The photographs & presentation created poignant & thought provoking responses. The exhibition will now be on show in various venues and watch this website for details of their project next year.

Outside 3rd - 15th September

A small exhibition of images by local photographer/artist Keith Wright. The eerie, abstract results were all created using photographic and digital technology taking inspiration from winter visits to local nature reserve – Forbes Hole, Long Eaton.

Green & Organic '08 3rd September - 13th September

This year's Green & Organic eco extravaganza was a green frenzy! Our opening night & fashion show was a foray of green love & we managed to raise over £150 for Music4Children a charity helping to build sustainable orphanages for street children in Nepal. BBC's Penney Poyzer stepped in to host the fashion show, she is also the patron of Music4Children.

The night saw fashions from Oxfam, Kathleen & lily's, The fancy Pants Parade, Savvy Style, Rhea Clements, Fresh Cargo & Hanna Randall! 28 hairstylists kindly did the hair for us, whilst Clare Gregory did the make up - thank you!

Thanks to the wonderful food suppliers - Dotty's Cafe on Mansfield Road & The Screaming Carrot on Foxhall road, AND not forgetting the wonderful goodie bags from the Green Box Shop!!

Fresh 08 23rd July - 30th August

An open exhibition featuring some of the best art and design work from the Midlands! The 6 winners (as voted by you and a select panel) will be given another opportunity in the gallery next year in the form of a smaller group exhibition of their latest work!

The opening night was a hot affair, literally, with plenty of smoothies & wine gulped down! The exhibition looks great, and the talent this year has really showed, especially in the comments made by visitors! We hope to continue this opportunity to create a platform for emerging artistic talents in the Midlands.
