GALLERY OLD­HAM

Glossop Advertiser - - News -

IT’S all change here at Gallery Old­ham this week as we in­stall three new ex­hi­bi­tions. Start­ing in the foyer we are de­lighted to wel­come our very own Old­ham The­atre Work­shop pre­sent­ing ‘Mak­ing an Ex­hi­bi­tion of Our­selves’, a show de­vel­oped and put to­gether by a team of our young peo­ple. Cel­e­brat­ing their 50th an­niver­sary this year, Old­ham The­atre Work­shop have evolved into one of the coun­try’s lead­ing youth and com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions, ● and we are ex­tremely proud of their achieve­ments.

Join us on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 27 at 6pm for a look at the ex­hi­bi­tion with some of the par­tic­i­pants.

Up­stairs in Gallery 2 we present ‘Refuge’ a new ex­hi­bi­tion of work by artist Jai Chuhan as part of the Asia Tri­en­nial Manch­ester 18.

For this ex­hi­bi­tion Jai will pre­miere new paint­ings and cre­ate a sculp­ture, tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from her po­si­tion as an In­di­an­born Bri­tish artist and ex­plor­ing ex­is­ten­tial themes such as refuge, con­flict, love, birth and death. The Asia Tri­en­nial will run across Manch­ester with a se­ries of ex­hi­bi­tions and events.

More de­tails can be found at www. asi­a­tri­en­nial­manch­ester. com Over in the Com­mu­nity Gallery we wel­come Old­ham pho­tog­ra­pher Lisa Marie Gee with ‘Open Shut­ters’, a pow­er­ful and strik­ing se­ries of por­traits of peo­ple who have ex­pe­ri­enced men­tal ill­ness and who have found strength and di­rec­tion from their in­di­vid­ual men­tal health jour­neys. The ex­hi­bi­tion runs un­til Novem­ber 10.

As the new sea­son gets un­der­way we are thrilled to wel­come back our youngest vis­i­tors as GO Baby and GO Ex­plor­ers re­turn. Bring your lit­tle ones along to ex­plore the world through tex­tures, sounds and sen­sory play, meet other par­ents and car­ers and make new friends at these pop­u­lar ses­sions.
