Dear Friends,Thank you very much for all of your support during these very strange and often trying times. We are currently putting finishing touches together for our 2021 exhibition calendar and more updates will follow in the New Year. As you can guess, it has been quite difficult to plan during the Covid pandemic but we have successfully held two online shows and one physical show, Window Works by Sean Ellcombe, since lockdown was first announced. If you missed out in seeing Sean’s exhibition you can see a short interview and the exhibition via our website. The gallery also launched a new website and online shop which allows works to be purchased with one click of a button. You can view all current items and works for sale here.At times we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone exhibitions due to ensure that staff, visitors and artists have a safe space to work and visit. However, in 2021 we are happy to showcase ‘Narratives in Times of Absurdity’ by Norman Sutton-Hibbert in March and in April, we will exhibit The 2020 RGI Graduate Award winners (Charlotte Hayes, Megan Squire and Charlotte Elizabeth Roberts).Please note that our Gallery Coordinator will be on annual leave from the 22nd December until the 12th January 2021 and as such please be aware that all online orders, the processing and updating of memberships and responses to emails will not happen until after the 12th January.Once again, thank you to everyone for all your support over the last year and we wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and happy New Year.Gallery Coordinator & the RGI Board.
