THE Mascall Centre in Ludlow is looking for artists to exhibit their work next year. 

The centre is taking bookings for both groups and individuals, encouraging exhibitions from students, hobbyists and professionals alike.

Located in Ludlow, the Mascall Centre is a former school building that provides a space for events, exhibitions and even weddings.

Its Treasure Gallery is open to the public during the centre's opening hours, and offers artists a chance to exhibit their work for around a month at a time. It has a hanging system for displaying art, but says that it is unable to display work that cannot be hung on this system. The centre also stresses that artists are themselves responsible for hanging and taking down their exhibitions, but that the centre can help with marketing and promotion.
