This exhibition will feature the work of 40 artists from the group to coincide with the 40th Anniversary of Quay Arts this year.

All are welcome to come along to the exhibition opening on Saturday 30th July, 3 – 5pm and meet some of the artists involved. Gallery talks and tours by artists from the group will take place throughout the summer; as well as a ‘response’ exhibition in the Clayden Gallery by students from Atkinson House and The Foyer, opening on 20th Aug running until 15th Oct. More information will be available soon via the Quay Arts website.


All works are for sale in the exhibition with proceeds supporting the artists, CBP and Quay Arts.
