A TEMPORARY pop-up gallery is being set up in Burton and budding artists sought to be a part of it.

Moderna Art revealed that it was opening a site in High Street and was looking for people in the area who would like to run the site and also those who would like to display their work to art lovers in the town.

The group was drawn to the area after reading of the successful PINT arts festival last year, which saw dozens of events take place across the town and included a variety of different displays and works.

A spokesman for Moderna Art said: “Moderna Art is a new and exciting art gallery business operating at a number of venues throughout the UK.

“The company supports and showcases both new and established contemporary artists and photographers.

We are delighted to announce the launch of 34 pop-up shops featuring collections from both our affiliated artists together with work produced by local artists.

“Not only are we bringing some life back to the high street but are also supporting the local artists community.

“We’re setting up one of these temporary pop-up art gallery in Burton and as we’re advertising for a local artist to run the shop for us.

“We are talking to a couple of potential artists and once we get someone we will let everyone know in the area.

“The aim of the project is to bring some temporary life back to the high street and to assist local artists in promoting their work.”

The Mail understands that the group could be set to name the person who will run the gallery in the next few weeks.

Bosses also asked artists of all types in the area to get in touch as they could be in a chance with showcasing work at the gallery when it opens its doors.
