The latest artwork to be displayed in the Front Room is brought to you by Stephen Ormerod. His work showcases the industrial heritage of Burnley.
If you're interested in displaying your artwork in either the Front Room or Lounge Bar, get in touch! The space is available to local artists to exhibit their work, and there is still availability throughout 2017. It's free to have an exhibition but there is a (very reasonable) commission on any sales. Around 70,000 people came through the building in the past year with our busy Bistro and sell out shows so it's great exposure for the artwork.
If you would like to find out more please email Rachel Hawthorn at rhawthorn@burnley.gov.uk
