Postkarte/Postcards from the Front 9 July – 3 September

This rarely seen private collection of postcards from soldiers posted at the Front during World War 1 will be supplemented by art work made by local schools and community groups, and coincides with the centenary of the Battle of the Somme.

The exhibition explores the production of postcards and how they were used as a means of communication during the war; how communication methods have changed over 100 years; and how printmaking continues to be a vehicle for sharing personal stories and insights in our visual world.

There will be a programme of drop-in workshops for families in the gallery during the summer holidays.

This project has been made possible through funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
