As you are likely aware, The Core building is shut to the public, and this includes The Courtyard Gallery. We are just as disappointed as our visitors that the fantastic art exhibitions that we had planned for the coming months will not be going ahead.
However, we have been trialling a new way of displaying our artwork, in the form of a “Virtual Gallery” using both the Core Theatre website, and The Courtyard Gallery’s own Facebook page.
Our inaugural online exhibition “VE Day: A Shared Moment of Celebration” was a collective effort, combining artwork from a variety of talented artists, including members from local art societies. Staff from The Core Theatre sent out requests to local artists, asking for artwork that related to World War II and VE Day Celebrations. We were overwhelmed, and incredibly impressed, by the artwork that was submitted for exhibition, and the overall result was a complete success.
We shall continue to use the Courtyard Gallery Facebook page in this way whilst lockdown continues, in order to showcase some of the great artwork that was due to be displayed on the gallery walls.
