FINAL WEEKEND: We are open Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 10am to 5pm. Visit before 2pm on Sunday 9th October to enjoy the exhibition in full. A browse through the shop or the ‘browser racks’ for unframed works on paper is highly recommended if your favourite works on the walls or plinths are red-dotted! Art buyers can collect their exhibition purchases from 4pm on Sunday (remember to bring your receipt). We have two teams to assist on the closing day – on the sales desk and in the packing/collection area.
