A NEW art gallery has opened its doors in Painswick.

The Red Dot Gallery was launched with a bit of a do on Wednesday evening.

Gallery owner Gilly Hill welcomed guests, including David Drew MP and several local artists to the gallery opening.

The inaugural exhibition at the Red Dot, which is located in St Mary’s Street, is entitled Beautiful Creatures and features works by Leigh Banks.

Originally from Zimbabwe and now living in Epsom, Leigh enjoys painting wildlife.

The exhibition continues until October 9.
