A new exhibition by an Isle of Wight artist and a concert by a well-known Island jazz group are among the highlights of Mountbatten’s social programme.
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.
Don't miss this exhibition that explores the traditional visual art of punk culture from the mid 1970s to date, and its impact on the Isle of Wight through memorabilia such as posters, badges, ticket stubs, vinyl records, as well as show artworks by contemporary artists that retain a bit of punk ethos in their work today.
A campaign has been launched to fund the return of a large-scale wood carving that left the Island when music and film producer, Robert Stigwood, moved to Ascot. It's hoped the sculpture can be returned to East Cowes for all to enjoy.
