Gliders provide a bird’s eye view for passengers

Members of a local gliding club have been unveiled as the first group to showcase their work at London Luton Airport’s Gateway Gallery after an overwhelming response from budding local artists to an annual competition, run in partnership with Luton Culture.

Adrian Hobbs, Stephen Lynn, Paul Rackham and Pete Stammell, members of the London Gilding Club, based in Dunstable, will display a series of photographs entitled ‘The Art of Powerless Flight’ from June this year. The photographs were taken over four years and capture the best of the Three Counties and further afield.

With an average of 28,000 passengers travelling through the Airport every day, the Gateway Gallery competition provides local artists from the Three Counties with a fantastic opportunity to showcase their artwork, as well as giving Airport passengers greater access to local artistic talent. Now in its seventh year, it’s estimated that 63 million passengers and Airport employees have enjoyed various exhibitions at the Gateway Gallery to date.
