Welcome to the March edition of the EVAN newsletter…

So here we are in Spring with our most recent newsletter to let you know what has been going on with EVAN and EVAN members in the Gallery and in Cumbria and what is coming up this Spring. The most important news to tell you is about our new web site www.evanevents.co.uk  where you can not only find a massive listing on what is coming up in the EVAN Gallery, around Cumbria with EVAN members, but our old articles and newsletters and music events.  You can subscribe on the Events home page.

We now have a new website www.evanevents.co.uk It has a fantastic listing of events for EVAN including music. There is a great blog section with older newsletters and articles and you can sign up on the Events home page to receive updates.

Contemporary Cloth Exhibition

The EVAN Gallery had it's first exhibition dedicated to textiles. Housed in the EVAN Gallery in Penrith, the exhibition ran from 15th February to the 29th February 2020.

EVAN has now been running for over 3 years and this was the first time the textile artists have shown together as a group, getting together to present their personal interpretation of contemporary.
