Under The Bed Sale

Cupola Gallery’s famous Under The Bed Sale returns from 15 January to 5 February to the delight of its many fans.

A long-standing home of fine art and craft, Cupola opened in 1991 and has deservedly become one of the most respected contemporary galleries in the North of England. With gallery director Karen Sherwood at the helm, the space plays host to the work of more than 300 artists, showcasing a dazzling array of disciplines.

The month of January is always a special time for Cupola because every year, artists and art lovers unite for Cupola’s Under The Bed Sale, a concept which gives artists the opportunity to bring out artworks that they will no longer exhibit and sell them off at bargain prices.

Prices start at under £1 and are capped at £350, so buyers have the chance to snap up original artworks for a snip. You’ll find everything from painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, glass, ceramics and textiles to jewellery, drawings, collage, cards, digital artwork and objects that defy description.

“The Under The Bed Sale is without question the most eagerly awaited event in Cupola’s exhibition calendar," Gallery director Karen Sherwood told us. “Artwork for the sale is totally unselected and open to all. The sale is open to amateurs and professionals across all media. The youngest contributor we’ve had to date was 8 years old and the eldest, we know of, was 97 years.

“The sale is only on for three weeks and when it’s gone, it’s gone. So come and enjoy a good old rummage and see if you can find a bargain priced treasure!”

Doors to the Under The Bed Sale open at 10am on Saturday 15 January 2022.
