The past few weeks have seen the gallery take shape with wonderful new exhibitions and intriguing installations. During this busy time we had the honour of hosting a ‘Year of Communication’ project with a variety of schools from the Cheshire area. The ‘Year of Communication’ had a theme ‘More Than Words’ and had art, dance and drama workshop sessions, delivered brilliantly by our practitioners Laura and Becky, that tapped into our Fireworks video installation, Siobhan Davies’ Rota and Intuition ‘Outsider Art’ exhibitions. I’d like to say a massive thank you to Julie Smith (Mottram St Andrew’s Primary) and Mark Payne (Fallibroome Academy) for their vision, enthusiasm and patience during what was an incredibly lively period for the gallery. Schools that took part in the project were; Fallibroome Academy, Park Lane, Mottram St Andrews, Bollinbrook Primary, Whirley Primary, Upton Priory, Prestbury Primary and Nether Alderely. We had so much fun and can’t wait to get started on next years theme!
