This year’s winter exhibition at the Centre in early December will showcase individual creative responses to the pandemic; art in its broadest form.

The brief for participants, including our staff and resident artists, was to share a piece of artwork that best reflects their pandemic experience. It might be a photo, video, artwork, sculpture, embroidery, piece of writing or anything else that best captured the moment in history when the pandemic was first declared and the UK went into lockdown in March 2020.

The last 18 months have been difficult, but we’ve also seen an outpouring of energy, creativity and resourcefulness that brought us together, made us laugh and helped make sense of what was happening in the world.

The exhibition open-evening event runs from 4pm to 9pm on Friday 3rd December, all welcome.  For more information please email artist Sheenagh.McKinlay@bbbc.org.uk.

The show continues until January. Just drop in Monday to Friday from Monday 6th December. You can enjoy refreshments and see our Christmas decorations too, when you visit our café.

Plus, weekend open studios 4th/5th December

Three of our resident community artists will be running open studios at the Centre on the weekend of 4th and 5th December. Everyone is welcome, 11am-6pm, where you can see the ‘A Year Apart’ exhibition at the same time.

Booking is not necessary. Current Covid guidelines will be followed. For further information about the weekend open studios, email artist murude.mehmet@bbbc.org.uk.

During your visit you will also be able to see the beautiful mural created by artist Joy Girvin and members of the community.
