Chance to meet artists as Tonbridge gallery spreads wings

by Andy Tong | 31st January 2019

ARTSPRING Gallery in Tonbridge High Street is offering a new ‘meet the artists’ event on the first Saturday of each month.

The public will be able to come along between 2-4pm and talk to featured exhibitors while enjoying a glass of wine and cake.

Among the guest artists who will be showcasing their work are painter Colin Anderson, who lives in the town, and Cambridge-based collage artist Karen Stamper.

There will be a new guest artist in the gallery every month. Jill Goldsworth said: “ArtSpring’s reputation is growing and we are attracting artists from further afield.”

The artists’ cooperative will continue to show its members’ work, with collections changing every two months, and they will now be displayed at an additional venue, Castle Lodge.

Mrs Goldsworthy added: “We are always taking the opportunity for more community involvement, so we will now be branching out into this co-working office space.”

Castle Lodge, set up by DeskRenter Limited, hires out work stations, office desks and meeting spaces on a short-term basis for business start-ups.

The gallery is also offering a prize draw, with the public invited to visit and leave their name and contact details in order to win a £50 voucher to spend in the gallery. The draw takes place on Saturday February 2.
