Press Release from Graham Perryman from Dragonfly Framing (and associated Bicester Art Network)

 Pop Up Gallery 3

Bicester Town Centre is welcoming back lovers of art and culture as the doors opened last Saturday on the Welcome Back Pop-up Art Gallery. The two week temporary exhibition has been made possible through a successful bid for funding by Cherwell District and Bicester Town Council to HM Government’s Welcome Back Fund (supported by the 2014 to 2020 European Regional Development Fund Programme) and is one of a number of exciting initiatives to encourage the revitalisation of Bicester Town Centre.  Bicester Art Network and a number of businesses and volunteers partnered the Council to deliver a colourful and specially curated display of local art, much of which is also available to purchase in the lead up to Christmas.  Graham Perryman – from Bicester Art Network, said “we were thrilled to have the funding for this event, but the biggest issue was finding a suitable venue in the heart of the town. Fortunately, landlords WE Black Ltd came to the rescue and generously offered the former Marks & Spencer’s unit in Sheep Street at no charge.  The space is simply fantastic!”

high sheriffOn Tuesday March 24th 2020, the High Sheriff of Oxfordshire Awards were due to take place where 23 award winners were to meet and have their awards presented . But, due to the current COVID-19 situation and the subsequent social distancing recommendations, this event was cancelled. Instead, certificates were issued via post to all the recipients, which under the circumstances was understandable, but none the less disappointing for all concerned.
Graham from Dragonfly Framing, was lucky enough to be nominated and chosen to receive an award in recognition of the great and valuable services to the community. He was humbled to be amongst great company of volunteers that do so much for their communities and he says "It's truly awesome to be recognised in this way".
