A number of local artists are set to display their work in Boston’s theatre, which is opening its Foyer Gallery to the public after years of being closed.

Full Circle is the first show in a series of art exhibitions organised by Blackfriars Trust chairman Dr Stuart Bull and Boston artist Leszek Dabrowski.

It is an exhibition of ceramics, drawings, jewellery, paintings and prints by Mr Dabrowksi along with Lind Anso, Wendy Dabrowksa, Kate Naylor-High, Helen Webber, John Gray and John Snowden.

Blackfriars has had a purpose built art studio and gallery since 1967 and Dr Bull said its been a pivotal centre for stage and visual arts.

Dr Bull said: “The trustees of Blackfriars are really excited to be able to stage an exhibition by such talented local artists.

“It is many years since Blackfriars last staged anything like this, and we hope that many people who remember the old days, as well as the new generation, will come and view the works on display.

“We certainly intend that art exhibitions such as this will become a regular feature of Blackfriars again.”

The exhibition is open at the Spain Lane venue from Friday, October 17, to Saturday, November 15.

Admission to the Foyer Gallery is free. Most exhibits will be for sale and include a commission of 25 per cent going to Blackfriars Arts Centre.
