works at the newly redeveloped Market Hall Museum in Warwick.

When the museum in Warwick town centre re-opens in January, following its Heritage Lottery funded £1.1 million redevelopment, its shop will be at its entrance, next to a new cafe. As well as displaying works by local artists, Heritage and Culture Warwickshire - which manages the museum - is hoping to host ‘meet the artist’ events, private views and other opportunities for artists to engage with the public.

Visitor services supervisor Victoria Goodall said: “This is an exciting opportunity for local artists and makers to sell art, craft and design works in the heart of Warwickshire. We’re now seeking expressions of interest from Warwickshire-based artists or works based on Warwickshire’s fascinating heritage and landscape.”

The museum’s redevelopment includes internal building refurbishment, new exhibition cases and display and family-friendly interactives and activities. Heritage and Culture Warwickshire is hoping that the new shop will create a high quality and unique shopping experience for visitors.
