Gallery

Our artists and community requested they had a place to showcase their work… and so we built it!

THE GALLERY

Gallery

Our large, purpose-built gallery first opened its doors in 2019 and is suitable for all mediums, from large scale sculptural work, to photography, painting and performance. 

We even have a thirty seat mini-cinema to show film and projection work. We’re proud to say that our pilot programme, funded by Arts Council England, was a huge success!

You Are Standing in History

Letty McHugh

A story about Keighley, written by Letty McHugh and illustrated by Leanne Parkin spanning two of the galleries large windows. It can be seen until the end of February 2021.

“For this exhibition I wanted to write something that would encourage people to pause and think about Keighley’s rich and fascinating past. 

I am an artist and writer who has lived in the Worth Valley for most of my life. My work is inspired by the universality of personal experience, which is the art world way of saying I’m interested in personal stories and the things we have in common. In 2019 I spoke at the Tate Exchange, London and I’m currently an Associate Artist with Disability Arts Online. I once narrowly missed out on a space hopper related world record attempt and I’ve never fully recovered!”
