Art trail for the Civic Centre

Today I attended the launch of an exciting new collaboration between Southend Council and Studio 3 - an artistic collective based in Leigh and operated by 5 local artists, including a number of people involved with the massively successful Leigh Art Trail.The agreement allows Studio 3 to provide, without charge, artwork created by local artists which will be displayed around the offices in the Civic Centre on a 6 month rolling programme.There will be the opportunity for staff or other visitors to buy the pictures if they wish. The scheme opens up a new prospective audience to the local artists on display whilst enhancing the workplace for council staff in an exciting way. It is very much a win-win idea and based on the art displayed today for the opening the quality is fantastic - looks like a good opportunity to find Mrs H's Christmas present!
