THIS month HVAF members Barbara Weeks and Judi Menges will be showcasing work at the launch of new exhibition space 'b Gallery'.

Set up by Bedfordshire based art entrepreneurs, Melanie Burnell and Julie Boyle, 'b Gallery' will open on December 5 at a Grand Opening Gala.

The exhibition space at the Old Town Hall, Toddington, a large listed building with five rooms on two floors, will house a group show of fine art, glass, ceramics, photography, jewellery and prints by Beryl Cook and Rolf Harris.

Alongside their growing fine art collection of published artists, 'b Gallery' represents an array of local artists, varying from undiscovered first-timers to more established professional artists.

Barbara and Judi's work will be exhibited until the end of January.
