THE team behind Bank Quay House Gallery have announced they will be closing its doors for the final time.

After eight years, the Sankey Street art space will close on Friday, August 31.

A spokesperson from the gallery said: "We are very grateful for the warm support we have received and would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has exhibited, supported and visited the gallery.

"Your enthusiasm and camaraderie have sustained and encouraged us over the years.

"It has been an absolute joy to be a part of so many artist's journeys, whose work we have presented and who have inspired us, and hope that will continue."

The gallery looks forward to future projects when it may pop up in another form.

Until then, Python Properties' art strand will continue in Bolton and Middlesbrough.

The last exhibition at Bank Quay House will be Robert John Watson's 'One' opening this Thursday, July 12 from 6pm until 8pm.

The team added: "We hope you can join us to toast this new exhibition and eight wonderful years of exhibitions in Warrington."
