A word about the Storm Photp Exhibition: the photos were beautiful. Thanks to Tim, Bridget, Cate, Marcia and thanks to Syra for curating. Syra also put it up on the Creative Way facebook page and had 2000 likes. Maybe next year we’ll have even more participation. This will be an on-going event!
Now that the picture rails are up, if there is an artist or photographer that would like to have a show, they can contact Marcia at 0871693493 for more info. Great place for an exhibition, parking available, tea and coffee making facilities, tables and chairs for a cosy café/gallery effect.
