The Grundy art gallery

On a wet and windy wild day in blackpool why not enjoy the peace and tranquility of the grundy art gallery.

The Grundy Art Gallery is a stunning Grade II listed art venue that is situated in the centre of Blackpool. The beautiful Edwardian architecture hosts an extensive programme of temporary exhibitions including historical, modern and contemporary art, featuring established and emerging artists from the UK and abroad.

Exhibitions featuring artworks from the gallery's permanent collection are organised periodically throughout the year.

Thanks for posting, Louise. It is always nice to look at couple of architect things at places like Blackpool.

Unfortunately it seems that only the large populations to be found in major cities provide sufficient numbers of people (footfall) to keep an Art Gallery thriving.

The more encouragement we can give people to visit The Grundy, and even more importantly, Bllott Artists' Studio on King Street behind The Syndicate, and the Gallery which forms part of FYC (FYCreatives) on Church Street, opposite The Blue Room & St. John's Junior School - the two last mentioned displaying work chiefly by locally-based artists and youngsters who aspire to be artists (but not of the Pop Idol or Britain's Got Talent varieties).

Finding kindred spirots is always encouraging.
