We at Connect With Art aim to bring local artists and art lovers together. Get to know us and become a part of our art community.
We like what we know
Undoubtedly, art is cosmopolitan by nature, and the term local solely implies that the artist resides somewhere nearby. Since artists always draw inspiration from what’s around them, it’s exciting to see how others interpret and respond to the same environment.
What’s your story?
Every artist has a story to tell.
Meeting and collaborating with other artists is vital. While art style and preferences can be as opposite as political views and spark heated debate, art is a safe and rewarding battleground.
It is important to be able to connect to likeminded people, share ideas and receive constructive critique. These connections build motivation, allow to share resources, inspire collaborations and most innovative ideas.
Art is everywhere.
It inhabits the urban landscape. Art gives a unique character to public spaces, provides a solid base for building relationships within the community, and can resolve particular social issues. Art has a magic power to connect the community as a whole.
The eye of the beholder
The beholder completes the art.
Therefore, it is essential to make art visible. By putting art in focus, we can grow Jersey social capital and make our island even more beautiful.
Supporting local artists does not only mean buying or commissioning their work. It can just be a word of mouth or a share on social media. You can support your local artists by visiting exhibitions, workshops or events or maybe even by showcasing the artwork on your premises or providing space for pop-up exhibitions and art studios.
