Art Takes Many Forms .. and comics is one that always fascinates!
The Prestoungrange Gothenburg has played host to more than 100 arts events and many thousands of visitors since it re-opened in July 2004 not all straight as a paint brush either. In November / December this year Tony Carter who created the reproduction 1930s Bellfield Broon Coo Teapots used in the James Park Bistro is putting on an exhibition of Novelty Teapots including a Wiles Coach.
