Community shows by definition, showcase the creative attributes of the people who work or live in the area. This exhibition is described as “vibrant and joyful”, and it certainly is that. Prospect Gallery is a brightly lit space that adjoins Prospect Library. Exhibitions such as this one not only showcase the creativity and diversity of Art but also the pride of place the community puts on such work. Prospect is a community that is famous for their creative culture. Since the inaugural community show in 1982 this show is a must see in the calendar year. This year it features 76 works in a variety of mediums; from photography, to stencilling, traditional painting to sculpture, there is something for everyone’s taste. Even a hand crafted working harp! The show is up on display until the 20th of January.
