The Hayloft Art Gallery in Wick Lane, Christchurch, has confirmed that it is to re-open on 16 April following the announcement that step two of the government’s roadmap will go ahead on 12 April.
The gallery has planned a full programme of exhibitions for the rest of the year, with various artists working in mixed media, textiles, designer jewellery, wood, pottery and traditional and abstract paintings.
The first artist to exhibit will be Alan Hayden who will be demonstrating his work every day from 10.30am. Alan has always lived in the Christchurch area, and the surrounding countryside provides the main focus for his work. He uses a variety of mediums including oil, watercolour and acrylic and his paintings have been displayed around the town for many years.
Alan has a deep interest in wildlife, particularly in the birds. Originally, his work reflected this, containing many illustrations and paintings of the wildlife he studied. Over time, the landscape of the areas he visited became more of a focal point, with Christchurch Harbour, Hengistbury Head and the Avon Valley providing inspiration for Alan’s unique style.
The exhibition will include many original paintings produced during lockdown, and prints of old favourites will be available.
