We decided to ‘go dark’ again for February this year, after the Winter exhibition came down, so the gallery/project space is closed until mid March when the next exhibition opens. Planning, organising, and installing exhibitions is time consuming and as this is done on a voluntary basis, going dark for a few weeks provides a well-earned break for those who do the organising, allowing time to catch up and spend time in our own studios.
It also provides an opportunity to do some essential maintenance work on the building, fill in a few more draughts, get another radiator fitted in the project space (yes, we have two now!) and hopefully, finish decorating the meeting room.
We are also planning to have a hanging system fitted in part of the project space, thanks to the generosity of everyone who bought raffle tickets at the last few private view events. This should make it a lot easier and quicker to install exhibitions but also should look a lot nicer. We hope to have this done soon – watch this space!
The next exhibition opens on 14th March – details will be sent out soon.
