"blue" Gallery opened by East Oxford GP Dave Triffitt[1]. He writes below:

"I knew this space as "Blue" - my Art Gallery dream! Whilst the reality of running a gallery was more financially challenging than anticipated, I really enjoyed setting up and running it - I managed to sell a lot of my own work, and my Mum ran it – she loved doing that! Sadly we closed it after two years but it was a very enjoyable venture."
