The 9to90 Creative Community
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.
We offer an art service- workshops that are free and open to all, for exploration, conversation, and creation. An annual open submission, free to enter competition and exhibition, has 3 age groups and numerous categories and prizes; 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 and Catherine Zeta Jones 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 will always offer this hybrid option for those unable to join us in person, and can offer art materials on request.
Works have been displayed so far.
Participants have been reached through an extensive sharing of inforamtion.
Entries created through our workshops with free materials and tuition.
