A noble tradition continues

The Gallery has hit the newspapers now and one kind reader sent the following interesting note:

I would like to point out that the Gallery on the Green is not the only art gallery in a building designed by Giles Gilbert Scott. Bankside Power Station, now Tate Modern, was also designed by Giles Gilbert Scott.

The Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery in Glasgow was originally in a building designed by his grandfather, Sir George Gilbert Scott, and the Guildhall Art Gallery was designed by his son, Richard Gilbert Scott.

The opening on July 11th draws closer, things are gathering pace, not least with the installation of this splendid mosaic floor designed and made by Marion. It looks just great!!

Our first piece of contributed art has arrived. A drawing by 'H.Wilson' was left anonymously in the phone box. We are not quite ready, but it's great to know that there are already artists out there waiting to exhibit!

Plans are progressing well and we hope to hold the launch event in July. We now have a splendid ceiling, reminiscent of the Sistine Chapel. We just need to finish the installation with the back board and racking, plus a rather exciting floor (watch this space...)
