New member, new exhibition, new work, new wall!

There is always something new to look at when I visit the Gallery, but today was exceptional. Firstly as soon as I walked in I couldn't fail to notice our new wall. A couple of our members went in on Sunday to put in a new wall which adds some more interest to the lay out of the ground floor gallery space and also to add more wall hanging space. I think it's great and has changed the whole look of the Gallery.

On Thursday our new exhibition was set up. For December we are delighted to be housing a lovely exhibition by Henrietta Ellis.Here are some examples of her textile art.

Also last week, we welcomed Vance Lupton as a full member to the Staffordshire Artists Co-operative, Vance came in originally as a guest, we are very excited about having such a talented wood turner as part of the co-operative.

and then there were also these wonderful new scarves designed by member textile artist Jo Hill
