Selena Bragg’s pottery, Christine Norman’s watercolour pieces and Maggie Allen’s oil paintings are exhibited in the Curwens Art Gallery in High Street, and the sneak peak event was hailed a success.

Maggie, who lives in Royston and started painting in 2006, told the Crow: “The preview went very well, lots of people turned up and we all enjoyed meeting new people and having a chat over a glass of wine.”

Maggie met Selena through Cambridge wood turner Rowland Penfold, who also regularly exhibits his work at Curwens.

Curwens’ Amanda Thurston told the Crow: “The evening was well-attended with lots of interest in the original artwork and some sales!
