Following the success of Emsworth Artists’ first online exhibition which took place last summer, group members have been working hard on creations to showcase through their next online offering.

The spring online art exhibition will be in the same format as last year, and will be online from Saturday, March 27, to Saturday, April 10.

Normally, the exhibition is held over the August bank holiday but due to the Emsworth Art Trail hopefully being held in September, the group has moved the exhibition to spring.

Over the years, shows by the group have raised more than £30,000 for Emsworth Community Centre, and the artists hope to continue their support for this cause.

Jan Copsey from Emsworth Artists said: ‘We are suggesting as last time that a voluntary donation can be made to the community centre by any artist who sells their work, thus enabling us to continue our support for them at this difficult time.

‘We hope you will enjoy our forthcoming online exhibition, and look forward to staging further exhibitions as soon as possible either online or otherwise.’

More than 20 artists are expected to take part, meaning an exhibition of at least 100 artworks, and each artists has a page dedicated to their work so people can purchase directly from the creator.

To view the pieces created by Emsworth Artists, head over to emsworthartists.org.uk between March 27 and April 10, or find them on Facebook.
