the ART PREVIEW 1st April 2022
6.30pm to 8pm
The Birley Studios
Town Hall Annexe

The Art Preview has many relationships and power dynamics. In some ways it is more important than the artwork on exhibition. It is the latest exhibition by award winning Morecambe based artist Anthony Padgett. The exhibition will unfold during the preview as instant photographs are taken and exhibited on the wall. The exhibition will be on view for the duration of the preview.
Lancaster Arts City logo
New on the Lancaster Arts City website is a noticeboard for opportunities - it's a place for posting any commissions, volunteering, networking opportunities etc. But it's also suitable for posting jobs and professional development opportunities. Take a look. Please send Johnny Bean any opportunities you may have and he'll endeavour to get them up there and promoted.
