Art Alert is 10 years old! This well-known art group will have its 10th Birthday in 2018 and this exhibition celebrates the many changes and challenges of the group’s first decade. The group have all decided to respond to the theme of ‘doorways’, and the artwork on display will showcase how members of the group have responded to this theme in a variety of media. Fittingly, the term doorway might refer to a transition or a new beginning – reflecting the times of transition which this wonderful collection of artists have worked through together. Here’s to the next 10 years!
