Museums and Galleries - Focal Point Gallery
Focal Point Gallery specialises in contemporary visual art, promoting and commissioning ambitious solo exhibitions, group shows, thematic projects and a programme of public events including performances, film screenings and talks.
The gallery currently produces up to seven solo exhibitions each year, as well as working on a residency programme and a variety of offsite projects. Artists are given a platform to make new work in response to the gallery's unique space on the ground floor of the town's central learning facility 'The Forum'.
The exhibitions, events and education programmes are currently being developed to include a series of activities that will host a diverse range of local and international artists, curators and writers and establish on-going collaborations with local and international arts organisations as well as engaging with a wide range of local community groups.
