To commemorate the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, East Boldon Forum is working with the Community Foundation, Gosforth and Cultural Spring to have an exhibition in honour of the Platinum Jubilee that celebrates local nature through art.
The exhibition will take place at the Boldon and Cleadon Community Library on Saturday June 4th between 11.00am and 2.00pm.
All schools in Boldon, Cleadon and Whitburn are invited to take part.
Artist Carol White (www.carolsart.co.uk) will work with the community to produce exhibits. Provided that the Forum’s bid for funding is successful free classes will be available at the Boldon and Cleadon Community Library. Dates to be confirmed. Anyone may take part.
Exhibition space is limited. We anticipate many entries. A4 pieces would be helpful.
Media other than photography, painting and drawing are also encouraged including collage, poetry, mixed media, textiles and sculpture. The list is not exhaustive and any media are welcome.
Forum members are working with Katy Milne, Cultural Programme Officer at South Tyneside Council, to find ways of bringing the art to the attention of residents across the borough later in the Jubilee year.
