“We are glad to host the exhibition and let others see the amazing skills of a whole range of people from our local community. This artwork has been completed by all ages and individuals and has been a lovely welcoming group to anyone who has walked through the door. This will be our last large event before we close the building for our renovations and our exciting new build that’s coming in 2024. We look forward to seeing everyone.”
