The 9to90 Creative Community is a project especially for those that wouldn’t normally visit a gallery. Devised by GS Artists aiming to reach creative’s that might not even know they ARE creative!
An open submission, free to enter competition with 3 age groups and numerous categories; Painting, Drawing, Craft, Prose and Poetry, Photography, and a very special ‘Paint a Portrait Category’ To date Sir Peter Blake, Michael Sheen and Rob Brydon have been immortalised in numerous materials. All the works entered are exhibited, adopting professional standards. Our judges are experts in their field and well known in the local community.
The free events offer opportunities to create works to enter the exhibition and explore new creative challenges. During the pandemic we have taken all the workshops online, and happy to report that creativity has been flourishing!

Participants have been reached through an extensive sharing of inforamtion.
