Ards Arts Centre To Reopen

Ards Arts Centre is set to reopen its doors to visitors on Monday 28 September. The building has been closed to the public since mid-March due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Both of the Arts Centre’s galleries will be open for socially distanced visits, featuring exhibitions that originally opened in March before lockdown. ‘Under The Phoenix Eye’ by Raquel Amat Parra will be showing in The Georgian Gallery and ‘All Daughters’ by Sharon Canning will be on display in The Sunburst Gallery.

There will be plenty of opportunity for hands-on art and craft activity too with the commencement of the Autumn Creative Class Programme on Monday 12 October. The six-week programme will include drawing, painting, floral art, jewellery-making and lots more. The classes are currently open for enrolment via this website.
