Wild About Wight is a Vectis Housing community project exploring the natural and built heritage of East Wight. Throughout 2018 artists, Hannah George, Babs Gowan, Carol Jaye, Caroline Underwood and Ian Whitmore have introduced people to our landscapes, streetscapes, wildlife and architecture through art. 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!

You too can get involved at our free family drop-in workshop on Sat 13th Apr 10am - 1pm.

Supported by:

Down to the Coast, IW Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Heritage Lottery Fund, Vectis Housing, Daisie Rich Trust

Gallery opening times: Mon – Sat 10am – 5pm
