‘Memories’ at the Saulter Street Gallery 

From now until Sept 8, visitors to the Centre are able to view Memories, a breath-taking series of paintings and multi-media pieces by Ferida Dilmaghani.
Ferida works in the style of Abstract Expressionism, and most of Ferida’s works in this exhibition adopt the format of collages, joining contrasting and disparate images to create delightful and meditative works. 

The Saulter Street Stairwell Gallery is located in the heritage staircase at the south end of the building, from 9am to 9pm, and can be accessed through the 2nd or 3rd floor.  Admission is free.
