One Small Step – Environmentally themed Open Exhibition

We all need to support each other on our climate action journey, and to help us with ideas the Pannett Art Gallery is encouraging people to make artworks that illustrate one small step we can take to improve the environment. These could be paintings, collage, embroidery, poetry, photography ….whatever medium you choose.  The exhibition is open to everyone and is free to enter.  The gallery will try to include all the artworks submitted as long as they promote One Small Step to reduce climate change.

Artworks should be A4 or A3 and need to be delivered to the gallery by 7th August.

You can find further details in the NEWS section on the Pannett Art Gallery website
