Croydon has launched a new town-centre gallery space with an exhibition of international photography.
Croydon Clocktower in Katharine Street is hosting the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) – Visual Art Members Exhibition until 11 March.
The event, supported by the Museum of Croydon, represents the launch of this space as a new public gallery as it is the first exhibition to be held there, with more planned throughout the year.
Around 100 prints from more than 90 artists will be displayed over the next three weeks – and although the RPS has international membership, several of the artists are local to Croydon.
“This new exhibition space, right in front of the Museum of Croydon at Croydon Clocktower, is in an ideal location in the centre of town. We look forward to welcoming many more similar events throughout the year. Croydon is evolving, with its arts and cultural offer growing rapidly, and with the £30m investment in Fairfield Halls under way and plans for a 2,000 sq m art gallery; brand new college; and 200 new homes formally approved last week, the future is bright.”
Councillor Timothy Godfrey, cabinet member for culture, leisure and sport
