The artworks on exhibition until 10 September depict nature providing a life giving environment.
There is also a second exhibition by the centres revitalised Print Making Group which has a display of the culmination of 12 month’s printmaking.
The group has explored many techniques of lino cutting, etching and multi plate printmaking and plan to explore collagraph and mono prints in the future.
This will involve experimenting with different inks and qualities of paper, sometimes with the printing press and with recycled objects.
The group meets on the second and fourth Thursdays in the Manoora Room at 10am.
