EXHIBITIONS AND EVENTS

Art Gallery   ¦   Creative Community Space

Located in Colchester's Cultural Quarter, The Minories has been in the hands of the Victor Batte-Lay Foundation, since 1956. Gifted with a collection of artworks from the late Clarence Victor Batte-Lay, the Foundation and the collection have grown and adapted throughout the years to showcase a variety of works from local artists. We aim to continue embracing the creativity of the town and the communities within it.

 

FACULTY OF EVERYONE

The Faculty of Everyone is an open-access and targeted-session art school, in the spirit of the East Anglian School of Painting & Drawing that evolved from Benton End in the first half of the 20th Century. 

We are facilitating community-led and participant-designed creative projects, which use art, gardening or food, so community groups, artists, gardeners, teachers, makers - indeed, everyone - please tell us:

What kind of art would you like to see and do? 
When can you be involved? 
How can we help?
