"Our aim is to Support local artists by offering a creative hub for the community of Burton upon Trent and its visitors and promoting creativity for improved mental wellbeing"
The gallery is situated in Crossley House which is located between the Market Hall and Burton & South Derbyshire College in Burton upon Trent. The venue houses; to the front, a coffee shop, where you can enjoy a range of fine teas and ground coffees, along with a range of tasty homemade fine snacks and cakes, with ingredients locally sourced wherever possible. The café includes the offer of vegetarian / vegan / gluten free options, all served in a creative way to match the creative environment.
There is a small selection of art materials for sale in the shop area to nurture creative skills, before you enter the gallery space proper, which is a large area (approx 36sq metres), housing a range of artwork; from paintings and drawings to jewellery, pottery and sculptures, predominantly by local creatives.
