Our first Exhibitions in the new space were by two of our long serving members Pat Carter and Melva Waterman. " Who's Hilary", a retrospective exhibition of arts, crafts, dress design, millinery, quilting, beading and exquisite hand stitching.
"Celebrating Melva", showcasing some of Melva's recent work with a few old treasures included.
We don't know how we would have hosted this in our previous gallery because the exhibitions takes up one large space and at the opening of Pat's exhibition we easily accommodated over 80 people to view the fashion parade.
Many people made special visits to the gallery to celebrate the work of these two icons.
Everyone commented on the light open space and we have had a few people express interest in joining so the future looks promising.
A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed towards bringing this gallery space to life.
Everyone is now looking forward to having time to play, learn, socialise and make artworks.
