Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast, provides a welcoming space for the public to engage with contemporary visual art, and has grown steadily since it was founded in 1998. The gallery was initially conceived as an artists’ project, located in a former linen mill on a contested ‘peace line’ in North Belfast. In 2007 the gallery moved to its current premises on Great Patrick Street, at the edge of the Cathedral Quarter. Over the years they have developed a reputation for delivering an innovative and exciting exhibition programme that combines the interests of the local with the international.
Golden Thread Gallery’s aims to increase public access to the contemporary visual arts through exhibitions and participatory projects and supports the development of contemporary Northern Irish art and artists. Since its inception, Golden Thread Gallery has worked with many major artists and to date has realised over 150 exhibitions in Belfast alongside touring exhibitions worldwide, representing the North of Ireland as far afield as China, the USA and across Europe. Most recently, the gallery co-produced Voices Travel, a group exhibition of Northern Irish and Taiwanese artists in Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
Golden Thread Gallery offers a welcoming space to experience visual art of our time. If you have never visited the space, it’s a must, for all art lovers. For further information visit www.goldenthreadgallery.co.uk , or why not join them on Facebook or Twitter; they love new friends.
