There is something extraordinary about working with a group of like-minded people. You don’t always see eye to eye, but it is the opportunity to push through ideas that makes it worthwhile. AiR has been my meeting place, it is an opportunity, once a month, to test my ideas and consider others.

“AiR members believe in the power of art, the importance of talking about it and the enjoyment of making and showing it. AiR is a group of skilled artists who exhibit a rich variety and depth of art techniques and approaches.  The group consists of some of the best-known local artists and its members are some of the leading local practitioners in their chosen fields: in oils, in watercolours, in etching, in mixed media, in clay, in textiles and in timber.”
