RBSA Members and Friends came down from Birmingham to see us

We were so pleased and impressed at the number of Members and Friends of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists who travelled down from Birmingham to visit us during the opening weekend of their show at the Gallery.

We much enjoyed their kindly presence and the way they were on hand to respond to interested queries and comments from viewers.

(We also liked their identification badges and are looking forward to receipt of our own, which are on order for staff and trustees!)

Two RBSA Members are in the middle of the photo here...

School students' work shown in the Gallery

These pictures were part of an exhibition of A-level work by students from Benenden School shown in Gallery 6 - our top floor studio Gallery - in 2016. We were delighted to host their show.

We are looking forward to hosting an exhibition of GCSE work from Rye College this summer.
