Launch of the King of the Cats at The Whitaker Museum and Art Gallery, Rossendale

Launch night at The Whitaker Museum and Art Gallery in Rossendale was a blast. Really busy and bustling with lots of people including family and friends of all the artists.

It was lovely to see old friends and supporters of Arteach. 
Including Bob Frith was there from Horse and Bamboo who we went to talk to when we first set up as a group quite a few years ago now. Frank Royal and Lynsey from Traweden Primary School who were one of the first to buy into the vision of giving artists space in their school for us to work as well as working with teachers and children throughout the school. 
It was also good to meet curators from the future venues where the exhibition is touring too.

Carl from the Whitaker gave a fab speech, at first voicing his concerns when we turned up the day before to set up the exhibition and then his surprise and pleasure at what he thinks is a fabulous display of high quality diverse range of work that fits together to create a very good exhibition with work for everyone to engage with and enjoy. 

We then had three of the tales retold by Jacqueline Harris our storyteller standing behind
the King of the Cats.

Thank you for everyone who made the journey to the show which is now on till 9th November
Opening Times  are 10am – 4pm, Tuesday to Sunday.
