We’re hosting our first ever open exhibition from 1 – 15 October 2022! Whether you’re a seasoned or amateur artist, we want you to try your hand at creating something unique, maybe even slightly quirky for our Thinking Out the Box theme. That’s all we’ll say on the matter, except that works must measure 40cm x 40cm. The rest is up to you!  

We will host an opening event on Saturday 1 October at 18:00.
