Anchorsholme Library is preparing to host its second art exhibition as part of a wider plan to support Fylde based artists.

Following the success of the first exhibition last month by Sandra Ball, Blackpool based artist Claire Balfour will display her work from Monday until next Saturday.

Sandra has a broad range of styles mainly using acrylic techniques as well as some watercolours and pencil sketches.

Anchorsholme Coun Paul Galley said: “I’m so grateful to Claire for coming forward to want to show her work to the public.

“I’m sure everyone will enjoy seeing it. Our vision for Anchorsholme Library has always been for it to become a community hub used by everyone and enjoyed by all.

“What better way to do that than to allow the building to support independent artists from around the Fylde coast.

“January’s art exhibition by Sandra was really popular and we now have artists and exhibitions lined up until June.

“With the new cafe in the library doing really well, I’m over the moon with how it is all going and best of all it’s community led.”

If you would like to exhibit your work in June contact Coun Galley on 826679 or email on
