The wonderful Joanna Greenhill opened her art exhibition last night at Ort Gallery - the first exhibition to be held there as part of the 12 month 'Emerge' project funded by the Arts Council.
Ort have already established themselves locally as an important arts venue, supporting a range of activities for local people by local people, many of which are free or very cheap - see sunday workshop programme below.
The Emerge programme supports exhibiting work reflecting the diversity of the area. It will deal with issues on a human level, like unemployment and poverty - issues important to many residents locally.
The programme, and the Ort mission, will go further in reflecting all in our local community, promote debate about issues important to us, and take action to nurture and develop our community.
We are delighted to be associated with Ort, an impressive art venue with a growing reputation. Hope to see you there soon!
