Joanne Risley shares her out of this world work with children and families in the Kingsmead Sculpture Park

The Cave Gallery's first show 'Hunker' was Easter 2021 and in Summer the Northwich Education Partnership Art Trail Belonging featured in The Cave.

We are delighted to welcome sculptor Joanne Risley MA, MAFA, to exhibit her work on our school grounds. Joanne has sited two large works, Astropod and Space Flower on the meadow area in front of the school hall.

Children at Kingsmead have been invited, with students and pupils across the local area, to contribute their work to an online gallery to share their work, The Cave. As a website based platform, this is safe for the youngest children to share their work alongside older students. The difference between The Cave and schools' and colleges' art lessons and clubs is that while suggestions and ideas are offered, young people are invited to submit work in any media, of their choice. The first exhibition, Easter 2021, is called Hunker and invites responses to our very different experiences of hunkering down over lockdown.
