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



Our large, purpose-built gallery first opened its doors in 2019 and is suitable for just about everything! 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 and so we’re carrying on the good work! 


Drawing Dialogue 3


Project Curated by Gabriela Boiangiu

10 June- 1 July 2021

Monday   11am – 3pm

Thursday   11am – 3pm

Saturday   10am – 4pm

The Drawing Dialogue Project started in 2015 when Romanian born artist, curator, and studio holder at Keighley Creative, Gabriela Boiangiu had the idea of creating an open call for artists who were interested in using drawing as a way of creating work together.

Gabriela explains “You have to be open to this experience. It can be challenging receiving an image created by another artist and responding to it in an inclusive and creative way, but it pushes you as an artist to try new things and think about the language of drawing.”

This exhibition features Drawing Dialogues: Chapter 3, the most comprehensive display of work the project has had since it began, featuring 36 artists from all around the world!

“This is our first Drawing Dialogues exhibition in 3 years, and we’re so excited to finally display the amazing collaborative work of these artists. This drawing exchange is a dialogue using visual communication rather than words. We all use an A2 sized surface and negotiate the space and forms as well as new themes using this experimental approach. The work that comes from this process is very exciting.” Gabriela Boiangiu

Private View on Saturday 26th June, 6-8pm
