A pop-up art gallery in the heart of Leigh will open on Tuesday 14 January in association with Faux Workshop and Gallery and Southend Adult Community College.

The first venture of its kind for the College, the gallery will be launched as a platform for college arts and crafts learners to exhibit a group show. Open from Tuesday 14 January until Saturday 25 January it will offer a unique viewing experience in a creative and friendly atmosphere.

The temporary space will exclusively offer customers information by experienced tutors and staff on all college courses; giving an incentive for local residents of all ages to pursue a hobby or a new skill to coincide with a new year’s resolution. Honouring Southend Adult Community College’s commitment to the local creative Leigh community and to a new generation of upcoming artists, the shop will also host demos, workshops and Q&A sessions from art professionals.

Southend Adult Community College recently announced it will be sponsoring two local events in Leigh in 2014, the Leigh Art Trail and the Hademade Fair on the 22nd November.
