To celebrate the completed improvements to The Old Courthouse, Shap, we will be starting our 2019 program of events with an opening Exhibition titled ‘CHANGES’.

We are intending to have a display of the different uses of the building through the years, from school to courthouse, then library to the present day.

Along with the history display we wish to create an art exhibition in the Exhibit A Gallery space representing CHANGES. As the word ‘changes’ can be widely interpreted we hope that this will create a varied exhibition in subject, style and media, for example artwork, sculpture or photography.

The exhibition will take place in March, when hopefully winter will be ‘changing’ into spring. We are contacting people now, to give them time to consider whether they have, or wish to create, a piece of artwork specifically for the exhibition.

If you would like to take part, start thinking of how you could interpret the word CHANGES, whether it’s; light, colour, weather, seasons, mood, time etc.

Please pass this information on to other artists you may know  who may be interested in exhibiting with us. Please let us know a.s.a.p. if you are interested in submitting work.
