Arts week – Artist in residence – 21-27 May

Here is an opportunity for people to see you in action and see your work! (It can help sales, too, people are more likely to buy from an artist they have met).

As the artists in residence spaces were so popular last year, we’ll have two venues this year – the Library and the Meet Box.
