Art lovers will have to pay to visit Guernsey's popular art venue, the Greenhouse, when it moves into the Guernsey Museum next year.

Visitors could be charged up to £5.75 to visit the Candie Museum's newly refurbished gallery.

The Greenhouse has been showcasing local artists' work since it opened at the Information Centre in 2008.

Joanna Littlejohns, head of the Arts Commission, said it was a "proactive" move as the building could be sold off.

The new space was a lot bigger, giving the artists "more space to express themselves", she said.

The first exhibition, on Friday 14 February, will feature the work of local painter Isaac Lythgoe.
