Over the last few weeks artists have
taken their local Port by storm with a flurry of entries for the Port’s
Community Art Competition. In addition to the prize money the winner of the
Community Art Competition will have the opportunity to showcase their artwork
at Southwick Station, which will be viewed by the vast range of people that use
Sam Bryant, Sussex Community Rail
Partnership, said “with the deadline for Shoreham Port’s Community Art
Competition approaching, I am really looking forward to seeing the
winning pieces displayed at the station. Stations provide the perfect
'gallery' for artwork and work from the local community is by far the best work
to display in them."
The theme of the competition is Shoreham
Port but the nature and type of work is up to the individual entrant. Any
medium can be used, provided it will be possible to take a digital copy of the
entry, as original artwork will be available for return to the artist after the
competition. The artwork should be submitted to Shoreham Port, located at
Nautilus House, 90 – 100 Albion Street, Southwick, Brighton, BN42 4ED.
Sara Bassett, Finance Director said “It
is wonderful to see the community out and about enjoying their local Port and
encapsulating their favourite part in their own creative way. So many people
pass through the Port on a daily basis yet the same landscape can look so
vastly different depending on the artist’s style. We look forward to receiving
the last few entries as the competition comes to a close”.
The competition is running until 31st
October so it’s not too late to get your creative thinking cap on for a chance
to take first prize! To find out more about the art competition or to discuss
your entry please call a member of the team at Shoreham Port on 01273 598100.
