29 April 2013: Three galleries – Halesworth Gallery, the Little Gallery and World Land Trust gallery – are working together to put Halesworth on the cultural map during HighTide Festival (2-12 May).
The galleries offer a selection of works for sale, many of them by local artists, and all are keen to promote Halesworth as a vibrant place to visit for art and culture.
Welcoming visitors to the town
During the HighTide Festival, Halesworth will be visited by many theatre goers who are likely to be interested in art.
“During the festival there is a real opportunity for the town’s galleries to open their doors to new visitors, and to get itself better known as an arts destination,” said John Burton, CEO of World Land Trust, “World Land Trust is very pleased to be cooperating with other galleries in Halesworth, and we hope to have more collaborations in future.”
“This is the seventh year that Halesworth has hosted the HighTide Festival” says local artist Mary Gundry of The Little Gallery, “and it is an important event for the town. We are keen to ensure that visitors take the opportunity to see what Halesworth has to offer and jointly promoting our galleries at the Festival makes good sense.”
“We are delighted to collaborate with the other galleries and to welcome all visitors at the HighTide Festival to experience art in this very special space,” said Zoe Mair, chairman of Halesworth Gallery.
