FREE – MONDAY 20th April – FRIDAY 24th April 2015 – 10am to 5pm daily

Based on Pavel Althamer’s project ‘The Neighbours’ created for The New Museum, New York, ‘Inviting the Neighbours around to Paint‘ invites members of the public and different community groups to work, play and express themselves through the medium of paint, colour, drawing and words.

Over the course of this week, The Project Space shop front will become an open studio and street level gallery, that will be hosted each day by a different invited artist. As the week progresses, the space will transform with the gradual accumulation of drawings and paintings.

Artist Timetable:
Monday 20th April – Marega Palser
Tuesday 21st April – ArtRaT
Wednesday 22nd April – Stephanie Roberts
Thursday 23rd April – Barrie Morgan
Friday 24th – Steven George Jones
This is a Free event and all materials will be supplied, and is open to all ages and abilities. If you are interested in reserving the space for a Group you are involved with, please get in touch with The Project Space at theprojectspacenpt@gmail.com or Marega Palsar at maregapalser@yahoo.co.uk to book on.
