Isle of Wight shops to display local artwork

Visitors on Isle of Wight holidays later this year could be able to check out work by local artists during their time on the island.

Ventnor Town Council has voted in favour of asking landlords of empty shops in the area to allow them to place artwork in the windows to make the properties look more appealing.

All of the councillors agreed that in return for cleaning the shop fronts, the landlords should be asked to give space to displays of the talents of islanders, reports VentnorBlog.

"Hopefully the landlords will reconsider their position and realise that well-kept shop fronts add to the value of the area and encourage more people to visit the town," commented the local news provider.

Ventnor is one of the most popular towns on the island for people on Isle of Wight holidays, due to its Mediterranean climate and attractions such as the Ventnor Heritage Centre and the Botanic Gardens.
