Shieldfield Home: Opening Preview

Friday 2 December 6pm - 9pm NewBridge Gallery

Join us for the preview of Shieldfield Home, our exciting winter exhibition showcasing art made by those who work and live in Shieldfield!

Friday 2 December 

6pm – 9pm 

The NewBridge Project Gallery space

Shieldfield Home is an exhibition celebrating art made in Shieldfield by local artists, makers and NewBridge‘s own artist community! All kinds of art, craft and creativity will be exhibited – from drawings and paintings to photography, films and books to craft, design & digital art, floral, textiles, fashion, music & sound.

Join us for a special opening preview in The NewBridge Project Gallery. Artworks will be displayed in their custom-designed showroom in our gallery. Some of the art will be for sale too. This preview evening is part of Shieldfield Home’s opening weekend, with free activities for all ages to get involved in.

There will be a bar operating a Challenge 25 policy. All children must be accompanied by an adult and are not permitted on site after 7pm.

The exhibition runs in two parts, with the first segment running from Saturday 3 December –  Saturday 21 January followed by Part two, with new works added from Saturday 28 January – Saturday 25 February. A full programme of events for anyone to get involved in will be launching alongside the exhibition.

We made Shieldfield our home back in October 2021 and we have been warmly welcomed to the area and look forward to meeting more of Shieldfield’s makers and artists.

Shieldfield Home starts off The NewBridge Project’s theme ‘The Home’. They will be producing a long term programme of exhibitions, events, talks and workshops which explore ‘The Home’, what it means in their community and space in Shieldfield.
