12 April 2021– 10 May 2021
The gallery re-opens with the brand new New Kent Art Collective. 10 Thanet artists are joining forces to create a collective of creatives that will bring a fabulous variety of art to Broadstairs in 2021. An artist collective is an initiative that is the result of a group of artists working together, usually under their own management, towards shared aims. By sharing equipment, space or materials, following shared ideologies, aesthetic and artistic views and working together as an extended family of creative like minded people, the New Kent Art Collective will bring together a unique, inspirational and enjoyable gallery space.
