On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Golden Thread Gallery, it is with great pleasure that I invite you to join us as we launch the gtGallery at its new premises, the Switch Room, 84 –94 Great Patrick Street, Belfast.
Things we may have missed is an exhibition showcasing aspects of gtGallery’s history to date and is our première exhibition at the Switch Room premises. The exhibition features many of the artists that we have had the privilege to work with in the nine years we have spent on the Crumlin Road. Things we may have missed, a curated collection of works taken from our past projects, will provide a unique opportunity to celebrate aspects of the rich and diverse Northern Irish culture through the visual arts.
Without the nine years of invaluable support from the Flax Trust, we would not have been in the position to respond to this new and exciting opportunity – and we would like to thank them for it. We are now looking forward to furthering our relationship with Robinson McIlwaine Architects, whose enthusiasm and support to date has been much appreciated.
Thanks should also be extended to all of you who have supported, visited and worked with us during our years on the Crumlin Road, and we hope that you will all continue to do so in our new location. We would also like to thank our key partners and core funders; the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, the Belfast City Council and the Ardoyne Shankill Health Partnership.
Schools, colleges and community group visits to the gallery are welcomed. Please contact the gallery to book group tours and talks in advance, or to find out more about our associated activities.
