Northwich gallery hopes to provide more for budding artists
A NORTHWICH gallery will be expanding in the New Year to provide extra work space for budding young artists.
ArtWork Studios and Gallery first opened its doors in Navigation Road in April, transforming the former Yarwood ship builder’s office into a creative space for exhibitions and classes.
Artists from across the north west have displayed their talents in the gallery - which is managed by local arts group, the London Road Collective (LRC) - with craft clubs, artist talks and special art workshops also taking place on a regular basis.
Now, after almost seven months of success, the LRC is hoping to offer even more by creating work space for a further 11 artists, as well as extending the exhibition gallery floor space.
“We can continue to show the contemporary art by our young talented artists from Sir John Deane’s College and Mid Cheshire College, as well as touring exhibitions from artists around the country,” said Carolyn Shepherd, founder of the LRC.
“We have presented out first Arts Award certificate to a young achiever who followed an art council programme of art education with us and we will be developing this further next year to enable young people aged five to 25 to get involved in the arts.”
Earlier this year, Sir John Deane’s College donated a kiln to the studio, which is now being used to create its first batch of handmade glass jewellery.
