SOLAR GALLERY Ilkley 30 March – 23 June 2019
March 13, 2019

I am one of 30 Founding Artists and a small Planning Group Volunteer for the new SOLAR GALLERY situated within the stunning ILKLEY MANOR HOUSE and am very excited at the prospect of exhibiting with other enthusiastic and talented artists who share the same vision for the gallery.
.
The aim is to provide a vibrant heritage, creative and fun arts hub in Ilkley offering a wide range of activities, events and exhibitions as well as a collaborative work and meeting space for artists, and studio spaces to rent.
.
The Solar Gallery will be partnered by the Manor House Trust and Ilkley Arts and will showcase the 30 founding artists work.
.
There will be a calendar programme of 4 themes/displays running through the gallery year. We are working with the idea of using ‘light’ as the focus for the months of July, August & September. The first exhibition has no theme but incorporates the work of all the 30 artists who have signed up to take part.
.
Ilkley Manor House was gifted to the town in the 60s to be both a museum and art gallery and so establishing the Solar Gallery within the Manor House is a natural extension of its development.
.
The new gallery, situated in the room at the top of the stairs in Ilkley Manor House, has been named the Solar Gallery. The Solar Room was one of the historical names given to this room, aptly named due to the light pouring in from the magnificent stone mullioned windows on three sides. We thought this name was perfect for the new art gallery.
.
The Launch Preview Evening Tuesday 26 March, 6-8pm was officially opened by Colin Neville at 7pm.
