Last week we heard the shocking news that the Kingâ€™s Lynn Arts Centre is being threatened with closure
by the local government.
But, if you donâ€™t live in Kingâ€™s Lynn, why should you care?
In short, none of us would have been able to enjoy and benefit from either the Hi Sklo Lo Sklo exhibition or the Ronald Stennett-Willson glass exhibition without it.
Without the incredible support and foresight of organiser Liz Falconbridge and her team, and the use of this perfect venue, none of these breakthrough events could possibly have occurred. As well as providing an invaluable and irreplaceable venue for the local community from its beautiful historic buildings, some dating back to the 15thC, the centre has also arguably affected the the world of collecting and the decorative arts globally.
If you buy, sell, collect or love Czech Glass or Stennett-Willson's landmark designs, just think where we would be today without these exhibitions or literature.
We need your support -- and quickly, as the local council meets soon. So, please:Sign the online petition at: http://www.petitiononline.com/SaveKLAC/
