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. (26 – 28 May 2018). During this weekend the annual Open Art exhibition again promises to offer excitement, variety and great quality.
