A trio of exhibitions are currently on offer for art lovers wanting to discover the work of local artists. Organised by Arrested Re-Development and the Independent Creative Arts Network (ICAN), the exhibitions aim to provide a space for artists to show their work.

It’s A Gallery on Talbot road has seen a formal bridal shop transformed into a jam packed showcase of over one hundred works produced by artists from Blackpool and the Fylde coast. Featuring everything from urban to digital, classical and contemporary, the space offers a plethora of artwork to suit all tastes.

Just around the corner on Clifton Street, Shaw’s Cafe is playing host to Richard Jon’s documentary photographic exhibition which runs until Thursday 22 February and will be followed by new exhibitions on a rolling basis. As well as offering a chance to see artwork, Shaw’s is also staking out a reputation as one of the best independent coffee shops in town.

Finally, Blackpool Grand Theatre’s Matchams Bar is once again hosting a solo exhibition, this time by pop artist John Marc Allen. The Grand has often shown its support to Blackpool based artists in the past having hosted exhibitions by Robin Ross, Dawn Mander and Kate Yates over the years.

Kate Yates, one of the organisers of It’s A Gallery, said: “It’s a fascinating collection of works from local independent artistsย and gives an eyeopening glimpse into the homegrown talent we have here on the Fylde Coast.

“For some of the artists this is the very first time they have shown their work and we’re delighted to have secured the It’s A Gallery space until at least Easter.”

Artworks in all three of the spaces are also available for sale. For more information about It’s A Gallery visit their Facebook page or for more information about ICAN visit their Facebook page.
