White Cloth Gallery in Leeds to announce a SYRETT Solo Show in June. Dates TBC
White Cloth Photography and Film primary aim is to provide a unique space for established artists to exhibit and elevate projects of particular importance while at the same time providing a platform for emerging artists to showcase their work.
The gallery and its events space also has a pioneering vision to support the artistic community, encourage creativity and work alongside other local arts organisations to aid the city’s burgeoning development as a cultural centre and to become a go-to destination for art lovers everywhere.
Throughout these endeavours they also promote a socially aware and progressive approach to visual culture and aim to create a sense of community, attracting artists and visitors from all walks of life.
WCG have been able to bring this project to fruition thanks to the support of charity Regeneration Through the Arts and property asset Management Company, Vektor Investments Ltd. The gallery is part of a wider urban renewal programme to build and energize communities whilst giving local artists much needed support to gain a foothold in an increasingly competitive and challenging industry.
Endorsing and raising funds for a number of charities, a percentage of the gallery’s sales and events income are donated to its elected charities.
Core to its objectives as a centre for arts and visual culture, the gallery will host regular events including workshops, seminars, screenings and book signings giving visitors the chance to meet those who exhibit.
White Cloth Gallery is also home to the WCG fully licensed Café and bar – a cool and vibrant urban retreat, serving up tasty snacks for those looking to enjoy the exhibitions, as well as those just looking to grab a drink or a bit to eat.
