There is a very good local art space where I live. It's called SVA or Stroud Valley Artspace, it comprises of a collection of artist studio's, exhibiting spaces and a bar/venue. I've had some great nights at the SVA...they tend to end in lots of alcohol consumption and dancing to not-really-my-kind-of-music with more enthusiasm than is really necessary.
So the other Sunday I wandered down to a private view of Corinne Hockley's The Thirteenth Tree. It was held in a space called The Goods Shed, or Brunel Building (it's next to the railway line and was designed by I K Brunel of western trains and architecture fame.) It's freezing in there which suited the exhibition beautifully.
