After much hard work and preparation we are nearly ready for the Chichester Art Trail which starts tomorrow and runs over the this weekend and next and this Bank Holiday Monday. My husband Alan (Alan Frost Photography) and I are exhibiting from our studio at Venue 79 in Fishbourne.
Entry will be via the garden (another work in progress!) and the first thing you will see is this:
You can come and guess how many lighters I have collected from Chichester Harbour during 2017 but over the years (2008-2017) during the Great British Beach Clean (every 3rd weekend of September volunteers removed and recorded 10,240 cigarette lighters and tobacco pouches.

Do come and see a selection of Alan’s wonderful black and white photographs of the Chichester Harbour area, as well as his church interiors and one or two landscapes from further afield. I will be displaying my collage and mixed media work together with my assemblages which I hope can be appreciated as art whilst simultaneously sending out a message about the discarded items to be found along our shores.
During opening hours, I will be demonstrating the art of collage – it would be great to see loads of people who would like to “meet the artists”, browse the work (finished and in progress) and sketchbooks. Alan will be running a video presentation about his work. We look forward to welcoming you!
