Event Details May 2018


Art by Email: Beyond Boundaries 1st May - 14th June

Art By email The exhibition will run from 1st May through to 14th June.   It will be open for viewing between 10am-3pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays @ The Island Gallery, Queen's Mill, Castleford.

Art by Email: Beyond Boundaries celebrates the fact that technology can be used to share Art, ideas and information anywhere in the world.   The exhibition showcases the work of nine artists from the Middle East and Northern Africa with a number of different themes and ideas being explored around life where the artists live.

We invite the local community to come and view the artworks, to think about what the artists are communicating and to look for the contrasts and connections between what is presented and how we can relate this to life in Castleford and the surrounding areas.

There will be an interactive area where visitors can leave their thoughts and take part in an activity sharing their thoughts on our town.

The exhibition is a collaboration between Yorkshire Sculpture Park and Art Role and has previously been on display at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

The exhibition is sponsored by SysServers.

Please be aware that the exhibition will not be open on Saturday May 12th as the volunteers will be at the Castleford Boat Festival
