Geopark Ambassador Artists August Exhibition
I have recently been awarded the status of Art Ambassador for the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark. Along with 10 other artist 9 of which are showing their work at Artizan gallery in August.
'Artizan Gallery is an Associate Partner of the English Riviera Global Geopark and in this role champions the significant value this status affords our local community. To support this, we recognise and showcase the work of artist living both inside and outside of our Georpark, who have been inspired by its unique sites and geography'.
Meet the Geopark Ambassador Artists and discover the inspiration of our Geopark home!
'At the start of August we had the pleasure of welcoming Prof Setsuya Nakada, Chair of the Japanese UNESCO Global Geopark Committee and Dr Manfred Kupetz, Geologist for Muskau Arch UNESCO Global Geopark on their revalidation visit of the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark.
We had the opportunity to join them for a number of site visits including introducing them to our Geopark Ambassador Artists who talked about how their Geopark home inspires their creativity. It's a programme we're really proud of which allows our artists to advocate for this important designation and help to educate audiences about our significant local heritage through their practise.
You can continue to enjoy this incredible exhibition for the whole of August in our Garden Gallery, or alternatively come along Saturday 10th August to our Artist Preview evening from 18:00-20:00.' Artizan Gallery
