This weekend is our first birthday! Along with our friends at Workshop, we've managed to stick around for a whole year! We didn't expect it, but we are so glad to be still going strong. This Saturday come and help us celebrate with a garage sale from 11am. Also, if you have a trestle you could lend us for the day, we'd love you forever!
We'd like to buy the reading room some birthday presents - new lights, wifi, a nice secure floodproof door. We have a little money put aside, but if you could help us out, please donate via our Pozible page
Currently exhibiting at the reading room is a beautiful photographic exhibition by Natasha Lee. Natasha's work focusses on Human Rights, in particular gender equality and the rights of women in Turkey. The exhibition has been extended to the 7th July, so please come down and take a look. There are still some beautiful pieces for sale.
Our exhibition calendar is filling up with shows booked in from July to December. If you are interested in exhibiting or know someone who could be, please get in touch.
