We start the install tomorrow – don’t miss the private view this Thursday 6-8pm and then the performance art event at Korova Arts Cafe in Preston on Saturday from 3pm.

After the success of last years’ Open exhibition, we were keen to hold another. Oxheys Mill Studios have kindly agreed to host in their fabulous Project Space again but we have also arranged with the new Korova Arts Cafe in Preston for some additional exhibition space.
