Some New Exhibitions added

I have added some interesting new exhibitions that I think are a must see, located in the side bar, Exhibition corner, here

You will have to get a wriggle on to catch the Kurt Jackson paintings in Southampton Art Gallery, and only two days left for the Henry Moore Drawings at the Winchester Discovery Centre, but a bit of time left for the others …

Of course this is not an exhaustive list and there are loads of exhibitions on everywhere now the days are getting longer and the temperature is going up .. I am sitting here in gorgeous sunshine with my kitchen doors standing open ,, fabulous … I know, I know its a flase dawn but I love it and my spirits rise when the sun is here….but, these are the ones that have caught my attention … enjoy
