A wealth of artistic talent from around the northwest gathered at the Warehouse Gallery in Derry on Thursday night for the opening of their summer exhibition. Among the many great work on display were paintings in oil, sculptures moulded from clay to expressive figures in cartoon form reminiscent of characters from children’s books.
