How would you draw, paint or photograph your local neighbourhood? Aspex Gallery and Southsea Lifestyle have asked people living within the PO area to visually respond to what they love or loathe about their local area.
Hundreds of residents, of all ages and abilities have submitted postcard-sized artworks, resulting in a new exhibition at Aspex Gallery in Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth.
From these entries, a select few will feature within local publication Southsea Lifestyle and one winner will be showcased in the Guest Relations Suite in Gunwharf Quays, the South Coast’s premium retail outlet. Following the exhibition at Aspex, all of the postcards will be donated to the Portsmouth City Archive, creating a visual reflection of our local area for future generations.
Joanne Bushnell, Director of Aspex, said:
“We are thrilled that this partnership has given Aspex the opportunity to showcase the creative
contributions of local residents of all ages. The artworks are stunning and will provide our visitors with an extremely entertaining exhibition”.
