“I might have an interest in a particular conjunction of two things – the relationship of a cup-handle to a cup, for example,” says Ian McKeever.
“It’s often very small things that fire my imagination, it’s rarely big things; within their relationship there’s something interesting: the way that the inside and outside are connected, or an expression of an emotion, or a bodily feeling.”

More Writing Workshops for Children

Following the success of our two writing workshops in the gallery earlier this month, we return with another on Thursday 30th August, from 11am to 12pm.

Come along and consider the stories that art tells; see how art can inspire and inform your writing.

It did for RoaId Dahl – he wrote one of his Tales of the Unexpected – ‘Depart in Peace’ – after a painting he bought in a junk shop lit his imagination. Can a work of art inspire you? Come along and look at the works of Edwin Young Collection.

Storytelling is a crucial part of the art-making process for the artist as much as the art viewer. As artists work from imagination, come and explore yours…Suitable for ages 11- 15

To express an interest contact Kim Harrison, education consultant, at education@younggallerysalisbury.co.uk.

Workshop is 11am – 12pm and costs £3 cash to be paid on the day.

Comments form our last workshop: “The paintings really helped us come up with more in depth ideas…” (Holly), “I really enjoyed it…” (Poppy).

Inaugural AGM

Dear Young Gallery Members,

You are warmly invited to the Young Gallery Members group inaugural General meeting to be held at the gallery on Thursday May 31st 6.30pm -8pm (refreshments from 6pm). The agenda for the meeting is attached below.

 The Young Gallery Members (YGM) aim is to support the gallery as well as to be a hub for people interesetd in the arts. If you would like to stand as a member of the organising committee please email me. Nominations are open for the positions of Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, and other committee members. We have some names in the frame but more are needed. Being part of the committee at this time in the gallery’s history will be fascinating, a chance to help shape the future of the gallery, and not too time consuming. If you have any questions or would like to meet up for a chat- again, please email me.

The campaign continues to bring great art to the Young Gallery. Following on from the very successful Kathe Kollwitz exhibtion visited by 4,500 people  Ken Kiff is  also proving very popular. In June  British Figurative Art of the 20C exhibition will open showing some of the greats. There are now  a growing group of people supporting the gallery and its future plans. Do consider getting involved.

Please RSVP info@younggallerysalisbury.co.uk
