The Invisible County:
Staffordshire has recently had new road-signs erected at the county borders, grandly declaring us “The Creative County“. A fraction of the money from just one of these signs might better have been spent on getting regular listings for our galleries in AN magazine’s gallery-listings section. Since AN readers during the last three years could be forgiven for believing that North Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent have no gallery shows, ever. Perhaps this is why Galleries magazine, the biggest UK arts exhibitions listings magazine, seems to believe that the county doesn’t exist.
