The opening of the gallery and artist studios will take place on Thursday 9th November, 6-8pm at 4 Corney Square, Penrith.
40 local artists are making the Gallery and Studios a reality with tremendous support from local councils and businesses.
The centre will be a hub for local art, workshops, projects and funding opportunities for artists. Simon Whalley said ‘It’s exciting to have founded a network which is growing quickly and developing new artistic projects all the time.’
