I think Spring has sprung, hope you are enjoying the lovely weather.  Why not get out and about, I've got some ideas for you...

Places to visit - artwork to see:
Until 10th April - ONE exhibition - ROAR (Rotherham Art Renaisance), Imperial Buildings, High St, Rotherham.  This exhibition is in an atrium surrounded by newly refurbished buildings which house really  interesting and arty shops, well worth a visit especially if you haven't paid Rotherham town centre a visit for a while.

16th March to 22nd April - Miniatures - Cupola Contemporary Art, Middleswood Road, Hillsborough, Sheffield.  Small artwork, no larger than a £20 note, from Footrill Cottage, Skiers Spring and around the world.
Opening night on 16th March at 17.30 to 21.30

 31st March and 1st April - pop-up market - Currently Crafted @ The Orangery, Back Lane, Wakefield.  A mix of art and craft from wonderfully talented member  of Pennine Artists in a lovely old building.

And a new venture...
