High Five

Exhibition at The Whittox Gallery

update: exhibition at The Whittox postponed, but we’ll host a virtual exhibition until we can open to the public.


Mount and The Whittox Gallery have made the decision to postpone our planned High Five exhibition events. We’re planning to experiment with a virtual exhibition instead, with a possibility of a physical exhibition in May-June. Keep an eye out here for updates and links to our social media.

Mount is using the coronavirus downtime as an opportunity to experiment with an alternative exhibition format, get on top of neglected tasks, and take a break. We’re open by appointment throughout this period, and are happy to continue providing frame and print consultations. The best way to book an appointment is via email: info@mount-art.co.uk or print@mount-art.co.uk for printing orders.

We’re excited to be collaborating on a group exhibition in celebration of our 5th birthday and the re-opening of The Whittox Gallery in Frome.

The theme that underpins this exhibition is “striving”: Mount, The Whittox, and the 5 artists we are showcasing are all striving to work to the highest level we can whilst still accepting there is further to climb.

Amanda Bee Gary Cook, Jamie Gallagher, Dan Morley, and Miriam Sheppard have been selected on the basis of their development over the past five years.  

The work on show is new and not previously exhibited. Gary Cook is an environmental painter specialising in trees and landscapes that explore the plight of the environmental crisis and its effect on his subjects. Jamie Gallagher returns to The Whittox Gallery with a new collection of contemporary figurative abstracts, and Miriam Sheppard is pushing the boundaries of her evocative land and cloudscape works. Amanda Bee has been working on a series of bold new paintings, and Dan Morley has spent the winter working on a brand new body of work that will have its first airing at High Five.

The Whittox Gallery has been making improvements to the space, including installing a new top-of-the-range lighting system. The re-opening will mark the start of a new programme of exhibitions and events.

Two special events coincide with the Frome Independent Market where a selection of small works alongside the main show will be available to view and purchase: April 5th and May 3rd 10am-3pm.

The exhibition runs from April 4th- May 17th. Preview evening April 3rd 6-8pm.

We’ll post more details about events going on throughout the exhibition run soon.
