It now seems very unlikely that our After the Coal Dust exhibition at the HIP Gallery, Hull will take place at all.
We have been unable to get a reply or acknowledgement from them despite attempting to contact them several times. Their 2019 programme is full apparently and if we can’t even get a response from them there doesn’t seem to be any prospect of the exhibition going ahead in 2020 either.
Disappointing in some ways but I don’t see how we can take this forward as over the past month or so we have emailed the curator three times, FB messaged twice, emailed the gallery itself all without any reply. A phone call promising a call back never materialised either.
This lack of communication has been in complete contrast to the other galleries we have dealt with and under these circumstances, we don’t now feel we would be able to work with them.
Apologies to all those who had hoped to see us in Hull but there’ll be other places 🙂
John & Bridget.
