We have booked an exhibition space! Andy Farr approached Coventry Artspace, who are based in one of the city centre shopping arcades and they had some availability in the autumn. We’ve booked a space to showcase the Portraits of Coventry from 13 September 2021 to 17 October 2021. Alongside exhibiting Andy’s work, we will also be presenting some of the pieces produced by the Foleshill Creates At Home project, which took place between November 2020 and February 2021, allowing Orbit customers and other Coventry residents to take part in virtual art workshops. We are planning to run another exhibition at the Broad Street Meeting Hall in Foleshill, which has been completely rebuilt and is now a fantastic community amenity, and the home of Foleshill Creates.
Andy’s progress so far
Andy has completed six portraits so far. He has worked on two portraits of members of the Foleshill community with interesting back stories (including Daksha Piparia, who runs Foleshill Creates) and is now interviewing some Orbit Independent Living customers who’ve expressed an interest in the project.
