The Old Lock Up Gallery Update
Dear friend of The Old Lock Up Gallery,
I hope you're all keeping well and managing to navigate the recent lockdown.
I wanted to get in touch and keep you all updated with news about the current show at the gallery - the 'Winter Show' and a project that I've recently launched online and via the galleries website.
The Winter Show is available to view online via the galleries website whilst we are closed: https://www.theoldlockupgallery.org/winter-catalogue.
I've also launched a fundraising project via the website called 'Letters of Hope' - raising much needed funds for a fabulous charity called 'Arts Emergency' - you can view their website here: https://www.arts-emergency.org.
Arts Emergency are an awarding winning mentoring charity and support network. Working long term with talented young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The galleries new project is called 'Letters of Hope' and in short is a project where you can send in, receive or nominate someone to receive a letter - full of hope, love and compassion.
It seems a fitting time to launch the project and raise funds for this really great charity. I've supported them for the last 4 years via The Secret Postcard Show. And the gallery and I feel so very well supported throughout this pandemic - that I wanted to do something for others within the arts sector.
I hope you can find some time to participate - either to nominate someone to receive a letter or to send a letter/poem/picture etc: for further information visit the galleries website here: https://www.theoldlockupgallery.org/hope.
