Ramsgate Arts
Two Ramsgate galleries link up to present Art < £100, in support of the annual Ramsgate Festival. As last year’s first joint exhibition was such fun, they decided to do it again! This second year there are nearly 100 works of art by 40 artists at this affordable art event in Ramsgate town centre. The organisers are delighted to have work from London and around Kent as well as by many of Thanet’s population of fine artists which will be on show in the York Street Gallery and the gallery at Nice Things.

The exhibition runs for two weeks from Wednesday 13 – Tuesday 26 February. All works are on sale and both galleries have donated their space. With a widely varied show of paintings, prints and photographs, as well as mixed media and textiles, it could be a great way to buy your first original painting or find a unique image to cheer your home or office. As the gallery owners say: “Having an original work of art gives lifelong pleasure and it is very rewarding to know you own the only one of something, it is uniquely special. And if you buy a piece, you can also know that the artist will be truly delighted.

The hugely popular York Street Gallery is run by artist Mike Samson; he has donated a work to the exhibition, so all the value goes to the Festival. Several other artists have also donated pieces. Suzy Humphries runs the gallery at Nice Things and co-founded Ramsgate Arts in 2009.

There is an Open Day on Saturday 16 February from 1pm – 4pm, with both galleries offering drinks and refreshments. Many of the artists will be there and people are encouraged to come, celebrate and meet the people behind the work on display.
