Crossing Lines: Highlanes Gallery & FE McWilliam Gallery & Studio Present..opening 23 NovemberHighlanes Gallery, Drogheda and the FE McWilliam Gallery & Studio, Banbridge, present a joint exhibition entitled Crossing Lines, which will run concurrently in both galleries from 23 November 2018 to 26 January 2019. The exhibition explores ideas of dissent, dissonance, and difference in art and society; embracing change, inspiring hope, and the important role that art and artists have in challenging traditional thinking, provoking reflection, insight and fostering new ideas that often defy the norm.

The opening of these cross-border exhibitions will be marked by a special live performance by Nigel Rolfe at Highlanes Gallery on Friday 23 November at 7.30pm, and at FE McWilliam Gallery & Studio on Saturday 24 November at 3.00pm

The politics of fear
The moves to isolation
Stopping migration of threatened
peoples to safer territory
Maintaining the pure race
Capital seeking to over shadow the social
Haves before have-nots
Barriers and barricades
Walls and fences
Ins and outs
Greed ignoring violences past
At any cost
To put the great back into
The wish to be bigger than

Creative Space for those living with Alzheimer's and Dementia
Creative Space for those living with AlzheimerIn September 2015, Highlanes Gallery announced the launch of a pilot programme developed especially for people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

After the initial programme, the gallery has continued these sessions which focus on a few selected works from the temporary exhibition programme and the Drogheda Municipal Art Collection. Through the programme people have an opportunity to look at art more closely, in a caring, friendly and social environment, discussing the pieces and giving their opinions in a non-judgemental setting.

Dementia-related diseases affect roughly 48,000 people in Ireland, leaves those living with it feeling isolated and often frustrated. By providing a friendly and inclusive environment in which people can freely participate in active discussion Highlanes Gallery hopes to allow participants, and their carers feel like a more active and visible part of the community.

This programme had been run initially for people attending the Drogheda & South Louth Day Care Centre but over the last number of years in continuing the programme the gallery has also included others from Talbot Group Links and directly from carers and others interested in the programme.
