The pieces on display include sculptures of trees made from leaflets that banks use for marketing – a protest against cutting down trees to create the leaflets in the first place

Gallery curator Joanna Bryant said: “We are not motivated by commercial reasons and we are supported by a charitable trust.

“That enables us to show exhibitions that might not be commercially viable, but will be really interesting to people coming to visit the gallery.”

The gallery, open from 10am to 4pm, showcases work by artists in the area. Learn more at
