Warb has a show of recent paintings at the tour de Montsalès until the 21st of August. Opening hours are 3 - 7pm every day. Entry is free.

Anybody wishing to support the work of the gallery could become a friend (adhérant) for 18€ per annum.  All the money for running the tower has to be raised from private and corporate donors as well as fundraising events such as the tapestry weekend held in July, sales of catalogues and refreshments in the tour, the annual quine etc.

Our main expense is our gardienne Corinne who is at the tour Monday to Friday to greet visitors.  Everything else - design and distribution of publicity material -  posters, catalogues, cards, the hanging of shows, website design and maintenance,  meeting artists and planning the programme, gardiennage of the tour at the weekend etc. is all done by a handful of volunteers.

Any help gratefully received!

Meabh, is there a catalogue available and/or are there cards for sale from the tapestry weaving exhibition?

Hi Olga,
I'm afraid we've sold them all. I can't help you with the tapestry postcards either as everything we didn't sell went back to the artists.
Not much use am I?!

Ah well, it was worth a try anyway. I hope that your weaving workshop went well in July.

Carl, Ian remembers you. He left the Merc in 2002 and a couple of years or so later it closed I think. They were interesting times.
