Insight pop-up

Delighted to have been able to help two talented young artists exhibit their works in one of our Townscape Heritage Project shops. Blackburn University students Cai Rourke and Taylor Gallagher worked amazingly hard to transform the vacant shop at 29 Northgate into a stunning pop-up gallery 21st to 24th June.


Cai’s visually stunning and evocative work showcased fashion and imagery from the world of drag, whilst Taylor’s pieces provided an original and fascinating
insight into the world of a young woman living autism.

Taylor used interactive 3D photography gadgetry to provide an extra level of exploration for the viewer.

Their preview event complete with fine wine and nibbles was a real treat for Northgate, attracting a more than credible crowd and bringing vibrancy to the area.  The exhibition continued to attract good visitor numbers over the weekend and this injection of creativity gave us a real taste of what Northgate could be in the future.

The exhibition provided Cai and Taylor with valuable experience of organising and managing their own event and we hope in some small way will help them in the successful progression of their careers. Perhaps one day we’ll be adding another blue plaque to 29 Northgate to say ‘Gallagher and Rourke exhibited here’.

Well done guys and thank you.
