the reading room :: e-newsletter issue 28

Hi all,

Our fundraising campaign is going well so far, but we still have along way to go. Your help will go directly to improve the reading room's lighting for reading and for exhibitions and hopefully make it a wireless hotspot. We'd love it if you could spread the word amongst your networks and friends. (

The t-shirt exhibition, Very Handsome, is still up for one more week, with a few t-shirts still available. Come on down and support these four young artists

Our exhibition calendar is filling up with shows booked in for June (Natasha Lee, see below), July (more info soon) and August (Meg Cowell - more info soon). If you are interested in exhibiting or know someone who could be, then get in touch.

For the most up-to-date info check the blog, or the facebook group, or join the mailing list! Email with 'subscribe' in the subject line. Oh and we tweet now.
