Exhibition : JQ Open Studios

Once again we sold art which will be hanging in homes as far a field as Australia.
For 2017 we had already set our sites outside of the Jewellery Quarter, with us already being established having a following, we were confident of our next exhibition being a sucess and we were not dissapointed. We had the opportunity to turn a fantastic venue JYG Hair & Beauty into an art gallery for the evening. The collection featured Dee Manning's entire catalogue of art The Bob Marley Fire piece took centre stage with it being a favourite with buyers.
So after a whirlwind of a year we held our final exhibiton of 2016. Despite the cold weather we had a good turn out with the 'Miniature' paintings being a hot pick. For us it really was a great end to the year with our eyes set on our next exhibition in a larger space in a different part of the city.

Exhibition : Summer Open Gallery
April - May 2016
We had a two weekend exhibition in both April and May showcasing new pieces by Birmingham artist Dee Manning. This was good preparation for larger crowds, as we were planning to be part of the JQ Festival later in the summer. We saw a great turn out from local personalities such as world champion kickboxer Kash Gill, Amreen Akhtar from Britains Next Top Model contestant and Ranking Roger of The Beat.
We had not long moved into our studio when we invited people to give their opinion on Dee Manning's first pieces of artwork. A mixture was on display such as the first five pieces from the 'Reflections On The Pebbles' collection and portaits of iconic musicians such as Bob Marley and Tupac Shakur.
