December 2014 News

Well its been nearly a year that we set up the ARTBOXuk in Whitton. I cannot believe that it has been that long already. I would like to say a big thank-you to all the artists that have showcased this year in the gallery,and a really bigger one to those artists who have given their time to help in some form or other be it looking after the gallery ,window displays or running workshops. Then a huge thank-you to Terry for his support and accepting the 12 hour shifts I spend at the workshops.Without us as a team we wouldn't be so successful.
