The Great Pause has us moving into our vast inner space of thoughts and imagination, reaching for books, images, photographs, media, art of all kinds to fill the sticky days of corona stretching around us. We are all seeking ways to ignite a sense of beauty, inspire hope for the future, combat the boredom, make sense of the nonsensical and maintain our connections to community.
One of the ways we can connect to our community is through supporting our local artists. Many of whom have a true passion for making our community a better place to live through their artwork.
There are many ways to support local artists, you can share their work on social media, attend their digital workshops, and if you are contemplating filling a blank wall, adding a new piece of jewellery, sculpture, clothing, writing, music, or any other creative experience to your collection look at your local options first.
With that in mind we have begun to curate a list of local artists of all persuasions which you can find here.
