If the cost (and indeed the thought) of advertising your exhibition is overwhelming . . .
Barrington Publications can help with proven successful and highly regarded printing, advertising and distribution packages.

Designed with art fairs, open studios and group shows in mind, these cost
effective packages allow you a national advertising presence in Galleries magazine,
an original and contemporary design for an event catalogue or brochure with unique targeted distribution.

Listed here are the basic packages but a combination can be designed to suit particular needs.

This service allows access to a unique distribution network that can be used to place catalogues and other material in front of a local and and regional audience competitively and attractively.




 - Bath Galleries Group
A successful open gallery/studio in Bath

The success of the Bath Galleries Group catalogue and distribution in November 2010, 2011 and 2012 is evidential that Barrington Publications can fit a design brief with a budget and publicity aspirations.

BGG said “The event was a great success thank you. We received a high foot fall of
both local and national visitors, with many people travelling from London for the
weekend. Sales were also good for a number of the galleries and those who were
not so involved this year have been converted”.

 - National Open Art Competition
A vibrant and growing national competition and exhibition based in Chichester's Minerva Theatre with established and emerging artists taking part and a winners' show at the Pallant House Gallery in 2011/12, The Prince's Foundation Gallery 2012 and The Watercolours and Works on Paper Fair 2011/12. Publicity and marketing is obviously a key element for the organisers. Barrington Publications together with the team from NOAC designed a package which included advertising in Galleries magazine, a client led, designed promotional brochure and an accompanying Exhibiton Catalogue.

"The Barringtons input to 2011 was superb . . . the main catalogue was a triumph.
It was/is much admired by many and will help me with my 2012 marketing".
Neil Lawson Baker CEO, NOAC.

The team from Barrington Publications went on to produce the catalogues for the 2012/13/14/15/16/17 events.

 - Landmark Arts Centre
