Atkins Gallery focuses on local art and artists

Published Friday, 24 April 2015

THE Gallery at Hinckley's Atkins Building is now under new management, with the new team focused on using the space for displaying local and regional art.

The layout and price structure of the Gallery has been revised to make it more accessible for individual artists and groups, while at the same time making it suitable for use as a performance space. 

The Gallery Cabinets are also available for exhibiting smaller scale art and craft items such as ceramics, jewellery, prints and greeting cards, while the Reception Gallery is a free space for local artists and community groups.
