New Year: New exhibition!
The Welcome Swallow Gallery Exhibition and F5 refresh that rounded out 2020, saw over 70% of the catalogue sold. With this resounding success we look forward to starting 2021 with a new exhibition entitled, Joy of Humanity: People & Place. The exhibition will run from 22nd January till 26th March. New artists to the gallery, Juliet Roper and Martin Necas will be joined with compositions from existing gallery artists Bernadette Parsons and Rebecca Dowman-Ngapo. The chosen curatorial theme is designed to reflect a year in which the global pandemic and related challenges can be placed - replaced - with a narrative art form that is positive, constructive and celebratory. Come the day.
Join us for the exhibition launch in the gallery from 5.30pm onwards on Friday 22nd January! Look out for the online catalogue that will be available on the day of the launch.
