Gallery News.

September 2009 marks our second year of opening as State Theta Galleries and this week the East Lothian Courier features an article on the Galleries. For distant readers, the article can also be viewed via this pdf download.
During this coming term alongside the regular timetable of classes and workshops we are hosting a special charity event and an exhibition featuring new work from the Tim Stead furniture workshop.

As a new and growing project, during the summer break our focus has been to upgrade both internal and external aspects of the Galleries. To this end the Galleries has been repointed in traditional lime, a new sign has been installed above the door and, internally, the studio now benefits from exhibition hanging rails.

The Autumn Term:

The timetable begins Monday 7th September and will run much the same as last year subject to change, dependent on numbers. We are running a 12 week term until 17th December which includes 3 weeks off. (See website for specific dates)

Our Autumn term time table can be viewed on the website but is also included here. There are spaces in all the classes and there are also special offers for new and existing students see special offers link for details.
