The exhibition will run from Thursday 16 - Saturday 18 June 2022, with an opportunity for children from Coleham Primary School to view the exhibition on Monday 20 June
The theme for this year's Festival is "JOURNEYS", although this does NOT have to be reflected in your artwork
This year's exhibition is smaller than in previous years, however we aim to have maximum publicity and appeal for the community

Please bring your work to the Centre between 09.00 and 10.00 on Wednesday 15 June (entrance on the right side of the building)
