September Newsletter

We have been experiencing the Back to School chaos as term starts in the wider college and our studios feel busier now the tenants, artists and customers are back from their holidays. But September has always been an extra exciting time for the West Studios Gallery.

September means the beginning of our Annual Open Exhibition! This is our 5th year and again the participating artists have not disappointed us.

Running until Friday 27th September, the exhibition is open Monday - Fridays 10am-4pm and Saturdays 10am-1pm. This week, we will also be uploading the gallery onto the website and will be able to sell pieces through enquiries via the website. This means you definitely won’t miss out on that perfect piece by one of our artists!

See below our up coming exhibitions in West Studios!!
