Preview evening

Even though the weather was horrible there was a warm and welcomimg atmosphere in the gallery. The preview evening was a great success with a lovely display of new work. It was a good opportunity to meet up with NeST regulars and new artists over a glass of wine or two. 
As well as Deborah and Kate giving talks, new artists Eva Meenhorst, Nikki Wright and Joy Dawes introduced themselves and talked about their work.
