I’ve been exhibiting my work on a long term basis here for a while now. I love that it’s not a traditional gallery space as it’s set in an abandoned BHS store. It’s situated right in the centre of Sutton Coldfield so easily accessible. I tend to go in once a week and have a good chat about art and life with Gav who is the main person running this gallery. I’m working towards an art installation/ fashion show which I will put on here in March 2020. There’s quite a broad spectrum of artists on display within the space. It’s a great space for not only wall art but bigger more ambitious projects. They also encourage artists to have community engagement, there’s often public events put on here. It’s a valuable asset making creative use of an old store. I suggest you check the space out and hopefully support it

I have been exhibiting in this gallery in a long term basis since May 2019. Space itself is fantastic: big, light, with different options of hanging works on walls of in the window which both I use. I also do love the approach to support artists and the location of the gallery.

Direct Art Action in Sutton Coldfield is a hidden gem! Located in the former Bhs store it is a huge art gallery with ever changing exhibitions so there's always something new to see. There is also a café and gift shop, all very reasonably priced. Well worth a visit!!

Direct Art Action is an artist collective based in West Midlands. We show case the work of local, regional and international artists, many of whom work closely with our galleries and studios.  Direct Art Action is historically a grassroots collective supporting degree students and post graduate artists. Now we work with and represent many established and time served practitioners. Direct Art Action welcomes all artists and public that are interested in artists and their work. We continually hold exhibitions for diverse and particular disciplines as well as some commercial practices. We are always excited to meet the next amazing talent and provide a platform for audiences to appreciate their work! Direct Art Action currently occupies ten commercial premises and we have converted these into galleries and studios. If you are an artist you can arrange a gallery and studio tour, and if you are a patron then please come and enjoy our work.
