Thank you

We're delighted to have received such a huge amount of submissions and would like to thank everyone for applying and supporting the exhibition so enthusiastically. The quality of artwork is outstanding and it's fantastic to have such a variety of artists exhibiting at one time.

Special thanks goes to...

The Ashcroft Arts Centre operations staff for meticulously installing the exhibition, as we have received wonderful feedback on the exhibition both online and in the centre when we were able to be in venue...

Our resident artist at West End Centre, Stephen Critchley, for installing the exhibition in-centre, and for taking high-quality images of the artwork so they could be displayed online...

And Keith, our volunteer exhibition curator at Forest Arts Centre, for endless hours photographing and editing the pictures for the exhibition.

You can still browse the online exhibition until we are able to re-open our venues. View the full exhibition here or click the link below.
