New Isles of Scilly Arts guide launched


Members of the islands’ arts community gathered for an informal reception at the Atlantic Inn over Christmas to celebrate the launch of the new Isles of Scilly Arts Guide.

The booklet lists the large number of artists and craftspeople living and working on the islands, with colour illustrations of their work and a location map.

The 56-page guide is produced by Creative Islands, an initiative funded by the Arts Council of England and led by the Islands' Partnership.

IP Executive Director David Jackson told The Cornishman: "We are very pleased with the guide which will hopefully raise the profile of artists, their galleries and workshops in Scilly."

The Creative Islands team is also looking into the possibility of a ‘pop-up’ gallery for summer group exhibitions.
