A NEW art gallery in Buntingford is displaying work by adults with learning difficulties.
The Cross Gallery was set up by the St Elizabeth's Centre in Much Hadham, a residential centre for adults with epilepsy or learning difficulties.
The gallery displays and sells work produced by residents in art classes, while also exhibiting pieces by other artists.
Emma Turness, curator of the Cross Gallery, said: "It's absolutely fantastic for our clients to see their work on display.
