A amazing and impactful collection of contemporary artist work. The variety and quality make this exhibition a "must see". It is rare to be able to see a collection of paintings like this together. Don't miss - on from now till March 2015

Very good art club. Alternate weeks for each of the two age groups. Lovely breadth of media. It's painting, then film, then textiles etc. Artists visit to talk to the children sometimes too.
