New pop-up gallery to open in Chichester

A brand-new pop-up gallery is set to open in a vacant shop in the city centre.

The former site of Comics Games and Coffee in North Street will be transformed into gallery in the coming weeks.

A sign has appeared in the shop’s window announcing the arrival of Artisans Gallery.

It says that a pop-up gallery and gift shop will open from August to December this year and has called for local painters, printmakers, glass artists, jewellers, silversmiths, textile artists, ceramicists and potters to come forward and show off their works and wares.

The pop-up shop will run from August to December

There are 20 spaces available to rent including shelves, walls spaces and a cabinet.

The shop will be taking a five per cent commission on sales and also requires a one-day-per-week staffing commitment.

Comics Games and Coffee, also known as CGC Emporium, moved from the corner of Guildhall Street to the former site of Coln Gallery, also on North Street, in January 2020.
