I am delighted to be able to say that I am now a member of ArtCan - this is how it describes itself:
ArtCan is a non-profit arts organisation that supports artists through profile raising activities and exhibitions, an open network of ‘likeminded’ peers, and practical support structures. The ArtCan team strive to develop a vibrant exhibition and events programme for their members and international artists who have no formal gallery representation. This also ensures that ‘art’ is being shared to the wider public audience in an accessible and exciting fashion. In turn, this enables artists to find their voice and sustain their practice.
I have been following ArtCan and several artists for a while now and have been so impressed with its supportive, encouraging ethos and the amazing opportunities it creates for artists to show their work.
