Lining a few things up

Some of the latest pots - those fired last term - have finally been collected from City Lit, and unwrapped. Most are stowed in a safe place, away from the dust and danger of carpentry, but a few didn't fit into that space and are yet to be put away -
Fired pots in a line, and some stitched pots with ceramic aspirations
What I'm after lining up, though, is a few exhibitions to go to, based on a browse of the latest Art Quarterly magazine. Many are ending in the next few weeks, and others are coming up. Some involve train trips and/or days out. They are listed in order of finishing date, for those currently showing, and starting date, for future exhibitions.
