A FINAL exhibit was held at Ragley Gallery and Studios to celebrate its time located in the Ragley Estate before the studio moves to a new venue.

The event entitled, Small Objects of Desire, was held from November 29 to November 30 and attracted hundreds of visitors to search for the perfect Christmas present.

More than 400 people flocked to the free exhibit where works by 17 different artists were showcased, with many pieces available to purchase.

Dawn Harris, Ragley Gallery and Studios director, said: “We had lots of visitors all very supportive of the gallery and studios.

“We had lots of sales during the weekend and lots of praise for the variety and quality of work made by local artists.

“All who took part and those who visited feel it will be a sad loss to our community so I hope to begin something similar in a different location as soon as possible.”

“Our visitors, an excess of 400 for this event alone, not to mention all of the others that have visited over the last two years and a large number of local artists that we have been able offer varying opportunities too, approaching 100 in total, are really interested as am I to see where we can build a more permanent artist community in the future. “

“The event went very well and we managed to end our stay at Ragley on a real high.”

Dawn will continue to look for new premises whilst studying for her masters in fine art at the University of Gloucestershire.
