Giving a voice to artists
Mark Cosby, Chair of Ventnor Artists Collective, said,
“Our group is giving a voice for the many artists working in Ventnor – artists make such an important contribution to the quality of life of our town.
“During the year we have organised visits to exhibitions, talks by guest speakers, social events, a life drawing group and worked with partners on community arts projects.
“We are excited that, with the support of the Ku Gallery and Ventnor Exchange, we have the opportunity at Christmas to display the work of our members.”
