The First Raffle Winner Draw at the Preview on 30th April 2018

The winner of the April painting raffle was Bernard Young. Videos of the draw are below. The next raffle draw will take place on Monday 4th June. Please call in to the gallery to see the new choices of 6 paintings and to buy a ticket to support the running costs of the gallery.


Please Support the Gallery’s New Fundraising Initiative

The gallery pays rent for the space to Harold Gassner. There are also running costs for electricity, water and publicity. The gallery’s income is derived from the sale of artwork, parking charges and the generosity of visitor’s donations. The gallery earns 20% from the sale of visiting artwork.

This year, as an experiment in funding the materials for production of the murals and the upkeep of the gallery, we are inviting visitors to buy a £5 raffle ticket for the chance to win one of Bernard Barnes’ paintings as prize. There will be a choice of 6 paintings in the raffle each month on view in the gallery and on the website here. The pictures in the April raffle are shown below. To get a larger view, and scroll through, click on any of the images. Please call in to the gallery to buy tickets.

A draw will take place once a month. At the draw, one ticket, purchased for the month up to that date, will be selected. The winner will receive the painting that they indicated they preferred. The draws will take place at the preview evenings on the following dates in 2018:

Monday 30th April

Monday 4th June

Monday 2nd July

Monday 6th August

Monday 2nd September
