Round Tower Gallery Exhibitions

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the help and support you have given us during our time at Black Swan, without you it would not have been possible. Having spoken to Jackie Devereux she said that it was a superb venue, where all the local artists are making a huge effort to keep their beautiful venue alive and relevant to the local community.

It goes without saying that we would love to be part of Black Swan plans in the future.”

Les Williams – Society of Graphic Fine Art, March 2017
