Of course looking to the future will be an odd thing for us all. What will life be like, how will we engage with art in public spaces and how will we go about ordering our picture frames?
We have spent the past few weeks considering this and hopefully have provided some answers. Ottersburn Gallery will be very much open for business when we are all allowed out to play again, but of course many of our methods will have to change. We hope that the development of this website will help to manage these changes.
Ottersburn Gallery goes online
We have worked hard to create an online version of the gallery and picture framing service and we hope to create ‘virtually’ the same experience as is familiar to you when visiting the gallery in person.
Furthermore we continue to represent artists from across Dumfries and Galloway and you will see here Artist’s profiles and images of their work and have an opportunity to purchase their work from the our online gallery shop. We will continue to host exhibitions, but in the virtual world.
You can now order picture framing online
We have a selection of our wider range now available online along with a choice of mounts and glazing and we are always available to discuss specific needs with you. To help facilitate this we are offering an appointments arrangement. This will help control the flow of visitors and avoid disappointment if we are already engaged with another customer. You can make your appointment here or contact Sean here by email or phone.
Ask us about delivery and collection
We are offering a delivery service. This takes different forms designed to meet the specific requirements of the purchased items, many of which of course are fragile. We will be open again for you to visit the gallery as Lockdown eases further but appointments can be made now and we will accommodate you on a one to one basis.
I hope you will enjoy visiting our website and our online exhibitions and purchasing art. I hope too that you find it accommodates your needs while being presented with the needs of Social Distancing. But remember, Sean is always available to speak with, by telephone or email.
