Join us on Saturday 2nd July for the preview of our exciting new exhibition, Make Up and Magic, featuring the work of up and coming visual fx company, Tankfall FX.
The doors open at 5pm and there will be food and drink available for all those who pop by to see this great exhibition before it opens to the public.
From Animatronics, to models, prosthetics, to film we have a wide variety of brilliant visual treats for fans of fx and as always the exhibition is completely free to view although donations are always welcome.
If you are a filmmaker and looking for talent to work on your next production you could do worse than having a chat with TankFall FX! Like Hampshire Film Co we have been hugely impressed by the quality and skill of their work.
If you cannot make it to the launch we are back open next Thursday and then every Thursday, Friday and Saturday until the exhibition ends on July 30th.
We wanted to share this image with you of a local mini artist who we met with a couple of weeks ago. He loves football and art and a week after talking with us he returned with his mum and older brother with a picture he promised us the week before to add to our kids and community art wall.
His mum said he had been looking forward to bringing in his work all week.... things like this make us proud and happy.
So on Thursday 7th May we launched the physical Sticks Gallery and held the inaugural private view of an exhibition at our temporary contemporary gallery space in Fareham Hampshire.
The evening was a great success, fantastic local artists we know and love, came down. Artists we'd never met before turned up; shop workers, local press...... a right mixture of all sorts of people.
It was a great chance to tell people and the local paper what we hope to achieve and how as part of our plan, we aim to be the first autism friendly gallery. We have done a lot to make this a reality; including creating an art gallery social story; the use of PECs, autism art drop ins, a chill out area, and low level lighting. You can even download a copy of our social story from this site, or through the Live Art Local site.
Here are some images of our opening night for your perusal
