We are so excited to announce that our Community Art Wall is back up and running!!!
The corridors in Leigh Community Centre form our community exhibition space, showcasing the talents of local artists. As the centre has been closed to the public over the majority of the last 18 months, we are thrilled to once again welcome some colour in our corridors!
The first exhibition since last year has been curated by our past and present Artists in Residence, Kerry Doyland and Susan Allen.
“Art in the Attic” will be running at the centre from 26th July - 10th September.
Susan Allen and Kerry Doyland come from very different creative backgrounds, but they share a love of painting and drawing from life. Their residencies in our attic studio at the Community Centre have afforded them the space to be able to design backdrops in which to set the human form or arrange a still life.
This exhibition will showcase a variety of work created by both artists in the attic here at the Centre. It will also show some of their plein air landscapes done further afield, some as part of Susan’s art teaching and some as a record of Kerry’s time spent painting with Sky Arts.
There will also be pieces painted by local artists who were invited as guests, to the painting sessions in the attic, hosted by Kerry during her residency and now Susan during hers.
Stay tuned for more details about an exhibition and studio open evening on 3rd September 7pm - 9pm to showcase the artwork on offer.
