This year’s Collection is different. COVID-19 restrictions mean we’re unable to warmly welcome visitors in our usual way to enjoy art displays and purchase community art and craft, so we’ve gone virtual.

The Collection Online features resident artists and exhibits a selection of their works.

Below, you can browse art pieces including paintings, sculpture, stained glass and ceramics by six community artists.

These original and beautiful pieces are available to purchase now, and a proportion of income from each artist goes towards our community services and support at the Centre.

So why not enjoy a browse. Select an artist below and you will be able to liaise directly with them to ask questions and make your purchase.

Artists will ensure pieces are dispatched safely to reach their destinations.
