A daily visit to the Gallery site is not sufficient to keep on top of progress on the restoration!

This autumn we face the prospect of moving back in to the Gallery, understanding the new systems in place, developing management procedures, checking the environment, training volunteers and staff, and bringing in the collection.This autumn we face the prospect of moving back in to the Gallery, understanding the new systems in place, developing management procedures, checking the environment, training volunteers and staff, and bringing in the collection.

We have been so grateful to all our donors, Friends and supporters for bringing us this far. It was delightful to hear from Timothy West and Prunella Scales, who visited the Gallery for a hard hat tour yesterday, that they were delighted to see the building unchanged yet restored with love. It is challenging to think that while the Gallery is closed we are so busy planning the private view of our artist in residence Sheila Wallis, a major event at Goldsmiths' in London to thank our benefactors and an exhibition being shown in November in London of work from the Big Issues' Project from women prisoners, young offenders and reformed drug users. Soon our Gallery without Walls programme will be infused in to a Gallery with walls, which will welcome you all and celebrate your generosity and patience.
