Rooftop Gallery Update March 2013
Open wed-sat 11- 4 and thur late opening till 8pm

We are One
We held our inaugural meetings on 14th and 16th March last year when 40 people agreed to take
forward my vision of a “centrally accessible place for the making and showing of Art”. And here we are
just short of a year later with 9 studios housing 11 Artists and our 8th exhibition. We have shown work
by over 100 Artists in 5 collective exhibitions and 3 private shows. Work is being made on the
premises and other individuals are displaying their own work. We have had several events – for
example hosting the Over 50’s Drama group Arts Alive and the Darts theatre company, as well as a
Latvian film night. We also showed a new film about Jim Lockhart, our oldest exhibitor. Classes and
groups happen all the all in all we have done what we set out to do.Each exhibition has been well attended and we have a steady stream of enquiries and are well supported by the media. All this without a signpost yet!!! Imagine the footfall when we have signposting.The schools have yet to get on board in any significant way ....but word of mouth is the tried and tested Corby method of publicizing anything. So tell your friends.

Celebrate: Join us in Thursday at 7pm for a celebration social. Bring refreshments.

Art 4 All kicked off with a bang on Friday night. 50 exhibitors ranging from 3yrs to 70yrs
showing 112 pieces of work. The positive effect on our proud first time exhibitors was visible
for all to see. Andrej did some great photos. Thanks to Chloe and Scott for starting the
process of choosing where to hang things - Andrej, Ray and Tim for the bulk of the hanging
and then to the rest of the team for making the final decisions and rehanging once all the late
entries arrived - Phil, Hannah, Dace, Nick and Merridan. Huge thanks to Kate for labels and
programme with her lovely assistant Egbert.

It will be up for a month open from 11-4 Wednesday to Saturday and open till 8pm on
