Nine Locks Art Group Exhibition

Brierley Hill’s Nine Locks Art Group is exhibiting at Dudley Canal Trust’s Portal building over the next two months. Led by their tutor, Tim Nash, this small gathering of like-minded people meets every Monday at Brierley Hill Neighbourhood Learning Centre to discuss and develop their painting skills.

“We’re so excited for Nine Locks Art Group to be exhibiting at the Portal”, said Holly Wain, Heritage Activities Assistant at Dudley Canal Trust (Trips) Ltd. “This is a great opportunity to support local artists and perhaps encourage visitors to get involved in joining an art group”.

Works on display range from industrial scenes, canal-side views and autumnal landscapes in a variety of different styles and media.

Major funding partners for the project to create the Portal include the European Regional Development Fund £997,000, Heritage Lottery Fund £989,000, Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership £755,000 and Biffa Award £500,000. Other charitable donors include The Garfield Weston Foundation, J P Getty Jr Charitable Trust, Headley Trust, The Wolfson Foundation, Dudley Canal Trust, Dudley Canal Trust (Trips), and £30,000 raised by a public appeal.

The exhibition is free to visit and will run from 7th November – 5th January 2017. All of the original artwork featured in the exhibition will be for sale.
