Open from Tuesday 20 October 2020 - Saturday 9 January 2021
A groundbreaking exhibition at Salisbury Arts Centre will bring together artists and makers of African/Caribbean heritage to showcase their work, not previously seen in Salisbury. This exhibition was originally cancelled due to the Covid lockdown and we are very happy to be able to realise it now.
Running from Tuesday 20 October to Salisbury Arts Centre Christmas closure, Diaspora is an exceptional opportunity to appreciate and collect work by artists who bring fresh viewpoints to contemporary arts practice.
In relation to art, the term 'Diaspora' has been used to discuss artists who have migrated from one part of the world to another and who express their diverse experience of culture and identity in their work; often expressing alternative narratives, challenging ideas and structures of the art world.

Our gallery shop is re-stocked for Autumn with an exciting variety of greeting cards all created by locally based artists including Debra Sweeney, Francesca Mclean, Tom Mazur, Richard Paul, Mel Evans and Lucinda Nicholasto.
Presenting the creativity of people with a direct connection to Wiltshire Creative, we have new art prints made by Jac Kingsley, ceramic jewellery by Eli Eisenhauer and Daniela Hauser and stoneware ceramic made by Bridget Timoney and porcelain by Mirka Golden-Hann.
