There's a sneaky rumour that Art in the Heart is going national. I'm told every day by visitors to our city, hunters of originality and art collectors from culturally charged places like for example Cambridge that they want a gallery and gift shop like this on their door step too.  

All I can say is that I'll be doing my best to bring our brand, full of aspiration and love to the 4 corners of Great Britain and beyond. I'll keep you guessing. Haha. Here I am with a friend after the Kate Bush concert. "Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow,  ..unbelievable". Hope folk will be saying that about us!!  


In this issue, we reveal the artists for our superb  Summer Exhibition and how to get  tickets . We keep you up to date with our forthcoming  workshops in April and May and our new  work opportunities
We announce a  win win deal for our loyal customers and you can get up to speed also with our new art and products including a great new brand from our latest artist, the youngest in our gallery, only 15. 

First prize to the one who hears our first little whisper to UK artists and makers...shhhhh!!!

Are you the right candidate for an amazing opportunity which will be your first step towards employment in the Creative Industry? We have a vacancy now for an art sales internship.

Are you looking for interesting focussed volunteer work which will give your aims, ambitions, or weekly timetable more structure? We have a couple of gaps. Find out more.

One of our very important remits, is to give work and volunteer opportunities to people from the area, especially young people. Our two Operations Managers started off as interns, experiencing a 3-6 month programme of training. Now they will be part of the next intern's training. So if you think you can go places in this industry, an internship with us could be the start.

We also offer structured training to work experience students from our local schools through the Skills Service. To date we have given work experience to 25 school students. Find out more
