Crossing Lines: Highlanes Gallery & FE McWilliam Gallery & Studio
Crossing Lines: Highlanes Gallery & FE McWilliam Gallery & StudioCrossing Lines is presented by Highlanes Gallery & FE McWilliam Gallery & Studio, Banbridge. The exhibition considers the current global climate, where increasing political and social turmoil have provoked public protest and campaigning on issues including gender, race, sexuality, class, religion and the environment. Closer to home, the polarised debate on Brexit has mobilised people to take to the streets, and to social media, in an effort to have their voices heard. The exhibition includes new and recent work from Arts Council Collection, Southbank Centre, London, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland Gifted Collection (2012), National Museums, Northern Ireland, and artists’ studios.

The opening of these cross-border exhibitions was marked by a special live performance by Nigel Rolfe at Highlanes Gallery on Friday 23 November at 7.30pm, and at FE McWilliam Gallery & Studio on Saturday 24 November at 3.00pm

Creative Space for those living with Alzheimer's and Dementia
Creative Space for those living with AlzheimerIn September 2015, Highlanes Gallery announced the launch of a pilot programme developed especially for people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

After the initial programme, the gallery has continued these sessions which focus on a few selected works from the temporary exhibition programme and the Drogheda Municipal Art Collection. Through the programme people have an opportunity to look at art more closely, in a caring, friendly and social environment, discussing the pieces and giving their opinions in a non-judgemental setting.

Dementia-related diseases affect roughly 48,000 people in Ireland, leaves those living with it feeling isolated and often frustrated. By providing a friendly and inclusive environment in which people can freely participate in active discussion Highlanes Gallery hopes to allow participants, and their carers feel like a more active and visible part of the community.

This programme had been run initially for people attending the Drogheda & South Louth Day Care Centre but over the last number of years in continuing the programme the gallery has also included others from Talbot Group Links and directly from carers and others interested in the programme.
