Although the usual Snowdrops Exhibition has had to be cancelled, we will be displaying a small selection of Snowdrops artwork in the Gallery windows from 1st February.   We hope this may brighten your day as you pass by, or even inspire you for next year!

We will reopen the Gallery as soon as we are able but in the mean time keep watching the windows. There will be changing displays of artworks from the planned exhibitions whilst we are closed.
