Residents will be showcasing their artwork at a display in town as part of the annual Home Grown exhibition.
All pieces will have been created in workshops in the Corn Exchange’s Get Involved programme, and will be displayed alongside the work of their tutors at New Greenham Arts.
Kerrie Walker, the Corn Exchange’s learning and participation administrator, said: “I hope people will take inspiration from the pieces in this exhibition to get creative and we look forward to welcoming new participants in the exciting, expanded programme that we will be presenting in our autumn season.”
Visitors will also be able to gain an insight into the Corn Exchange’s wider participatory programme, as the exhibition will also feature art created in sessions linked to their Ageing Creatively strand of work for those over 55, as well as videos of performances from some of the youth groups.
The Get Involved programme offers regular art courses and one-off classes that allow you to develop your existing skills, learn new techniques or try something completely new.
The classes are a wide range of social, creative and inclusive chances to get more out of your local arts centre and it’s designed for everyone from young to old. Classes and workshops include dance, drama, art, events management and many more.
The exhibition is free, and is open from 10am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, between Friday, June 16 and Thursday, July 13.
The Corn Exchange and New Greenham Arts are two of the south east’s most dynamic venues presenting theatre, music, dance, comedy, film, family events, talks and visual arts, all year round.
