At last – after what seems like a very long time we opened the new gallery and shop on Friday 19th July 2013 for the first day of the Whithorn Arts & Crafts Trail. The Trail was the first yearly event to celebrate creativity in and around Whithorn and this gallery opened just in time (we were still painting the floor at 11pm on the Thursday night)!
It was great to open for the Trail as we had lots of visitors from the local area coming to see us for the first time as well as visitors from much further afield. The Trail was a great success for local arts and crafts people who had an opportunity to show their work and provide some demonstrations.
We are working on a video of images showing the transformation from an ironmongers shop to a gallery but for now we include some photos of the gallery as it was for our very 1st exhibition…
If you want to keep up with all our upcoming exhibitions please complete the brief form at the bottom of the page and we will send an email whenever we change the exhibition (currenly planning 5 per year so we will not bombard you with emails).
