Action! Private View on Thursday 13th February

It was more of a celebration than a Private View really; at last we had a new exhibition of paintings in the art gallery and those attending were obviously very pleased that Swindon's Museum and Art Gallery is moving forward and ready to encourage as wide an audience as possible.
The Friends supplied the refreshments, Helen Miah and Sophie Cummings both gave speeches, and the event was as friendly as I've ever known such an event.
Have a look at a few photos:
 Above Helen Miah talking about the exhibition
 A few familiar faces above, and Sophie talking about the challenges of taking down the last exhibition, getting the gallery painted and this exhibition put up.
 Below there's David Renard on the right and Erik Burnett-Godfree behind him.
Attendance at the event was by invitation, or by virtue of being a Friend.
Do try and go to see the exhibition, it's open Weds-Sat inclusive from 11am-3pm
