A community show celebrating a whole year of art workshops exploring the Island's built and natural world, from landscapes and wildlife to streetscapes and architecture.
Wild About Wight is a Vectis Housing community project exploring the natural and built heritage of East Wight. Each month throughout 2018, a team of artists, Hannah George, Babs Gowan, Carol Jaye, Caroline Underwood and Ian Whitmore have introduced people to our landscapes, streetscapes, wildlife and architecture through art. Between them, they’ve brought a fantastic array of art techniques to outdoor and indoor pop-up studios ranging from woodlands and beaches to bird hides, barns and heritage buildings. The results are a season by season celebration of place by all sorts of people, through art, words and sound!
