We are saved

Truly unbelievable. We are still reeling from the shock of this groundbreaking moment. ART. MACCLESFIELD.THE GUARDIAN Not three words that are ever heard together but this weekend 9 Barnaby Visual Art shows appeared in The Guardian Guide.
Crikey are we finally shrugging off The Times 'badge of shame'? One look at the Barnaby Festival Brochure, and the answer is a very loud 'yes'.

There are actually 22 Visual Art Exhibitions this coming weekend. Grab an Art Card ( avail at Art Venues soon) and hit the Art Trail. Maybe take a copy of the Art Start Childrens Quiz with you to lure your kids along. This will be available from the website to print off and at the venues themselves.
Cinemac tickets and a Craft pack from the Art Store to be won.

Loop readers are invited to special openings this week.
