Art Exchange is temporarily closing
Following recent government guidelines, we are closing our doors for a few weeks, from 5 November to 2 December.
We will however, continue to bring you all our exhibitions, talks and art classes on-line. We know how important the positivity the Arts bring is to you, so we are going to keep finding ways to stay in touch and make things happen.
You can find our current exhibitions online via this website, with recordings of our latest talks available too. And you can join in our art classes on Instagram Live. Head over to our activity pages to find out more.
We look forward to opening the gallery for you again soon.
