The Townsend Gallery

On Wednesday we celebrated the opening of our very own Art Gallery in school!

That’s right, an Art Gallery!

It was a very special occasion and we welcomed our friends from The Belle Vue Arts festival, Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery, Shropshire Arts Society, Mrs Jones Gallery, Bloom and Shrewsbury Town Council.

Of course every great gallery needs a name!  The Townsend Art Gallery is named after Judy Townsend, former Belle Vue resident and founder of The Belle Vue Arts Festival.  Judy Townsend represented everything that is great about our school; Care, Creativity and Community.  She brought the arts to our community with great passion and inspired so many children and their families. Everyone at Coleham, staff and pupils, look forward to getting involved with the festival each year.

We hope our gallery inspires our children and staff to appreciate “We are all Artists”  We are already planning exhibitions for the coming year!
