The first exhibition of 2017 has welcomed a regional group of members of the International Feltmakers Association who have created work to the theme of “Glow” – bringing warmth to this winter exhibition which will end on 13 March 2017. They are exhibiting alongside a host of exhibitors including Kim Colebrook who is showing her porcelain vessels in the gallery for the first time.
For more information please view the news page for regular updates, information on exhibiting artists and more images.
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 addition to this a program of off-site exhibitions has become popular. The gallery hosts those at local venues and at the CRiC Studio which is a popular space in Beaufort Street which can also be hired as an exhibition space.

Applications to exhibit in the gallery are welcomed by the curating committee.
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. (27 – 29 May 2017).
