A new pop-up gallery in High Street in Maidenhead opened for the first time yesterday.
124 Studios has opened next to the Bear pub and features a selection of work from local artists connected through their affiliation with Bovilles Art Shop and the Art on the Street initiative.
The gallery, which will be at the site for five weeks, is the first pop-up scheme in the town centre to move outside the Nicholsons Centre after Sorbon Estates, part of the Shanly Group, granted permission for the artists to take up their temporary residency at the unit.
The team behind the exhibition space managed to get the shop ready to open in just six hours, and were already attracting a steady steam of curious visitors to the gallery yesterday.
124 Studios will be open from Thursday-Saturday from 10am-4pm and will be at the site until Saturday, July 27.
