    Spring Exhibition 2020

The gallery has an active social media presence and regularly posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

To support, exhibit and promote original and inspiring contemporary art and craft, the gallery presents a changing programme of 6 exhibitions per year by local and visiting artists and designer makers. 

In keeping with its aim of promoting, celebrating and encouraging participation in the visual arts, the gallery has initiated an art trail of open studios and galleries which runs annually during the Spring Bank Holiday weekend. (29 - 31  May 2021)  During this weekend the annual Open Art exhibition again promises to offer excitement, variety and great quality.
