Behind the Scenes Walk & Talk
An opportunity for teaching staff to see this exhibition before it opens to the public – the artists will be in attendance during the Teacher First so as to be able to explain their creative practice.
Kirkby Gallery is delighted to present ‘5’, an exhibition showcasing five of the best painters that are currently living or working in the borough. These artists are Gary McGillivray, Gill Cowley, Leslie Briggs, Mike Kirby and Nick Daly. The exhibition also comes as the fifth anniversary of Kirkby Gallery in its new, contemporary home within the Kirkby Centre building. Since 2013, we have presented 15 major exhibitions and have celebrated the work of over 388 artists.
In this exhibition, we explore the practice of each artist and show a rare insight into how they develop their ideas from sketches through to fully accomplished paintings. Complimenting this and taking a central position within the gallery, will be ‘The Artist’s Studio’ and as its name suggests, on certain days in the week, the exhibiting artists will take residency within the studio, enabling the public to observe and engage with them about their work.
This space can additionally be used by families and school groups to make art.
