We opened our free admission 2017 art exhibition to the public on Friday 16th June at the fabulous Market Cross Gallery. Our members have done some stunning work so thank you to them and we’d like to welcome everyone who came and met us. Special thanks to Council and APEX staff and all the unnamed but much appreciated supporters from everywhere who helped our committee get this exhibition on the road in just over three weeks. Julia Wakelam officially opened the exhibition on Saturday 17th June at midday and awarded a range of four prizes for best in their class.
