Exciting Photography Exhibition Charts Our Lockdown Photography Competition

Exciting photography exhibition charts our lockdown Photography Competition

We are delighted to hold an exhibtion in partnership with Tim Scrace this July. The exhibition is free to attend during gallery hours and will run from Saturday 2nd - 9th July (PV on Friday 1st July) at The Vanner Gallery, a new Salisbury contemporary art venue.

thoughts, words and dreams chart our journey through lockdown, combining both THIS TOO WILL PASS, a sculpture by Tim Scrace, and THIS IS MY HOPE, a photography competition by Alabaré during lockdown.

Drawing on the collective consciousness experienced by recent events. The fusion of these two projects promises to offer a compelling reflection on our times and an opportunity to look forward to better.

thoughts words and dreams by Tim Scrace

‍THIS TOO WILL PASS by Tim Scrace, was installed in the High Street in Salisbury in May 2021. The installation was in three parts and encouraged people to move between the inter-related parts inviting them to stop and reflect on their past, present and future. Over the two months of installation, the sculpture was seen by over 90,000 people and gained over 3,000 interactions.

Alabaré ran THIS IS MY HOPE as a national photography competition during lockdown, asking people to convey what their sense of hope was, for their life, community, and our world. For some it was their appreciation for our beautiful world, be it a magical place they were looking forward to seeing once more, or beautiful people they were unable to see.

Rebecca Mullen, Fundraising & Development Manager says, “We launched the photo competition at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, never anticipating just how much as the year draws to a close it would still be impacting our lives. The natural world featured heavily and maybe there is something about a beautiful view to help us get a sense that this too will pass."

Please support the event by visiting The Vanner Gallery during opening hours over the course of the week and spread the word by sharing with friends. It is a terrific way to look forwards with positivity and hope.
