With the weather hot, consider popping into the Glasshouse to see an explosion of colour as the Neon Summer exhibition is in full swing.

Kids and adults alike have the opportunity to take part in fun arts and crafts activities all through January according to Neon Summer curator Niomi Sands.

“We wanted to create a space that was bright and colourful for everyone, and Neon Summer does it.

“The exhibition explores how contemporary art can inspire the imagination and create a dazzling world through vivid colour, magnificent form and breathtaking fantasy.

“And to coincide, we are also hosting free arts and craft events throughout January for people to come and create their own artwork, keyrings, flowers and ice creams,” Ms Sands said.

The family friendly activities are running in both the exhibition gallery and Glasshouse forecourt and will run all through the week.

As part of the Neon Summer exhibition there will also be a big day of family fun organised on January 14 coinciding with local artists working in the exhibition, and galley curator Niomi Sands, said that people will kick themselves if they miss out.

“At the Family Fun Day we will also have artists in residence as part of our Neon Local exhibit, so people can chat, mix and get creative with our four artists who will, and are currently displaying work in the Neon Summer exhibition,” she said.
