'The Gallery' .....will be a place where artists can not only view & purchase original works of art & fine art cards from the regualry changing exhibitions, but will also be able to join in and try, the many classes, demonstrations and talks, as well as browsing the library of well stocked books to read and or discuss, in a relaxing atmosphere over a cup of tea. . 

'The Gallery Club'.....will be open on Friday afternoons with opportunities for members to try out still life's, portraits and figure work amongst other subjects. - Volunteer models are both welcome & needed, you never know, you may get your portrait painted by a professional.
