The opening was a special event celebrated with canapes made by our chef Nigel and Ginger Ale.
Paul Stepton officially opened the Gallery and a message of support was sent by Charlie Smith, Mayor of Southwark, see his message below:
"Congratulations on the opening of the New Shaw Gallery. I wish I could be there in person but unfortunately have other committments at this time. I am sure the student's work is outstanding and I look forward to visiting in person once it has been opened. Keep up with your wonderful work."
