Fat Life Drawing X The Civic
THURSDAY 6TH MAY
We are going to be running a series of collaborative classes with the wonderful Fat Life Drawing throughout the No Boundaries season.
Fat Life Drawing is made up of Emily and Isobel; two sisters living in London and Harrogate who put together FLD after finding that most life drawing sessions lacked diversity and inclusivity.
Their goal has been to create a comfortable and safe, judgement-free space for like-minded creatives to come together.
They have been running virtual classes since June 2020 and have raised over £21,000 for various charities and fundraisers.
The sessions are conducted over Zoom, with a link being sent out to participants a short time beforehand.
We hope you can join us!
Caroline Cardus – The Way Ahead (WORKSHOPS)
Starting in March 2021, artist Caroline Cardus has led our project for Here and Now, a national celebration of culture within communities.
Working with local support groups for disabled people in Barnsley and South Yorkshire, attendees have been exploring the barriers they face in society through familiar road signs.
Out of Chaos
Is now a good time?

How many hats do you own?
Would you rather be too hot or too cold?
Are your first impressions of someone usually accurate?
Sam and Alex work in the same call centre. Sometimes they sit next to each other. They really love their job but there’s something missing. You might need to help them figure out what that is.
Is Now A Good Time? is a charming, funny and unexpected story, told in a truly original way.
Perfect Imperfects – Jasper Pedyo
TUESDAY 18TH MAY – SATURDAY 17TH JULY 2021
Our Gallery will be opening on 18 May with Perfect Imperfects, a solo exhibition by Jasper Pedyo.
Jasper has already won the prestigious 2018 Free Range exhibition prize in London, for his striking mixed media paintings which feature a bold use of binary colours on stretched and shaped canvases.
Jasper has visited the gallery from a very young age and it’s great to see how his practice has developed over those years.
Jasper on how contemporary culture influences his work:
“I paint contemporary culture without necessarily having to obviously state what it is. I take what I think is aesthetically pleasing about an object and intensify it by simplifying it and reducing it to its bare elements. You might not necessarily recognise what my paintings were inspired by, but that’s not the point.”
Although visiting the exhibition is free, advanced booking is required at this time.
