This is Alton's pretty Allen Gallery which is unfortunately threatened with closure. It really is a lovely place and at the moment has an exhibition by my fabulous friend Jackie Bicknell. Do go and check it out, you can even have a coffee and cake there, or wander around their garden.
Jackie is a multi-talented hive of energy, always busy creating new things, entertaining friends, offering tea, visiting interesting places, working, or doing all of these at once! She is passionate about her work and that of other artists and makers and uses a variety of techniques in her own work including sewing, Photoshop and collage.
