The spring 2017 art exhibition is now open in the Chapel Gallery at the Framework Knitters Museum. The exhibition – the museum’s fifth in total and fourth in partnership with the Nottingham Society of Artists – features work by three popular local artists. These are Doreen Hunt, Richard Simkins and 94 year old World War II veteran and inventor of the ‘Nottingham Chair’, Nigel Corlett.
Having opened on Saturday 4th March, the exhibition will run until Saturday 27th May, taking in the Easter school holidays and benefiting from Sunday opening days at the museum, which start on Easter Sunday.
Nigel Boughton-Smith from the Nottingham Society of Artists, commented: ‘Nottinghamshire has some amazingly talented people and it’s extremely rewarding to get them in the public eye, in such a unique location. The three artists currently exhibiting in the Chapel Gallery represent a range of different styles from some of the county’s best-known artists.’
The Chapel Gallery is open Wednesday to Saturday, 11am to 4:30pm and, from Easter Sunday, also on Sundays from 1:30pm to 4:30pm. Last admission is at 4pm. Entrance to the gallery is free, whilst normal admission fees apply to the museum. The museum shop and café are open to all visitors as well as the public, to purchase refreshments and souvenirs.
