The Rallyist Motor Sport Art Gallery
A Gallery for Motor Sport Inspired Art. Paintings, Sculptures, Photography, Cartoons, and Performing Arts.
We Want To Build......
- Something Totally New To Motor Sport,
- An Area designed for Exhibiting Motor Sport Art
- Offering the Public an Art Gallery Experience
- A Gallery,
- A Theatre,
- Static Display Arena,
- And a Shop,
- It's Flexible,
- It's Mobile,
- And It's Right Where It Need To Be.........
BTCC, DTM, Masters Classics, GT, World Rally Championships, F1, IOM TT, Le Mans 24hrs, European NASCAR, World Rally Cross, European Drag Racing, and many more.
The Rallyist Motor Sport Art Gallery will exhibit the best in Motor Sport inspired art, in any medium, by Artist's from around the World.
Poster Art, Drawings, Digital Art, Paintings, Sculptures, Crafts, Muti- Media, Photography, and my own favourite Cartooning. We want to attract and display work by both professional and the gifted amateur.
Running themed weekends and events. Constantly upgrading the Display and types of Exhibitions.
The Structure of the Gallery is planned around an Inflatable Cube with 100m² of Floor space. The Shop will have a 36m² with an addition 20m² Sponsors Lounge and a 18 - 20m Forecourt frontage Display area.
Several Events such as the Goodwood Revival and Festival of Speed, F1 Grand Prix weekends, The Oulton Park Gold Cup. The Le Mans 24hrs, The Isle Of Man T.T., European Drag Racing Championship, and Rounds of the World Rally Championship are all take place over several days. Naturally the Gallery can stay open late for the visiting public but Rallyist Publications want to go for something even more special.
We will be able to convert the Gallery into a Theatre for live Performances to present Motor Sport inspired Stage Plays at these major events.
It will be possible to seat 80 Persons in the Theatre.
The Rallyist Motor Sport Art Gallery will have a 20m Frontage at Motor Sport Events. The Gallery it self standing 5m High. Large wall Graphics, Flags and Banners will all announce our presents but there is also scope for more.
Out side the Gallery in the Gallery Forecourt we will have on various displays dependant on the Theme of the weekend. Classics cars, Historic Rally and Racing Cars, Cars from TV and Cinema, Concept Cars, Boats, Aircraft, and even Rockets. Again Themed displays will be assembled such as 1950's pit scenes, and garages, all using life sizes Rallyist Cartoon Characters.
Even in the shop Rallyist wants to take the public in a new direction. Too often Artwork, prints, and merchandise can be found lurking on small table in small marquees. Not as much displayed as stacked. Not easy to sell your cherished work of art in this environment.
( Note a bit of personal frustration here!!!)
The Shop will change the way we will even sell Artwork, Merchandise and related Motorsport wares and with it the way it is displayed. The Difference one could say between a Super market and a High Street boutique.
Building a Team for the Job in Hand. Operations Manager, Site Manager, Marketing Sales and Promotions, Stage Director, Actors, Art department Staff, Drivers, Logistics, Riggers, Sound and Lighting, Catering, HS&E and HR. Some of the many roles we will be looking to create for the Team to support the Gallery, the Theatre, The Forecourt, the Sponsors Lounge, and the Shop, both out at events and at home in the Leyland HQ. We will need experience team members, but we also want to make it our goal to change lives were possible by recruiting for some roles from the young unemployed and ex service personnel, with training opportunities and apprenticeships.
The Grand Plan
You will note that the Project goal is £35,000 this target will lay the foundations of the gallery as a business. Funding a base of operations, recruiting early essential members and expertise into the Team, a studio work shop for gallery preparation and development, and most importantly, building a physical Gallery able to tour limited events, raising more awareness, Investment, and sponsorship.
We will need a few 'gofers' always an important and underrated breed are 'gofers'. Work will start on the necessary task of viewing and meeting potential exhibitors, and finally research into the first stage play production. We have a project in mind and need to explore existing rights, but that as they say is another story.......
The Rallyist Motor Sport Art Gallery campaign has been planned around two major Motor Sport events in 2018. The Autosport International Racing Car Show at the NEC Birmingham and RaceReto the Historic Motor Sport Show at Stoneleigh Park, Coventry. While the dates for these two events are close, they are not quite close enough.
It is for that reason the 2018 gallery campaign will be split into two sections. Part 1 with cover the Autosport Show, a 30 days Campaign target £20,000, and Part 2 another 30 day programme taking in Race Retro, target £15,000. A sound Business Improvement strategy based on bite sized pieces.
Thankyou for for interest....
Risks and challenges
The Key issues facing many artist wishing to Display Art at Motor Sport events is the cost of those few Square meters of turf on which the Stall Stands. Naturally the cost dictates the size. The Rallyist Stand is 4m x 4m and it has served for 9 Years. However in order to cover some of the cost of attending these events, a wide variety of art and merchandise is required to be also displayed turning the Gallery into a shop.
The Rallyist Motorsport Art Gallery will approach the problem in a radically different way. We will be looking at Sponsorship to cover the running cost of the Gallery, Sponsor require visibility, so a simple 4mx4m Marquee is out, so to are small club rallies and out of the way venues. We have to plan for the bigger events, bigger Venues, and bigger Championships they do cost more.....a lot more but in return sponsor will get more visibility.
By planning around a full 26 event Itinerary we will also be better placed to negotiate prices deals for multiple events with track owners and organisers.
The Gallery will transform for being a Trade Stand to being an Attraction.
