changing exhibitions artwork

We have been hosting exhibitions of work by professional and amateur artists in our Changing Exhibitions Gallery in the Lounge Bar at Burnley Mechanics since 2014.  Work is often for sale and creates a great talking point for visitors and diners in the Bistro.  Burnley artists have shown their work as well as established artists from further afield.  We have also hosted exhibitions highlighting the heritage the arts in Burnley.

If you would like to apply to show your work in the Gallery please send some information and images of your work to Rachel Hawthorn at rhawthorn@burnley.gov.uk
