The weather may have taken a turn for the worst and made today’s tasks a little wetter but volunteers at the gallery are powering through! Preparations for our upcoming Open Show are gradually coming along with several more submissions in the post today to take a look at – next weekend sees a big meeting to organise and select which works will make the show; should be pretty exciting! But for today we’ll have to settle for snatching surreptitious peeks at the Wimbledon semi-finals between opening envelopes and tapping away at the computer…

Annexinema are busy above us setting up for their second event here at the gallery, ‘Writing’, with a selection of films ranging from the amusing to the experimental. Definitely work a look for the modest £3 entry fee. With the contents of the bar having already arrived and many a plinth having been sourced from around the gallery for various purposes it looks like things are coming together well in time for opening tonight at eight.

The opening night of Tom Lovelace’s exhibition ‘The Cut’ went off with a bang last night with a great turn out. Tom’s show is a particularly interesting one as he was actually the winner of our Open Show 2008 over twenty-three other exhibiting artists – well done Tom! If you missed the private view last night, swing by the gallery before the 16th and take a look at these haunting industrial landscapes…
