The Vectis Decorative and Fine Arts Society lecture at Quay Arts on Thursday is your chance to learn more about the 19th century artist, James Whistler.
Isle of Wight Art
Perhaps it’s the beautiful landscapes or the refreshing coastline, we’re not sure, but something on the Isle of Wight certainly inspires creativity in those who live here.
We have some wonderful artists living and working on the Island, exhibiting in galleries, from their studios or online. Find out more about them in this section.
The lecture by Frank Woodgate - “Everything is art, Everything is Politics” - examines the provocative and often beautiful work of the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei.
