The new Arts Centre Gallery in Shaftesbury is a really lovely space and I was very pleased to be asked to exhibit there. As an artist it is not a taken that a gallery with a good 'pedigree' also has a fabulous space to support the work. Kate Pickard ( and others ) have worked really hard, I mean really hard, as volunteers, to provide Shaftesbury with a first rate space. I hope they are able to find work of a first rate order to show, and thus earn a reputation of real quality. Democracy and Elitism .... where is the balance, and I vote for both!
