We ask one of our friendly robins to wish all friends and visitors
a very happy Christmas and our best wishes for the New Year.
It is has been a busy year and we thank you for your support and interest. We have lots of exciting exhibitions and events planned for 2015 and remind you to keep right up todate with what is happening subscribe to our monthly email NEWS by clicking here.
Our opening times over the holiday period - close 4pm Christmas Eve and open again as usual at 9am on Friday 2 January
Always a popular exhibition at this time of the year with work by selected artists including our Studio Artists. Two and three dimensional work is on show, with paintings, prints, textiles and jewellery. For this exhibition work can be sold and collected in advance of the exhibition finish. The exhibition concludes Sunday 25 January 2015.
In the Crew Yard Gallery we have THE art OF CHRISTMAS which continues until 24 December. As usual this popular treat has a focus on the unusual and the inspirational, this year we include and exhibition of work from the Midlands Potters Association.
In the Image Gallery it is now the turn of Jonathan Horrocks with an exhibition called 'Black and Light'. Most of Jonathan's landscape photography is produced in colour, but this exhibition has a focus on his black and white work. Without colour the role of composition becomes greater, which as you will see, is something at which Jonathan excels. The exhibition continues until 2nd November.
We are pleased to announce the launch of the Open Art Competition 2015 organised in partnership with The Artist and Leisure Painter magazines. Full entry details, information on prizes and awards along with details of the exhibition can be found in the current editions of both magazines and on our websites.
