The Babylon Gallery on Ely’s Waterside has a new look and a new name thanks to £11,000 of funding from the Arts Council.
Now known as Babylon ARTS, the space – which is situated in a converted eighteenth Century brewery - has been redeveloped and now includes a ‘multi-purpose micro-arts’ venue.
The redevelopment was carried out by two Ely companies, Salmon Brothers and Freeman Brear Architects.
The opening exhibition at Babylon ARTS, which is titled Master Prints, runs until Sunday October 18.
Looking ahead to next year, organisers say they are ready to ‘get edgy and intimate’ with Elvis McGonagall, Opera Dudes and Earl Okin.
The gallery is run by ADeC (Arts Development in East Cambridgeshire) with the help of a large number of volunteers.
Admission is free and there are often free art activities held for families and visitors.
