"Colours": A Photography Exhibition and Week of Activities about Emotional Wellbeing

The Red Gate Gallery is delighted to announce a week-long programme of FREE activities led by photographer Martin Edwards from 20th- 26th March 2009. The aim of this programme is to celebrate photography and promote emotional wellbeing.
Responding to the death of his sister from cancer at the age of 43, the work of London-based photographer Martin Edwards explores grieving and loss – and ultimately, the celebration of life.
The exhibition features six large-scale montages, based on the primary colours of the colour wheel. It has been designed especially for the Red Gate Gallery and is Martin’s first solo exhibition.

Private View: Friday 20th of March from 6 pm – 11pm
Talk by Samaritans on Emotional Wellbeing: Friday 20th of March at 7.30pm
Artist’s Talk and Preview of Future Work: Saturday 21st of March at 5pm
Open Day for Beginners and Students of all Ages: Thursday 26th of March from 2pm to 5pm
Exhibition runs from: 20th of March to 26th of March inclusive
Gallery Opening Hours: Fri, Sat, Mon to Wed: 2.30 pm – 6.30 pm
Last day of exhibition Thursday 26th of March: Open from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm

The programme of activities features:
• An exhibition of new work by photographer Martin Edwards
• A talk by the Samaritans on emotional health and their work
• An interview with the photographer on the exhibition and his future projects, which include his exhibition ‘Made-Up’ (showing at Red Gate Gallery from 3rd- 9th July 2009)
• An Open Day for beginners and students of all ages for photography
Says Martin: “Many people face feelings of intense grief and difficulty when coming to terms with a deeply personal event in their life – such as the loss of a loved one or coping with despair. “Colours” is my own story of responding to loss and ultimately to celebrate life”.
