    We had around 100 people of all ages at the Private View of the exhibition Environmental Crisis.

     

    It was an amazing evening with a wonderful performance by Helen Adove Hawk, titled 'Queen of the Forest'. This beautiful and moving piece comprises experimental soundscapes, songs, Butoh dance and spoken word.

    We had over 300 entries to our Open Call for the Environmental Crisis Exhibition and have chosen over 60 works from all over the world!

     

    Young People aged 14-18 who have chosen Science, Art and Geography for GCSE and A-Level judged the entries across two days. We felt it important to have young voices represented by having them help in deciding who to exhibit, as this issue has been youth led and impacts their future the most.

     

    We are now looking forward to next month when the exhibition opens on 13th February with a drinks reception 4pm-8pm. Please join us.

     

    As a gallery with learning at its core we are proud to hold this exhibition on such an important topic and would like to give space to raising awareness and understanding the environmental crisis.
