Gravesend Art Group Exhibition
10 Oct 2021
The Gravesend art group held their annual exhibition from 23rd – 26th September in St Georges Church in Gravesend. This was a new venture as they were unable to use their normal venue. We successfully applied for the £250 grant aimed at Supporting local Community Arts offered by the main Arts Society and supplemented it with £100 from our own resources. The money was used to purchase display materials to help mount mobile exhibitions. It was agreed that their exhibition would also be an opportunity for The Arts Society Gravesend to raise awareness of who we are, where we meet, and to encourage new members.
The Gravesend Art Group has been in existence for over sixty years and has 40 members who normally meet weekly to share their work and ideas. They also hold occasional events for the wider community, encouraging public participation and new membership. They are pro-active in terms of social media, displaying weekly online exhibitions of current work on their popular Facebook page and also have a regularly updated website.
