Outside- there is work going on, re-routing the automotive chaos which is Derby's ring road. Tarmac being turned from a flat surface to chunks and dust. To enable a fresh redirected surface to appear and serve the vehicular masses.
From the clatter of hydraulic hammers to the deafening scrapes of digger buckets extracting solid matter from the earth's surface...
In the distance appears a retreat of blocks and glass, a sight for the sorest of eyes- We are attending the Frairgate Studios, Summer Art Show.
Inside- a stark contrast, a relax atmos, music soothing the sole of one's feet.
It is the first time we'd been to this place, a pleasant gallery with a contemporary collection.
Consisting of a ground floor exhibit, and then into a security elevator to the third floor which again was a gallery but with a difference.
We exited the elevator to an atrium type space with great views of the north of the city, so good it proved difficult to concentrate on the art.
Into the Lower Floor Gallery.

We were scared to look at the title.
