artists do it in galleries...

when any group of people come together to create something new, there is a power and an energy in their shared passion and vision. Eden Valley Artistic Network(EVAN) is just such a group. Its' birth and growth has been amazing to watch, it is all inclusive of anyone who is an artist, musician, writer etc, it has a website, over 100 artists signed up, a regular programme of events...and now an art gallery! 

And not just a gallery, this is a studio hub, where you can see raw art in the making in a real artist's studio, artists do the selling so you can talk to a live artist, a fantastic opportunity to connect... how does it get any better than that?

Not bad for just over a year! Truly 'Made in EVAN' is going places!  It is based in the Eden valley which is East Cumbria, and over here in the 'wild' West, a West Evan group is coming together, slowly creating a network for artistic people to share experiences, come together socially and offering opportunities maybe to show work or run workshops to get others creating. Just being with a group of people who get who you are, and why you do what you do, is incredibly valuable!

hope you enjoyed this mini tour and a celebration of the power of connection and collaboration...inspired and inspiring...well worth a visit if you're in Penrith
