Portraits Project a huge success
The Character Portraits Project funded by Arts Council (England) is proving to be a huge success in both Dudley and Sandwell areas. The Sandwell Herald recently acclaimed the project and the Sandwell portraits began their borough-wide tour at the annual awards celebrations for Sandwell Libraries held at West Bromwich Town Hall. Dudley CVS proudly displayed Steve Grigg's pencil portrait of Mike Abrahams at their AGM held at Brierley Hill Civic and now plan to gather the portrait sitters and artists together for a further celebration in March 2019.
Harry Bloomer who led the project for MFAA said, "The project has proved to be a wonderful vehicle for placing what the group has established at The Art Yard at the centre of art activities that involve local artist working together with the community, lifting the status of our exhibitions.'
