The Art Café is situated upstairs within the Pavilion Gardens Café. It is an extension of the Gallery in the Gardens where members periodically host exhibitions, both solo and group, at two-month intervals. This enables artists to exhibit current work including large scale and other work precluded from the main gallery space downstairs.

All exhibitions are FREE and accessible from 9:30 ‘til close every day.

Currently showing during December & January

‘Folk, Fabrics and Fantasy’

Three very different artists have come together to create this quirky and colourful exhibition. Working in 3 different media, oils, textiles and pen and ink, Kate and Anne are very much inspired by the natural world whereas Emma draws upon the strange ‘unnatural’ world of her imagination.

A thread of fantasy and fable runs through the work in the exhibition which we hope will brighten up those dark winter days. Just climb the spiral staircase above the cafe in the Pavilion.
