This month we celebrate seven productive years for our artists group in East Grinstead. We remember highlights of our time together, from our initial exhibitions at Chequer Mead to the Mid Sussex District Council funded subway art work and our Arts Council funded Townscape projects. A massive thank you is due to John Pye at the High Street Bookshop who provides us with a wonderful meeting room on a monthly basis. We also recognise the ongoing support we have received from East Grinstead Town Council.
As we look forward to our ‘Example On Tour’ exhibition at Oxmarket Gallery in Chichester this year, we also want to express our sadness at the disappearance of the Greenstede Gallery in Chequer Mead, which provided such a vital venue for artists in our region. We would love to come back to East Grinstead and are currently looking for alternative spaces where we can exhibit our work in the town. We are already following up some interesting leads, so watch this space!
Here’s to the next seven years!
