‘Children’s Paintings’

18 October 1984 — 24 October 1984

From Thursday 18th October there will be not one but two exhibitions at the Castlefield Gallery. Work from a series of children’s workshops held in the gallery in September will be on show in the gallery until Wednesday 24th October, alongside paintings by artists Tricia Gillman and Sarah Feinmann.

Three groups of children, aged between 5 and 10, from three schools in Salford, each spent a day in the gallery. Working with their teachers and local artist Sarah Feinmann, the children tried out various approaches to picture-making. The schools and Salford Education Department co-operated in the running of the workshops and in the mounting of the exhibition – and the children have added their accounts of a day spent in an art gallery.

There will be a special preview opening of this exhibition at 6pm on Thursday 18th October – you are warmly invited to come along and meet our young artists.
