Well today is an exciting time for us, it is the day the doors of the main gallery close officially for the start of the development project on the main gallery building. It’s both sad and exciting for us. We are very excited about the new building project and the extra facilities it offers but will miss working within the walls of the building while this happens. Here are a few photos of behind the scenes at the main gallery.

The cart dock, one of the areas desperately in need of an upgrade.

Not to forget our lovely staff room, this is how it looked before we left the building, it is a much emptier space now.

And finally......here is my old office space, tidy as usual! With Geoffrey whizzing by in the background.

Farewell to the main building for now, we look forward to working there again when it it refreshed.....hopefully end of 2010.
