In collaboration with Pipeline Gallery, The Wilson Art Gallery and Museum is proud to present the works of 5 artists originally hailing from Gloucestershire. Pipeline gallery invited these 5 artists, now working across the UK, to come back to Cheltenham and see if the town is really the same as when they left.
The way we left it touches on the changing arts scene in Cheltenham and looks to investigate how we build better communities for creatives in places like Gloucestershire. With a series of interactive displays alongside contemporary works, the viewer is invited to have their say, share their stories, and connect with the work.
Pipeline Gallery is on a mission to present challenging works of contemporary art and build an arts scene that support and nourishes local creative talent. Working with students, graduates and emerging artists The Way We left it is part of a wider programme of works creating opportunities for local people and investigating how we build better communities for artists.
