Southport Contemporary Arts will be welcoming in the New Year with its much-anticipated Under the Bed Sale at the ArtHouse in Eastbank Street from Tuesday 8th – Saturday 25th January.

This annual art lover’s sale offers the avid art collector wanting to boost their own collection and the savvy bargain hunter resurfacing after the Boxing Day sales, the opportunity to buy high quality art and craft ranging from hand-thrown ceramics and original paintings to decorative embroideries and intricate jewellery, all offered at much reduced prices for the duration of the exhibition.

Norrie Beswick-Calvert, co-Director of SCA, reports “Our exhibiting artists never charge the full worth of the beautifulyl handcrafted and unique pieces that they make, so it always seems a shame to then reduce them for The Under the Bed Sale. Because they are always busy creating new work and coming up with new and exciting ideas, they just simply run out of storage space! The Under the Bed Sale gives everyone a chance to bag even more of a bargain than usual by shopping with us during the exhibition and supporting their local independent Gallery and local artists and makers.”

The Southport Contemporary Arts community began in 2009 with the aim to recognise, promote and support the many talented artists active in Southport who were striving for the same goals and ambitions. The current list of creative skills represented by the members of SCA now includes painters, textile artists, filmmakers, photographers, printmakers, sculptors, jewellers, musicians, poets and performance-based artists. SCA provides the opportunity for creatives from all backgrounds and disciplines to be recognised and appreciated.

If you’re looking for affordable art don’t hesitate – these are all one-offs and once they’re gone – they’re gone.



The UNDER THE BED SALE (8th – 25th January) is at SCA/ArtHouse, 65 Eastbank Street, Tues thro Fri 10.00 – 15.00 and Sat 11.00 – 16.00.
