A Successful Expo/20
Following the successful Expo/20, Diana Ross (creative director) who masterminded the exhibition has explained on how it all came about….
Diana moved from Canada to Brockham 22 years ago and was extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to host an art exhibition in the de-commissioned chapel. The first year, there were such an eclectic group, an illustrator, a jewellery maker, a wood turner, sculptor, photographer, mixed media and medium. It was held over 3 days during the Village Victorian Fair. The response was terrific, the artists managed to sell a few pieces and the introduction of Expo was born. She realised that there was such talent within the village and decided to open it up.
Last year, it was different of course, there was no opportunity to gather, they had no building to show off “their stuff”, so a front window in their local shop was the only way to go. The brief, size, A5 landscape, the whole idea was to display them collectively.
What lockdown has meant to you, was the angle, the response had been extremely rewarding. The purchases of the paintings were donated to Conquest Art and managed to raise over £300.
From all of us at CA, a BIG thank you to Diana, the Expo/20 team and all who purchased the fabulous creations for your support and generosity. During this difficult time, every donation we receive is appreciated and will help in re-opening our groups when it is safe to do so.
