Membership Medley

Prospectus

Blue Line Arts is pleased to present our Membership Medley show each year to celebrate the artists who are supporting members of the gallery. A treasured tradition, this exhibition brings together a range of artists who may be new to the scene, or have been around since the earliest days… and with over 55 years of history, those are some committed members!
