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
