Free entry to all exhibitions and artist receptions
Opening hours: 10am-5pm Monday-Saturday.
The Centre is closed during the last two weeks in August and over the Christmas break.
Our exhibitions programme is very important to Forest Arts. Not only do the artworks create a stimulating ever changing backdrop, they also add to the ambience of the centre. We hope you enjoy seeing all the different media and artists. You can also buy the art on display - please ask us about any of the artists or their work - we’re happy to help.
