PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION LAUNCHES NEW CROYDON GALLERY SPACE
Croydon has launched a new town centre gallery space with an exhibition of international photography.
Croydon Clocktower in Katharine Street is hosting the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) – Visual Art Members Exhibition from now until 11 March 2017.
The event, supported by the Museum of Croydon, represents the launch of this space as a new public gallery as it is the first exhibition to be held there, with more planned throughout the year.
Around 100 prints from more than 90 artists will be displayed over the next three weeks – and although the RPS has international membership, several of the artists are local to Croydon.
Cllr Timothy Godfrey, cabinet member for culture, said: “”This new exhibition space, right in front of the Museum of Croydon at Croydon Clocktower, is in an ideal location in the centre of town. We look forward to welcoming many more similar events throughout the year. Croydon is evolving, with its arts and cultural offer growing rapidly, and with the £30million investment in Fairfield Halls underway and plans for a 2,000 sq m art gallery; brand new college; and 200 new homes formally approved last week, the future is bright”
