Our Blog

Hello and Welcome

Hello everyone

Welcome to our new website.

We hope you like our new look and you can find everything you need.

We’ve created our new site ready for the launch of our Spring 2020 season which is packed with shows and events, fabulous artists and exhibitions and a whole raft of opportunities for you to beat the post-Christmas blues by paying us a visit.

Look out on this blog page for conversation and opinion pieces from the artists we work with, updates on our exciting capital development project and regular news items we have to share.

Please let us know if there are things you would like to see on here about our work or things that would interest you to hear more about.

We would love to get your feedback on our new site and you can tell us what you think by emailing us [email protected]

We would also love to keep in touch with you regularly so please sign up for our regular newsletter if you haven’t already.

Thank you for your continued support – we hope to see you soon!
