The building is stunning, it was built in 1707 a non-conformist chapel and as such is large, light and airy and has plenty of space for each of the pieces show at their best.  In 1968 the chapel closed and was abandoned and vandalised, falling into terrible disrepair. Fortunately, after many years it was rescued and renovated by its present owners, NVB Architects who also run it as a community arts centre – hence our presence here.

There are works on show from 15 of our members and all the pieces have a story to tell!  The exhibition is called ‘Unfolding Stories’ and the work shows the progress we have made since the last exhibition.  We do not set a theme to our exhibitions which makes it a very interesting body of work.

We have had lovely visitors who have enjoyed chatting about the work on show and quite often the stitching they have been involved with.

On Sunday the 3rd of July we will be having a ‘Meet the Artists’ day with tea and cakes, it would be great to see you!

The exhibition runs until Tuesday, 5th July between 10-5pm – and Frome Festival starts today too – so there is lots to see and do in Frome over the next few days. We look forward to seeing you!
Venue:  Rook Lane Chapel, Bath Street, Frome, Somerset BA11 1DN
