Art lovers are invited to an immersive exhibition next month – with the opportunity to get up close and personal with local art history – including meeting Richard Burton’s Camel and exploring 3D local landscapes.
Young artists from all over West London have come together at Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham to create an interactive exhibition and are now inviting attendees to participate and play with historical images.
From 6 July to 20 August the Stables Gallery will host the Picture Play Exhibition.
Co-created by over 500 young people and around 200 families, the theme of the exhibition inspired young artists to think digitally and the competition encouraged them to transform their drawings of beloved Richmond areas into pixelated pictures.
Two local artists worked with 19 schools, five community groups, and 10 regular art groups at the Gallery to bring the project to life.
The project is funded by The Arts Society Richmond, and the exhibition is free to visit.
Cllr Meena Bond, Richmond Council Cabinet Member for Arts and Culture, said:
“It is very important to support young artists to pursue their dreams while inspiring others to do the same.
“This exhibition is a perfect example of how to accomplish both, while at the same time providing Richmond residents with the opportunity to see wonderful pieces of artwork”.
The Gallery is open Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 5pm.
