Ryde Art Collective to launch spring exhibition

The Ryde Art Collective will be launching its spring exhibition this April with a whole host of local talent set to be on display for all to see.

Initially set up to give artists from the Isle of Wight the attention they deserve, the initiative makes its home at the Depozitory gallery in Ryde.

The event is likely to be extra special as it marks the first anniversary for the Ryde Art Collective, which launched with a spring exhibition last year focusing on works by local creatives including Peter Allen, Rachel Andrews, Zoe Barker, Gillian Clarke, Marie Colquhoun, Marcelle Edwards and Babs Gowan.

It was praised by critics for its incredible variety of landscapes, seascapes and skyscapes, depicted with passion in various forms including ceramics, illustration, photography, painting, assemblage and pastels.

This year's event will likely be no different, with the same opportunity to browse the work while enjoying a cup of tea, and possibly even watching some of the artists at work.

"This is an exciting opportunity for islanders to view a variety of creative work and even try their hand at something new during one of the weekend demonstrations," commented Jenny Sprackling of Jenga Photography. "We look forward to welcoming you!"

Attendance is entirely free and refreshments are provided, but those enjoying the art are asked to contribute a small sum to the new Isle of Wight-based charity Ability Dogs 4 Young People and Children, which trains dogs to help disabled children and young adults lead independent lives.

Most of the artists will be in attendance at some point to discuss their work, so feel free to approach them.

This event runs from April 5th until the 13th and is sure to be a great community get-together.

The Depozitory can be found at 23 Nelson Street in Ryde and the exhibition is open from 10am until 4:30pm every day.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801697731-ADNFCR
