The Upstairs Gallery was set up in 2011, supported by a charitable trust and aims to provide a showcase for Chiltern artists at an affordable cost. The gallery is situated in a light, welcoming space above the Post Office in central Berkhamsted. Throughout the year the gallery has themed open submission exhibitions, solo / partner shows, and exhibits work by local community/education groups.
We make yearly donations to the local charity DENS whose aim is to tackle homelessness and poverty in Dacorum. For more information please visit their website at www.dens.org.uk
The Gallery is a volunteer-run organisation for the benefit of the regional art community. If you have an interest in art, like meeting people or just enjoy the atmosphere within the gallery environment, we would love to hear from you. If you'd like to join our team, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Open Door, five minutes walk down the road from the gallery, is also particularly keen to welcome more volunteers to help with projects. It offers the opportunity to be part of a small, dedicated team of people running an exciting community arts project, providing fun, variety and the opportunity to learn new skills, develop your cv, to be part of the arts vibe of the Chilterns and to make new friends.
