Art in Isolation – a project .
Caroline from the Bradford group has forwarded this challenge from an artist friend of hers based in Somerset, Tess Arnitage. Tess is sending out 20×20 cm canvas frames for £10.00 each and the idea is to create an image from the inside of your house looking through a window. A view, in any media.
She is then going to collate them and present them somehow and somewhere in Somerset , at the end of lockdown. She is also going to auction them off and give the money to the NHS – it’s a non profit making project.
