People and Portraits
21 September - 13 October
Preview: 6-9pm, Friday 20 September
Open Wednesday - Sunday, 11am - 5pm
This autumn the gallery will become a dedicated space for Phoenix community projects to be created, showcased and celebrated. Our street art project will grow from outside our building onto the gallery walls to give local young people an opportunity to tell us more about who they are. A pop-up photographic studio will occupy the space and allow local residents and visitors to create family portraits. Phoenix artists will offer portrait-based creative activities for everyone that will transform the space into an evolving visual representation of ourselves, our neighbours and our visitors. Come along, join in and be part of our community.
Included in our activities is the opportunity to come and have your portrait taken with photographer Natasha Bidgood in her pop-up photographic studio! Come along with your family, friends or community group. Your portrait will be added to the display on our gallery walls. Natasha will be in the gallery Saturdays 21, 28 September, and 5 October. Photographic studio sessions are free, but you must book your place either online through Eventbrite, at our reception, or by phone. Sessions are divided into fifteen-minute slots from 11.00-13.00 and 14.00-16.00.
