Art appreciation

35 separate art works including photographs, watercolours, oil on canvas, and pencil sketches now decorate the library from the ground  to first floor. Visitors to yesterday’s Staff Library Art 2 exhibition were most impressed by the high standard and variety of work created by colleagues, finding it ‘stunning’ and ‘inspirational’.

The exhibition will continue until the end of April and is well worth a visit.
