I would also like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the current exhibition at Avenue Gallery, ‘All Work and No Play Makes You a Dull Designer’ (28 October -15 November 2013), curated by Vicki Thomas and Friedmann Schaber. Please make a visit to this fun and informative show while you have the opportunity.
