Gallery Gets Royal Seal of Approval

July 2010: The Gallery at Bank Quay House which opens its doors on the 16th has already received the ‘Royal’ seal of approval.


The Royal College of General Practitioners’ has agreed to move their regional office to the newly refurbished Bank Quay House. The Royal College, which is the national certification body for Doctor GP’s, is expected to move into their new suite in July 2010.


A major reason influencing their move was the forthcoming Art gallery, which with the Bistro, opens out onto the reception area of the building.


Jane Harland, regional manager of the College commented. “We believe Bank Quay House offers the perfect ambiance for our organisation. Apart from the brand new office suite, the gallery is an excellent amenity for our staff and visitors alike. With is open spaces, changing exhibitions and Bistro area we will be using the space as a relaxation area and for informal meetings as well.’


Emma Kelly, the galleries curator, said “We are delighted that the Gallery, at a very early stage of it’s development, is already fulfilling one of it’s mayor purposes- that is to assist with the attraction of good quality businesses and organisations back into the Town Centre.


We are particularly proud that such a prestigious organisation such as The Royal College has chosen Bank Quay House as the location for it’s new base. We look forward to working with the College for many years to come.’


The inaugural exhibition links in well with the new tenants as Catherine Kleelis artworks are an open and sensitive consideration of her mother’s journey into dementia. The exhibition entitled Family Matters: Swan Song is an exhibition of paintings and original prints by the North West based artist.


Opening Night: Wednesday 16th June 6-8pm

Open Mon-Fri (9-5pm) entrance to the gallery is fully accessible and free for all. Exhibition continues till 5th July 2010.
