It all happened because of a chance remark over coffee one morning, bemoaning the heaps of paintings piling up, going nowhere, as real-life, in-the-flesh art club exhibitions were cancelled for the second year in a row due to Covid-19. So it was that this fearless band of four friends, who happen to be neighbours, decided to mount their own pop-up exhibition in Rye – and hope the artworks will fly!
Should you be in town enjoying the delights of the arts festival, then please find the time to drop in to this pop-up exhibition of paintings, porcelain and ceramics!
