Croydon-born artist Elizabeth James is to open a contemporary art gallery in the heart of South Norwood, after winning a competition by Croydon
The new gallery will open on Wednesday 7th December and will bring an eclectic mix of art, design, gifts, homeware and workshops. At the launch from 7 ’til 9pm, there will be a raffle to help raise funds for all those affected by the recent tram crash in Croydon. All money raised will be donated to Croydon Council’s official crowdfunding page
Alongside Elizabeth’s work, the gallery will host exhibitions showcasing the best of Croydon’s young talent and will help raise their profile as upcoming artists. The gallery will also be inviting local primary and secondary schools and colleges to come along for educational visits and
workshops. There will also be Live Art Saturdays where artists can come and create art in the gallery window so the community can see their talent and working processes.
