Since galleries and exhibitions have been closed this has left artists across the country looking at creative ways to display their latest artistic endeavours. Two local creative businesses, Portsdown Graphic Design and Tiny Engines, have come up with a great solution to support local artists in Portsmouth. Artsmouth is a curated virtual art gallery providing visual artists with links to Portsmouth the opportunity to exhibit their work.
The virtual gallery opened in April 2020 and has exhibited works by more than 25 local artists including Williamson Art and Photography, James Mankiewicz and striking artworks by Mark Kellett. The latest exhibition, titled My View of Portsmouth, showcases work by local photographer Daniel Yarker, also known as Mullion Marauder and is best known for his monochromatic images of Southsea. My View of Portsmouth is available to view from 19th June to 2nd July 2020. My favourite exhibition so far has been the most recent group exhibition which displayed a range of illustrations, oil paintings and acrylic on canvas.
